About

I. Am. Lisa. Whew! I finally introduced myself without the often used “so-and-so’s mom”! Yesss!!!
With that little declaration out of the way, I move on to how blessed I am to be the mother that I always dreamed to be with our little crew of four.image 

They keep my life full of everything from joy, love, crazy good fun….to…wait for it….chaos, stress and lessons. It’s true. We’re not alone. The parents that seem to “have it all together”….no, no, NO….they don’t. They are PERFECTLY IMPERFECT just like you and me. Above all, my littles have evolved my heart to be equipped with what I am quite sure are buckets for each of them, filled with so much love that they run over at the brim. Which by the way, totally explains my overstock of proud-mom-happy-tears.  Naturally I will post plenty of pictures of my family so if you notice only three of our four kiddos in most of my photos, it is only due to my stepson living several states away so he is not in many of our day-to-day pictures.  Just know he is not omitted intentionally.  It’s just one of those things.  We get him in family pics every chance we get….and you’ll know when we do as he is the only 6’4″ teen in our family and that I know personally…until his siblings catch up that is!

Now, My Mister Man (the hubster-dude de casa-handsome devil)…well to keep it simply simple just like him….his unwavering support, love, respect and friendship are priceless . I am so lucky that at the end of “those days” (we all have them)…he really is my soft place to fall. Oh, and not in a “he ate too many Krispy Kreme doughnuts” kind of way. The words “everything’s gonna be okay” from anyone else could never have the gravity that they do when they come from him (…and maybe Justin Timberlake…and maybe Tim McGraw…ahhh I digress).

I love to spend time with my family and friends. Some of my favorite activities are cooking, reading, gardening, sewing, DIY projects, ziplining, traveling and like Buddy the Elf…smiling is my favorite. Cheeese! 🙂 Some of my favorite shows to watch are Modern Family, Chrisley Knows Best, Downton Abbey, Long Island Medium, Dr. Phil and anything with Chef Gordon Ramsey. Did I mention that I like to do all of these activities at the same time? Hey remember, mom of a small army here! I got this!
So there you have it…just a glimpse into my Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar! I hope my blog will bring you something positive every time you visit….whether it is a smile at a heart-warming quote, a REAL LOL (not just one you type and actually hold in) at some life experience. Maybe you will find inspiration to try a new recipe or excitement to take on one of my DIY projects. Whatever your takeaway is…enjoy!
Please join me in spreading positivity, compassion and kindness. This world belongs to our CHILDREN and it is up to us to leave it better in every way possible. Food for thought: Consider looking at the people you rush by on the sidewalk…smile…heck, say hi! Let someone have that parking spot you were waiting for “first”. Why not kindly offer for the person with only two items to go in front of you in the checkout line?
I look forward to building a community here that will be a “Hub of Happiness”.  I welcome and encourage your comments and feedback.  Thanks for reading!

~ Lisa
