About Shawni Pothier

Shawni Eyre Pothier is living the life she always dreamed of: the one where she gets to be a wife and a mother. She and her husband live in Phoenix with their five children. Shawni takes her job as a mother very seriously and strives to promote joy in the often treacherous journey of motherhood on her blog. Shawni’s fifth child (a daughter named Lucy) was born with a rare genetic syndrome that causes blindness (amidst a myriad of other health problems). Shawni and her mother, Linda Eyre, started the I Love Lucy Project and have become advocates for the Foundation Fighting Blindness and other organizations that may be able to help Lucy. While serving as Arizona’s Young Mother of the Year, she was named the National Young Mother of the Year by American Mothers for 2011. http://www.71toes.com/
