About Me

 The first time I read the book You are My I Love You to my daughter, it spoke to me profoundly. For such a simple book, the message is powerful and it spoke to my new mom heart directly. It basically uses metaphors to describe the relationship of parent to child. My favorite line is, ‘I am your favorite book. You are my new lines.

And thus, My New Lines was born. 

Here I chronicle those new lines. Before we go any further, yes this is a mommy blog, but it's not just a mommy blog. Here I share my thoughts on life as a wife, mother, and a woman wanting to treat her home, body, and those around her right. I share about motherhood, marriage, homemaking, womanhood, faith, and health. 

I’m Sharlee. I am a pretty normal Idahoan who lives a life of passion. I am a former elementary school teacher turned work at home mom. Resigning from teaching was a huge leap of faith for me, but so far, I can say for certain that I don't wish to be anywhere else. 

I have a mad obsession with sunshine, country music, and food. I am fiercely in love with my husband, Zach. I am even more in love (which I never thought possible) with my daughter and being a mom. 

I also really love Netflix binging, date nights, Cherry Coke, and high heels. I'm not obsessed with lipstick or selfies the way the rest of the internet world is, but I hope we can still be friends. 

Welcome! I hope you'll share your lines with me and join the discussion. I'd love to hear from you!
