Lisa Garland

I’m a PR gal living in Dallas with my husband of 6 years and our newest addition, Cohen (10/2015). I took a year off after graduating from the University of North Texas to teach English at an orphanage in Mexico and now work for the Four Seasons in Las Colinas. We’ve spent the past year renovating our home and continue to find a new projects as soon as we’ve completed one. Thank you, Pinterest! I’m a strong believer in Jesus, grace, and dessert after every meal. You can find me doing yoga, spending time with my large family, trying new local foodie spots and traveling as often as possible.

The Sweetest Gifts for a New Mom

Tips for Surviving RSV
