HFM: What is your favorite part of the day with your kids?
LL: Since I work during the day, I have limited time with my children after I get home…I wish there were more hours in the day but that being said, I enjoy the time we spend together laying in bed sharing about our day, reading books, and just the time we snuggle and say our prayers before turning in for the night.
HFM: How do you balance work and home life?
LL: It’s all about maximizing my time and staying organized. I have a calendar book (yes book! – I’ve tried the calendar apps but have yet to find something easier than putting pen to paper) that helps me schedule the things I have to do for my kids’ activities, their school events, and my work commitments. Any extra time is left to do things together as a family. I’ve realized now more than anything the importance of balancing work and family life and how rewarding it is to be able to spend more time with my kids.
HFM: Favorite “go-to” meal for the family?
LL: We can do breakfast food anytime of the day… eggs, pancakes, bacon, oatmeal, and even dumplings. When we do go out to eat, my kids love going to our neighborhood hibachi restaurant. The food is great and the entertainment is fun.
HFM: Favorite weekend outing with the family?
LL: We love the outdoors and visiting different places. My husband loves to drive so road trips are always a fun outing for us. The kids love the beach and everything that comes with it…fishing, playing in the sand, crabbing, getting their hands dirty! Camping and hiking are in our near future for a family trip…
