Lisa Leonard: Life By Design

Life By Design

A lot of friends and family don’t get why I have a blog.  It takes a lot of time to come up with ideas, to take pictures and to post.  Heck …I wonder sometimes why I have a blog!?  Please tell me I’m not alone. There are a lot of reasons why I do and at the very tippy top of that list is the connections I’ve made with people.
I remember the first time I met her.  I had been a fan of her online store and blog for awhile.  In my mind she was a rock star.  And in real life, she was even better.  The kind of person that makes you feel like a million bucks whenever you are around… you just can’t help but feel genuinely loved when you are with her.  Not only that…but she gets it.  She’s a special needs momma.  And she is a beautiful one.  She talks about what a gift both her boys are and she talks about the struggles too. 

Lisa Leonard is an inspiration to me.  And I know she will be to you (if she isn’t already)!  She has new adventures ahead…a show called Life By Design:
Tears rolled down my face as she described the fears and joys of her special boy.  Yes! Yes! Yes!! My thoughts exactly.  Take a minute to watch:


I’m excited for you, my sweet, inspirational friend.  This is the kind of reality show the world needs. And I can’t wait to watch!  Who’s with me?
