Meet The Shannons


The Shannons met almost a decade ago when they were both campaigners at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He was advocating for a better world for chickens, and she was exposing the cruelty behind the big top. It only took a couple of years, a new job, and a few moves up and down the East Coast for them to fall in love.

In hindsight, Annie and Dan were in a truly ridiculous state of denial. The common wisdom went like this: so you visit each other on the weekends; take road trips together; email every day; talk on the phone for hours; flirt shamelessly; and you’re “just friends?” One can see why people were skeptical. But that’s the thing—they WERE just friends. They weren’t playing mind games, or getting off on the pent-up sexual tension, or just trying to get in each other’s pants. They were just two people who genuinely enjoyed each other’s company more than anyone else’s. That was it. And that simple joy of being together remains the foundation for their relationship to this day. Most people who know them know that life didn't make it easy for them to be together; but since they finally got to have the relationship they always wanted, they’ve become the definition of happiness, home, love and family.

Basically, their love story is the definition of an epic romance: with the witty banter of a Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy romantic comedy; the passion stubbornness, and romantic misunderstandings of a Shakespearean courtship; the nail-biting anticipation and undeniable chemistry of Mulder and Scully; and of course, two spoiled kittens. And now this blog: We hope you’ll follow along with the Shannons as they veganize The Betty Crocker Cookbook, have lots of nerd-tastic adventures, and enjoy the easy domestic bliss of compassionate living.
