Blizzard Blog Hop from Girl in the Sun

Hi, I'm Lisa

I found this blog through Courtney's Women Living Well blog which I follow and thought I'd join in. 

I'm really new to blogging and learning as I go along.. still don't know alot but the best way to learn is to just jump right in! I've been married for 21 years next month and I have four beautiful daughters, between the ages of almost 20 and 4 (yes I did say 4!). I have to mention that I live in the Caribbean and therefore I'm blistering in the sun here and not "snowed in". (Hey, don't be jealous.. I'd love to see snow someday ;-)

I've been a homemaker for 18 years now and still discovering that there's something new to learn everyday. My blog is my way of  sharing and learning from others on my faith, homemaking, parenting, anything to do with the kitchen.  So far, I've only been sharing on my faith and enjoying the experience of being able to write. I've always dabbled in writing since I was a child and just never followed through with anything I wrote.

My favourite thing to do is to curl up with  a good book and something to snack on and lose myself. After that, I guess my passion is in the kitchen - that's been my outlet for creativity. I love to try new recipes and the fulfilling feeling that comes with knowing you are making something that everyone cant wait to eat! I love when the whole house is filled with the aroma of something good in the oven. My four year old will stand at the top of the stairs and shout "I smell cinnamon buns!" She's got a nose for these things!

As I feel my way around, I hope to get better and improve on my blog.  Some of you have such beautiful layouts and pictures. It's useless asking my children for help, they laugh at my helplessness in front of a computer. I guess they get a kick out of knowing something that their "know it all" mom doesn't. lol! I have faith that I'll figure it out eventually.

Well, that's me in a nutshell. I think its exciting to be a part of something that reaches so many people and I look forward to 'meeting' more people.

Take care and God bless

So great to meet you on the bloghop! I have managed to click on all of the bloggers names who live in the WARM, SUNNY and beautiful weather! We are currently in Alaska (brrrrr!). I would give anything to spend a week in the Carribean! I look forward to reading more on your blog :)

I found you over at Guiding Light while blog hopping and thought I would come over and say I and welcome you to blogging.
I also have older and younger children. I have an almost 19 year old, a 17 1/2 year old, a 14 year old. Then with my new husband we have a 4 year old, 2 1/2 year old and a 9 month old.
Right now I may be a little jealous of you being in the Caribbean as my feet and fingers are freezing as I type.
Looking forward to reading more of your blog.
I invite you over to my main/homeschooling blog
www.totsandme.blogspot.com (I have a great giveaway going on right now)
and my weight loss/spiritual growth blog
Have a great day

Hello! I love to read and cook, too! I'm up in Canada so it's anything other than warm and sunny these days. I'm jealous!
Nice to meet you!

Hello Lisa Maria! Thanks so much for stopping by. It does look like we have a lot in common. I think you are off to a great start with your blog. I have enjoyed reading it this morning. I would love to visit the Caribbean one day. Hubby and I are thinking of taking a cruise for our 20th wedding anniversary, perhaps we will make it there! Have an awesome day and stay in touch!
