Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back

Oh my goodness, hello my friends, I have missed you! Some of you have followed me during the last few months on IG, thank you for that. After blogging for 8+ years, I took my first blog break which allowed me to step back, see what I enjoy and want to write about, and re-brand to a more "me" vibe. To any new readers, hello and welcome to my space! My name is Lisa and this is my new blog, Balancing Lisa. 
My life has always been a balancing act, but I only shared a very small portion of what was going on IRL because I had a blog that mostly focused on fashion and motherhood. So, what's different? Nothing and everything all at the same time. My interests in sharing my fashion, motherhood, and lifestyle type posts has not gone away, although there will be a lot of new topics and series to look forward to. To be honest, I would have loved to launch doing one specific thing, a niche blog if you will, but my life isn't one specific thing. It never has been, so I wanted to create a space that I can share all parts of me. Yes, there will still be a lot of fashion posts, but I want to be able to talk about more topics in this space. Maybe I'll find my niche, maybe I'll always be a bit of a balancing act.

OK, here are the cliff-notes on me: I am a wife, mother-of-two, autism warrior, and fashion lover.  I am obsessed with flowers and succulents, coffee shops and antiquing, jewelry and shoes. I love all things art, photography, and am drawn to colorful places. I plan to plant my first flower garden this year so I can cut flowers from my yard and save some coin...I buy a lot of bouquets. (Seriously!) I love cooking and baking (mostly gluten free & low dairy) and enjoy coming up with/tweaking recipes to fit my family's needs. I love styling outfits for myself, hubby, and kids and trying new beauty products and makeup make me all types of happy. Travel fuels my soul...so do palm trees so I try to get away (with and without the kiddos) as often as possible. Music is life, I love reading all sorts of books. I enjoy yoga and have been meditating more often lately. I am drawn to positive people, I am all about women supporting each other. Ladies, we don't have to tear each other down, we can lift each other up as we climb! I am a chronic pain sufferer and will be for the rest of my life (spinal stenosis...two cervical fusions so far), all of these things are part of me. All of these areas I plan to share with you in some capacity on this blog.

I am super excited to start this new chapter in my life and can't wait to share it with you! Things to look forward to in the next few months: Hawaii recap, Vow Renewal post, Outfit posts, Gardening tips, Round up (favorite product posts), Home Decor, Life with Autism, Recipes, and so much more! Make sure you follow me on IG as I not only do IG stories daily, but I will be hosting 5 more giveaways there in the next 30 days as a giant thank you to you, my readers! 

Still with me? Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you check back often. Make it a great day, you are the only one with that power! xoxo
