15 May Life in The Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project – Meet Shannon and Augie over in the 1900 block of S Adams Street
Life in The Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project
I loved meeting Shannon and Augie over in the 1900 block of S Adams Street and taking their Porchtrait!
We worked really hard to get a image where Augie was looking at the camera but in the end… I was no competition for any dog that drifted by!
When I asked Shannon my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….
What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing?
It’s been difficult not getting together with my friends who live down the street. We normally cook dinner together at least once a week, and I’ve missed preparing and sharing meals with them. Facetime dinners have helped.
What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?
I miss hugging my parents. Everything seems a little less scary after a hug from mom and dad.
What do you look forward to the most?
I look forward to my work schedule going back to normal. To help fill the needs of my hospital, I’ve been working odd hours. I’ve never worked a 12-hour shift or worked overnight before, so that’s been a big adjustment. Being able to grab a beer at Rahr again won’t hurt either.
How long have you lived in Fairmount?
I’ve lived in Fairmount for over two years, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now. I fell in love with Fort Worth while going to TCU. I had to leave for graduate school but moved to Fairmount as soon as possible.
Share your favorite thing about living in Fairmount?
I love the community and willingness to help. My dog really should be named after Steve McQueen. One morning before work, I was distraught that he got out of the backyard. Within minutes of posting in the Facebook group, a man I’ve never met offered his time to help look for him. I was so touched!
What is your favorite business in Fairmount? (And why)
My favorite business is Southside Muay Thai / Turbo’s Fight Fit. I’ve missed the consistency and structure of going to the gym after work. I was really proud of the routine I established and the progress I made in my endurance. We’ve been doing Zoom workouts, but nothing is quite the same as getting together and working hard in the same place.
What kind of work do you do?
I’m a registered dietitian at a hospital in the area.
