I’m Alyssa, but my parents called me Lola when I was a little bird. I was born and raised in Texas, and my husband and I are lucky enough to still call it home.
I’m thirty-something, married to Marc, mama to Maggie and Ruby, and soaking up every day of life in hopes of learning something new. Between working full-time and taking care of my family, I like to write and make stuff.
I don’t have fancy secret recipes, flawless photography, or the answers to your problems, and I struggle with depression and anxiety. But I do love trying new things, writing stories, and marching to the beat of my own drum. I also like to watch obscure YouTube videos, buy scrapbook supplies, take naps, and make my family smile.
That’s the five-minute version. Stick around if you want to figure it all out with me.
[NOTE: Think of this blog as my living room: a comfortable space that I’m inviting you to. Sometimes, in my living room, I drop the f-bomb, and other colorful language. If that makes you uncomfortable, you don’t have to sit on the couch. I invite you to enjoy yourself here in my safe, loving space, but it’s totally cool if you want to wait outside too.]
