Meet Shannon

I am a city and transportation planner living in Southern California with my husband, Zach. My favorite things include coffee, food, TV, movies, Disneyland, hyperbole, and friendship. My biggest accomplishment to date is becoming an annual passholder at Disneyland, and the thing I am most grateful for in life is not having a single food allergy. My ultimate dream is to own a dog. As someone who does not edit text professionally, I am counting on Diane to make sure we don’t have any typos. ;) I love blogs and Diane, so I am excited to be a part of Smoosh Life and hope you enjoy it, too!

Meet Diane

I'm an editor and writer in L.A. who loves strong coffee, psychological thrillers, and belting out Disney songs. When I'm not doing those things, I'm usually running or doing yoga, reading a book with an old-fashioned in hand, watching every Gordon Ramsay show, binge-watching Netflix and Hulu, and driving (because in SoCal, that takes up half our lives). Also, as someone who wakes up at 4 a.m. every single day just to avoid traffic on the 405, I'm counting on Shannon to solve all our transportation problems. ;) That's me in a little nutshell. I'm SO excited for this blog, and I hope that you all enjoy it as much as we do!

When asked if he wants whipped cream added to his soda, he always answers "yes." Phillip takes photographs for Smoosh with his beautiful and fancy camera. Phillip's favorite pastimes include breaking sleds from shredding so hard on the slopes.
