Hi, I’m Lyssa.

A loving mother, passionate wife and work-from-home entrepreneur obsessed with my homemade backyard beach and my amateur latte art skills. I believe life is about the little moments: it isn’t always going to be some grandiose, splendid experience — unless we look at it that way! My stories focus on a shift in perspective.
