Lovely Lisa

Hopefully you've seen our group coaching info this week and you're considering joining or if you'd be so kind pass it along to someone who you think the group would be perfect for!  This group is for any woman wanting to change her relationship with food through the holidays, a time when food can get the best of us.  I know I've spent my fair share of holidays past face first into one of my moms chocolate cream pies!

Today, I thought I'd spend a moment today telling you why I've teamed up with Lisa.

 Lisa and I first met at Breathe.   She worked at the front desk for some time and during that time we really connected.  Have you ever met someone where you feel so energized after spending time with them?  That's Lisa.  Each time she'd come to work I'd beam and feel lifted up by her presence.  It was the same for her. 

We kept in touch after she left to focus on her rapidly growing food blog and got together every once in a while to dream and catch up.  The conversation of how we'd collaborate has been on-going almost since day 1 of meeting each other.  Lisa asked me to help style a shoot for her for a magazine feature and I thought OH HOW MUCH FUN so of course I said yes, raided my studio of anything I thought would work and headed over to her place.  We spent the day shooting a fall pancake brunch (when the issue comes out I will post a little update so you can see it).  I folded napkins, fussed over twine and cutting out paper leaves to tie on pears while she moved around the table shooting.  It was effortless fun.  We talked and talked about our lives, our marriages, our work, what would come next. The idea of group coaching was a giant AH HA that filled the room.  We both found ourselves with stupid grins on our faces and a knowing that now lives inside to this day that says this is right.  

Lisa and I share very similar stories of sickness and health and food had much to do with our full recoveries once we were out of the hospital (hospital food won't get anyone well).  Food played the leading role in bringing us back to ourselves, leaving us feeling empowered and light.

Lisa focuses on gluten-free, making food accessible and beautiful.  I focus on whole foods, the whole person and choosing foods that nourish. Our philosophies translate so easily and can be applied to anyone.  The power of change in a group can be profound and you've got two passionate women ready and waiting to guide you along through the holidays and beyond.  Between the two of us chances are very high that we've been where you are at some point in our journey.  I am going to break it to you----you. are. not. alone. And because we have a penchant for making things beautiful the swag alone is worth the registration fee.  Just saying.

Lisa, you are dynamic. You are lovely.  Your passion for food and health inspires me.  I am so excited to see where this journey will take us. 

To health, to happiness and to feeling so inspired!
Lacy
