I want y’all to meet my 100th blog follower – an amazing, inspiring, strong, beautiful woman – Shannon Reedy Olson. I am so excited that you are enjoying my story and are a part of this wild adventure! I love that all 103 of you are reading and sharing along with me – because life is so much sweeter with friends.
Shannon and I have been friends since she was born. Her family lives next door to my family in Thousand Oaks. My mom is her God-mother. Her sister is also a good friend of mine and lives close to our home in Sunnyvale. And her Grandmother is a role model to all of us, having traveled and worked in Saudi Arabia on her own. Her mom is the sweetest neighbor and friend too. And those are just the women of the family! Our families are so intertwined and connected and it’s such a good thing to have friends you adopt as family!
I’ve always admired Shannon for her determination and willingness to try new things. She sets her mind to something and goes after it. She always has a glowing smile and lots of love to share with everyone and is so sincere. The coolest thing is how much she loves her family, but that’s not even half of it. She is a mom of two beautiful girls, a loving wife, and works full time as a fire fighter. How sexy is that?
A strong, beautiful woman who has made it in a male dominated profession and has proved herself worthy and fit to provide outstanding public service. She loves her job with a passion. And anyone who does what they love, should be admired.
Way to go, Shannon!! I admire you!! Way to live your life to the fullest and to celebrate it with glamour and style! I love you
