Lifestyle blog launches book; reading, signing set Saturday
Shannon Ables grew up in Wallowa County and now is having a sweet homecoming.
A reading and signing for her new book, “Choosing the Simply Luxurious Life: A Modern Woman’s Guide,” will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at The Bookloft, 107 E. Main St., Enterprise.
Her lifestyle blog, The Simply Luxurious Life, was launched in 2009. There, the Pendleton High School English and social studies teacher posts daily on how to live a refined life on an everyday income. The site receives more than 350,000 readers monthly from around the world.
Ables grew up on Alder Slope and graduated from Enterprise High School. She went on to attend Western Oregon University and then University of Oregon for graduate school and had the opportunity to study abroad in Angers, France.
That whetted her appetite, she said, for all things French and instilled in her a passion for curating.
Today, Ables enjoys writing her blog posts, traveling, experimenting with new recipes and reading. Her other passions include fashion, wine, food, design, gardening, travel and anything French
A blogger and freelance writer, she enjoys exploring her passions through the written word.
Ables has lived and taught in metropolitan, suburban and rural environments. That has helped her realize that it is what each person brings to whatever their present environment that creates a simply luxurious life.
