Hey y’all! I’m Lisa! I’m a teacher, traveler, voracious reader and writer, who loves good food and good friends. I have recently returned to the US from four glorious years of living abroad. I’m a native Texan and love being at home in the Lone Star State. I certainly don’t have all the answers to life’s questions, but I hope you find my site a source of inspiration and encouragement as we navigate the sometimes stormy waters of daily living. Some things you should know about me:
I am for love. I love love. I’m one of those hopeless idealists who believes that we will find the answer to our problems when we seek them in love. I am that girl.
I believe in food and bringing people to the table to share meals and hope and laughter. Sharing food and ideas at a table is one of the greatest ways to meet people where they are and to listen and learn. I’ll give you guys some creative ways to do this!
I want to be a helper. Let’s face it, there are so many negative things happening in our world these days we need helpers. People who love others and want to make our world a better place for all. I’ll help you guys find some meaningful ways to be helpers too.
I love books!! I have been in love with reading since I was a little girl. From cutting my reading tooth on the wonderful stories of Roald Dahl to helping Nancy Drew solve her many mysteries, to my current obsessions, I can’t imagine a life without books. I’ll post my recommendations and a link to my virtual book club so you can join us.
I am, by nature, a wanderer. I’ve got this constant, unsettled feeling deep in my bones—it’s something like belonging nowhere and everywhere all at the same time. This accounts for my passion for travel. I long for the people I’ve yet to meet, the places I’ve yet to discover. Traveling…it changes you. I’ll give you some tips on how you can see the world and connect with your inner explorer.
I love writing. From a young age, I was writing thoughts and stories and poems in journals. In college, I took all the writing courses I could cram into my schedule, prompting my father to ask “why do you have so many English classes?” As a temporary “business” major, he found this choice of courses suspect. My passion for words, for the force of language hasn’t died, and I relish having this little place to pen thoughts and ideas and to share them with you.
I sincerely love my little community and am thrilled you are joining me on this journey. Welcome!!
