About Me

Connect with Lisa. Hi, my name is Lisa. Join me as we create peace, space, and tranquility in our homes and lives. I am passionate about sharing home decorating tips, organizational skills, and wellness strategies designed to simplify and promote harmony in the midst of your fast-paced everyday life.

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am so glad you are here. I help heart-centered woman like you style and declutter your home to create a happier, mindful and more balanced life. I share home decorating, organization and mindful health strategies designed to simplify your busy life.  Ready to follow your heart, and lead a mindful life?  Hands up If that’s you! Shouting ‘YES’, then you are in the right place, my friend.

Speaking of friends, I married my best friend (cliche I know, but true) thirty years ago, and can not imagine my life without him.  We enjoy hanging out at our RV and boating on the lake in the summer.  The quiet, and disconnect from the busy city while we connect with nature, revitalizes our souls and strengthens our relationship.  We are fortunate to be able to travel often and would like to take one or two trips each year, next up is London and Paris!

This is us on our wedding day!

And our three beautiful daughters are in the picture below!  Honestly, watching them grow up and mature into amazing young women has given me a joy beyond measure. I am so proud of all that they stand for and amazed every day at how they love big and have a deep compassion for the people around them. This photo was taken in our backyard at our ‘baby’ girl’s University Graduation celebration. By the way, the tallest girl in the middle is the youngest.  We have a registered nurse (on the left), a pro-blogger (on the right), and a biochemical engineer (in the middle), this is one proud mama.

I love to decorate and design, read, craft, DIY, and scrapbook.  Basically, I like to make things pretty, and use the creative, right side of my brain.  To stay in shape I love running and find it a major stress reducer. My home yoga practice keeps me centered and balanced while promoting wellness and a strong connection to the world around me.  Hanging out with my best friends, the ‘sisterchicks’ who are near and dear to my heart on a regular basis is a must. We share our lives, we understand and do not judge, we encourage and build each other up and we also laugh so hard we might even cry.  Life is good.

I work part-time as a medical office assistant for a busy family practice that specializes in obstetrics. Previously I was employed at the University of British Columbia Southern Medical Program, an optometrist office and in a pediatric ophthalmologist clinic. My passion for helping people has drawn me to employment in the healthcare field.

My love for helping others inspires me to write, share ideas and what I learn along the way.  Guiding you to lead a balanced, mindful and heart-centered life by keeping it simple and real.
