Hi.  I’m Christy, a Stay-At-Home / Work-At-Home Mommy to my active boys, Banan and Calen, and I am proud to be a firefighter’s wife to my wonderful husband, Patrick.

We love our little life in the country with our pups Halie (who doesn’t know she’s a dog… I think we were remiss in telling her!) and Rain and our cat Tink (Banan named him TinkerBell when we thought he was a she… oops!).

I enjoy being very involved at Banan’s school - volunteering in the classroom and for school functions, making theme treats for his class each week, attending all his field trips, and being active in the PTO.

My Blogging Journey

I started my blogging journey 15 years ago.

Back then, there weren’t blogs as you know them now.  We were email newsletter editors – providing much the same content that blogs do now – sharing personal thoughts & sniplets of our daily lives, recipes, freebies, tips and tricks for just about everything, readers’ comments, and the list goes on.  Our subscribers were a community.

I was the editor of The Game Of Life Newsletter, on the board of & for a time president of Phoenix, an organization of email newsletter editors (think of it as a community for bloggers now, where we shared ideas and worked together), and dabbled in website creation for a time, creating a multitude of webpages much like I create blog posts now.  For a short time, I changed the newsletter to webpage based.

Fast forward to today…

Shake The Salt (the original since 2008!) is a little bit of all the things I love and am about. I am a social media mom, but more than a mom and a lot of the time I can be pretty random, so you will find a mix of everything here!
