My blog is called Real Life for 2 main reasons: 1. I have found “real life” in Jesus Christ. Well, actually, He found me. I want to share the joy and hope I have in Him! (Psalm 40:1-3) 2. Life is not perfect, and neither am I. You won’t find many stories about how my house is perfectly decorated and cleaned, my children are dressed to the tee and behaving like angels, and I have a four course meal ready for my husband when he gets home from work; and you can, too, if you just do what I do! I want to get real and talk about all the issues we know we deal with! And add in some meaningless silliness while I’m at it, to help me get through the day! Leave a comment if you stop by!

I really wanted a place to be able to share about my life as a busy mom, multiple business owner, and entrepreneur. I really had no idea that it would grow so quickly and that people would actually find interest in what I wrote about. It has been so exciting to share about my life’s experiences, my triumphs and struggles, and then receive awesome words of advice, compassion, and encouragement from my readers.

The creation of my second blog, The Art of Random Willy-Nillyness (and yes there is a story behind the name blogged on Carolyn in Carolina) came after I hosted a giveaway on Carolyn in Carolina and decided that I did not want it to become a review blog. I really mulled it over because I love entering blog giveaways so it made sense to open a new blog just for reviews and giveaways. In less than 4 months, my review blog has grown and I was also able to keep kept the integrity of my other blog. I found it’s just a matter of balancing what feels right on each blog. It’s still weird to me that my life took this turn but I always believe we end up where we need to be. So here I am excited to see where my journey takes me next.

Lisa is a busy mom of two boys (with another on the way), who used to be a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. These days she is juggling play dates, preschool, and diapers and does not have a lot of time to devote to exercise. Fitness is important to her though, both for health and sanity reasons, so she started Workout Mommy as a way of keeping herself and others motivated to stay active. Her motto is: “Never underestimate the power of a workout!”

Sure, sometimes I feel like I’m headed straight into a hedge and I’ve come across more than my fair share of potholes, but I just hold my breath, take it all in, and enjoy every second, because life is passing me by way too fast.
‘Riding with no hands’ I’m free to reach for the things I really, really love and am having so much fun along the way.

At that point, I was a young woman who intended to be a single professional forever and aspired to be known as the neighborhood cat lady. But then I met my soul mate, and I quickly became his wife and the mother of a baby girl.These days, my daughter is a precocious toddler, and I am a busy working mother, and my life feels like home. I know that I’m right where I belong.
Feels Like Home is all about helping you make your life and your home more enjoyable. Because everyone eats, about half of my posts are devoted to food and cooking. The other half of my posts are on parenting, craft and sewing tutorials, activities to do with your family, ways to simplify home management, and, of course, my own adventures in parenting.

I’m just recently back from a 2 month blogging break during which I closed my blog. When I came back, I put my blog into its own domain and gradually people are finding me again and I’m finding them. I love reading comments and I spend entirely too much time visiting other blogs and commenting. 🙂 I’m very happy to be back and look forward to whatever the future holds! Come hang out with me. I make a great bloggy friend.
