About Us

Hi! I'm Shady Lady, happily married Queen, stay-at-home, unschooling mom to our sweet daughter, Princess, who is 7 years old. We are originally from the other coast, but call Portland, Oregon home. Join me for a giggle, a sigh, a whine and whatever else comes along. Please leave your comment to let me know you stopped by. I love reading them and I almost always reply right in the comments, so be sure to subscribe to comments. =)

Meet the Lizard King (LK), amazing husband and daddy. The hardest working man I know. He is a man of many talents and can still surprise me even after 10 years together. A long time ago, I made a list of what I was looking for in a man. He was everything on my list. He has returned from Afghanistan after being gone for a year. It was a difficult time, but we've made it through. I think we are a very strong family and he is the source of that strength.

Here is Princess, our one and only sweet little girl, sporting her favorite color and her  daddy's Afghanistan location. She is daddy's little girl and yes, she has him wrapped around her little finger. Anything for his princess! She missed her daddy terribly. It was a rough time, but she and I got through together. She is so happy to have her daddy home.
