50 Things to Know About Lisa

Photo from My 30th Birthday Party
For those of you who do not know I turned 30 this year.  I feel so blessed to be at this point of my life.  I try to live in each moment.  For those of you who do not know I started writing the 50 Things to Know Series of Books.  This year for my birthday I was given a Book “50 Things to Know About Lisa” from a close friend Sarah (http://www.theclericalerror.com/) and (http://www.grimestonephotoblog.com/).  We feel  mutually blessed to have each other in our and our families lives.  We have little girls that are only about a week apart.  We love watching them grow together.  Anyway, where is the book she wrote for me for my 30th birthday.  And she says she isn’t a writer!

Foreword


I like Lisa because I like Maria.  I also like her voice.  It’s her birthday today and we get to go to her party.  Birthdays are fun!

It is very nice of Lisa to have a birthday party for us.  I hope she likes her birthday.  She is so sweet and kind.  She is good at thinking about other people, very caring.  And I like when she babysits us.
