Guest Blogger: Maggy

Guys, you are in for a treat.  Maggy is pretty awesome. We went to college together but didn't really know each other despite having common friends.  Crazy.  Now that we live hundreds of miles apart, we are reconnecting through the blogging world.  Thank you technology.  Thank you Maggy.


Hello! I was beyond humbled and excited when Shannon invited me to do up a guest blog for her. I can’t imagine finding the time with a new baby and going back to work and certainly admire her for doing so!

Blogging can be both exhilarating and fun, and also quite a bit of work.
I suppose, however, that could also describe most things in life that are worthwhile.

I think this is why things like coffee and blogs exits…
and then chamomile tea for the end of the day.
Not that I have a mug next to me or anything.

I will admit, I started my blog so I could track the “good stuff”. Not the stuff that required coffee, but the other things. I called my blog “Living Tall” as a sort of mantra, a reminder to do so in the midst of a time when it’s all to easy to work hard and play little.

Too deep?
Moving on.

I also called it that because my husband is 6’9”.
I probably should have said that part first.
I am 5’4” and so – I live tall.

What does this mean? I will tell you!
I hang dry all of my husband’s clothing.
Shopping is tricky at best.
We check in early at the airport to nab exit row seats.
People assume he is a basketball player.
(He’s not.) goes by without a tall joke from someone.
I feel like a kindred spirit* to tall people, once I flashed a huge smile at a super tall guy.
Turns out he was on the Orlando Magic (reinforcing above stereotype).

We don’t have any children yet, but I’m sure there will be stories to tell for that too. IF I keep blogging…not everyone can be a superstar like Shannon. I can barely leave my puppy when I leave for work, I can’t imagine leaving Behr.

*I may or may not be watching Anne of Avonlea right now.


  1. Oh my gosh. The basketball stereotype makes me laugh! My husband and I always think that we're looking at a pro athlete when we see really big or really tall people haha. Too funny that you smiled right at an Orlando Magic player and didn't even know it. I love your Living Tall story!

  2. oh do i loveeeee this!!!! Living Tall Baby!!!
