Welcome to Life from the Lilie Pad! I am Kristen, a wife to my wonderful husband, John, and mom to 4 year-old Micah and 1 year-old Madison. We also have an 8 year-old Golden Retriever/Lab mix, Lilie. I work full-time outside of the home in Human Resources. I am fortunate enough to work in a corporate environment that allows me to work 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday. I work very few night or weekend hours. Even so, I find there are many challenges with working full-time and trying to manage a home. Join me as I work through them and try to find solutions that allow me to enjoy my family and life as much as I can!
