My name is Lisa. I’m married to my best friend, and we have two daughters. We live in Nebraska.
My oldest daughter left for college in 2014. I thought I had prepared myself for her leaving…well tried to anyway. We raise them to leave, right? But as I’ve seen, nothing can prepare a student, or her parents, or her little sister for such a huge change. More babbling about that here.
3 months after The College Girl left, WordPress ran a photo-a-day challenge. I hadn’t been posting much prior to that November, but I happened to see the challenge and thought I’d give it a try. I’d always liked taking photos, but had hadn’t been very purposeful or disciplined in trying to improve as a photographer.
The November photo challenge was really fun, and it ended up opening the door for another positive way to handle the difficulties in my life. Since then, there hasn’t been a week I haven’t gotten my camera out and taken pictures. It has gotten me outside, and has helped me to be more aware of and thankful for all of the beauty around me. I’ve learned a lot, and have also met some wonderful people in the WordPress blog community.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you say hello, so I can pop on over to your blog and wander around.
P.S. I’ve decided not to accept blog awards anymore. Thank you to those who have been so kind in nominating me. 🙂
