Hello! I’m Shawn Ann and this is Living to the Fullest

About Shawn Ann

Shawn Ann Griffith owner and writer at Living to the FullestHey there! I’m Shawn Ann Griffith and I’m the owner of Living to the Fullest.  I am a born-and-raised Michigander (Metro Detroit area) now living in Hawaii! I’ve been married to the best man I know since 1999, we have two hurricane boys (2005 & 2011). In addition to being a  mother, I love to research my family history, garden, do crafts, crochet, and visit local attractions.

I started blogging at Shawn Ann’s World back in 2000 just for fun and then in 2005 it was a way to let my extended family know what was going on in our lives and to keep up to date with facts and pictures of our son.  At the end of 2009, I decided to expand my website to include product reviews and hosting giveaways.  In 2015, Shawn Ann’s World was rebranded to Living to the Fullest.

About Living to the Fullest

Living to the Fullest is a virtual hub for all things mom, covering topics like The Good Life, In the KitchenMom TechDIY Crafts, Travel Adventures, and more! We try to put the real world into our product review posts so that you, our readers, can get a first-hand experience of how the product works and if it is right for your family.

I do get a little help from a couple of people to contribute here at Living to the Fullest, their writings are that of their own (well, they tell me their thoughts).  Also, I Disclose because I am required to!

I try to post on a daily basis, however, this isn’t something that can always be done. I would love the opportunity to review your products or services and help get the word out about your business.

If you have a product review and/or giveaway request please see my product review policy and giveaway policy for details and requirements. You can contact me anytime via email at shawn@livingtothefullest.com.
