A Happy Heart

It seems just about right that in a month that celebrates love that I’m going to finally launch the blog I’ve been talking about for the last year.Ann Marie On the Shore is finally here! My hope is that this blog, this space, will be a pretty place for you to escape to and learn a little bit about some of my favorite people, places, and things. Along the way, I’ll also introduce you to the people who are truly the bright lights in my life. Without them, I’d have a whole lot less to write about.My promise is that Ann Marie On The Shore will be authentic and relevant to where I am in my life. So many of us are in the same boat with our children growing up and heading off to college just as our parents are needing us a little more. The smile lines on our faces are becoming more defined, as those darn holiday pounds are getting harder (and harder!) to lose. And, the one thing I know for sure is that the older I get, the more meaningful I want things to be. (Fancy bags aside.) We’re in this life together, my friends, and I look forward to living it more fully with you.I hope you have had an amazing Valentine’s week!xo

My name is Ann Marie Scheidler and I'm thrilled you've decided to check out my blog. I'm a pearl-loving yogi with a thing for travel, a weakness for beautiful bags, and a passion for storytelling. In this space, I'll be sharing stories about my family, go-to recipes, my wellness journey, fashion and beauty favorites, and my love for Chicago’s North Shore. I find new inspiration wherever I go. Thanks so much for coming along for the ride!
