Hi! I am Lisa.
I am the mom/wife/blogger to this blog. My family and I live in Chicago. I am a former single working Mom who is now a stay at home Mom to three wonderful kids who each have an amazingly unique personality. I am married to the most wonderful 6′ 8″ man ever; he is my world. Yup, you read that right my husband is super tall. : ) I enjoy traveling, crafting, dancing, cleaning, searching the internet, decorating my home, going on day trips (Adventures) with my kids, homeschooling little ones, anything Disney, and my Jeep.
I worked in the Human Resources profession for almost 10 years. From being an HR manager to specializing in employee benefits. It was through my career in HR that I discovered my passion to help others.
This blog came into existence after I decided to stay home and leave the corporate world to raise our children.
What motherhood has looked like for me
The journey of my motherhood is unique since I have been on both ends of the spectrum (single mom to now stay at home mom). In addition, I have almost 16 years between my oldest and youngest.
I started my blog as a way to do something outside of being a mommy. I love being creative and I wanted to help contribute to the family finances. It was also a calling to me to help other mother’s. Being a mom is hard.
Being a single mom, then working mom, then stay at home mom each has/ had their challenges. So I wanted to encourage other moms from my experience and with the love I received during my times of need.
If there is one thing I have learned about being a mom is that is takes a village! You need people to help you through your mom journey people who will be there for you. My goal is to be your friend. Sharing advice from my chronicles of life. Sharing ideas in helping you find stuff to make your mommy life a whole lot better.
I enjoy helping moms with parenting, family fun products, traveling with kids, finding natural products, balancing her motherhood while encouraging her to have fun with her kids.
I am a Christian mom who didn’t originally come from this up brining but I live and run a Christ-centered home with my children.
My mission is to help find solutions, share advice and identify products that can make a difference in a mom’s life by allowing her to simplify her life, live healthier and have a more productive motherhood.
Mom Gadgets & Gear
I have a passion for researching, gadgets, gear and finding healthier options for my family. I love anything that makes motherhood more efficient, productive and that is safer for everyone. Most importantly I love sharing everything I find with the world.
Being an active mom is what I am all about, so you will find products that I love to help achieving being active with your kids. I take daily adventures with my kids and we are a family who loves to travel. Products to help us along our journey is a must.
We have taken our kids around the world. Let me just say preparing to take our kids to China with one of them being under the age of two took TONS of preparation. We managed an 18-hour direct flight and no screaming toddler tantrums.
I invested in some awesome products to create an almost flawless trip happen. That’s why you will find products on this blog that I believe will truly help you live your best motherhood.
Getting things done as a mom
I am an advocate for routines and keeping a clean home. I know some moms struggle with this.
I am the type of mom who loves fresh carpet lines. I am a bit minimalist and a bit realist. But I am a dreamer at heart. I believe you can do anything and that nothing put in your path can derail your dreams.
I love to declutter and get rid of things but I also don’t overly stress about when the house gets messy.
Yes, there is a difference between messiness and cleanliness.
