Hi! I'm Lissy. I recently escaped corporate america to focus more on my family and explore other passions.
I am a wife and mom to three awesome kids. I advocate for children with special needs, and specifically Down Syndrome, ADHD and SPD because of my own family's needs. I never want to put limits on the abilities of my children. I want to learn and grow with them, I want to encourage and set them up for success.
I love to travel, read, run, paint, create, decorate, plan, cook, and dance -- you may see a sprinkling of these things in my blog posts. But let's be honest, I don't have time to do all the things I love. I don't even get a shower every day! (But I do change my hairstyle...a lot!)
The heart of my blog is my family and our journey to find balance in an often hectic life. There are so many areas that I WANT to focus on and be great at: my faith, my marriage, my kids, my career, my health & well being, my friends, my home, special needs advocacy, volunteeerism, and so on. Like many others, I feel stretched to the brim. I can't do it all, and something is always sacrificed.
But, I'm learning as I go. Come along with me on this journey. Let's learn and grow together.
I'm glad you are here!
