Welcome! I’m Shelby, the wife & lover of a Midwestern hunter. You’ve probably guessed that much! We’ve settled ourselves in a humble ranch home on a few acres in southwest Missouri.  As a newly married hunters wife, it didn’t take long to learn that hunting isn’t a hobby, but a lifestyle. It bleeds over into my cooking, our schedules, budget, & family life. I want to share the laughs, lessons, & love with you as we go about our daily lives, seeking to be intentional in the little things that make a lasting love….

I love learning new things & creating, so you’ll find a little bit of everything here to (hopefully) improve and simplify your life! I’m a lover of many things and hobbies, & I usually dip my toes in things enough to be a little dangerous! I’ve got a git er done kind of attitude, and I’m rarely idle. We might be ripping out cabinets, finding the perfect date night makeup look, baking an amazing chocolate cake from scratch,  changing the oil, or sitting up in a deer stand quietly watching the sunset & waiting for that prized buck to say hello. Whatever we’re doing, I’d like to take you along for the ride. Life? Let’s do this! Together.

I’m a lover of the outdoors & amazing views, but you’ll probably find me in the crawling position, or clenching my fists around the nearest immovable object, shaking like a baby when it comes to heights. We have a love hate relationship.

I take my coffee any way but weak.

I’m so infatuated with goats and chickens. I hope to add them to our 37 acres soon!

I’m a natural expert in creating awkward, laughable situations.

Photography is my first love. I love capturing special moments and making memories with portrait photography. Interested in a session? Stop by shelbyshootsphotography.com

I cannot do algebra to save my life.

I’m fascinated with architecture, and I’ve been drafting home plans since I was 12.

I’m an introvert. I love people. One on one. Tiny Groups. Real conversations. Zero small talk.

I love to laugh, and I hope you do too, because we’ll be doing lots of it!

Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?
