Hello! I’m Shawn Ann

Beauty-Full Welcome Box

Shawn AnnHey there! I’m Shawn Ann Griffith and I am a born-and-raised Michigander (Metro Detroit area)! 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 work outside of the home full-time, 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.

Shawn Ann & Herbie

Living to the Fullest is a virtual hub for all things mom, covering topics like The Good Life, Culinary Creativity, Tools of the Trade, Keeping it Simple, and Miscellaneous Debris. 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.


Unique Watch

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).  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.
