Hi. My name is Lisa.
I started blogging in 2008. At that time, I was a stay-at- home mom with a baby and a toddler. There were many things that concerned me about the care and well-being of children. I reached out through blogging to connect with other parents to share information on issues like BPA in plastics and vaccines. I loved the camaraderie and enjoyed exchanging information with intelligent, thoughtful people.
A year later I started graduate school in pursuit of becoming an LPC. My blog fell to the wayside, left to gather tumbleweeds.
I am back.
My focus is still the same. I am passionate about the care and well-being of children. That will never change. I am also passionate about healthy living, vegetarian cooking and baking with whole foods, living green, writing, yoga, and running.
I am a vegetarian and have been for 19 years. I do not cook with a lot of dairy or eggs and recently started experimenting with vegan baking. I have been active in the kitchen most of my life. My Greek father was a restaurant owner, as his father was. My maternal grandparents owned a bakery and I owned a coffee shop in Scottsdale in my mid 20s. We always ate healthy, home cooked meals when I was a kid. We do the same in our home and many things are made from scratch.
Currently, I am a counseling intern and I work with abused children and their families. They inspire me with their wisdom, strength, and courage each day.
My husband and I have been together since 1999 and we have two lovely boys, Christian age 6 and Roman age 3. My blog documents our journey to live a simpler, healthy, happy, meaningful life.
Thank you for stopping by.
Peace and Love,
