I'm Lyss! I'm a dreamer, doer, optimist, and a creator. I have a noticeable Chicago accent, and a deep love for coffee and sweets. Especially pastries! My favorite things are waking up on a gorgeous Sunday morning with no plans, birds chirping, and making breakfast with my family. I'm a huge fan of sunsets, and love being in nature and out by the water. Walks are my favorite form of "exercise" and I suck at singing but do it anyway, loud and proud.
And traditionally modern
Be fearlessly authentic.

My Word of the Year
Life's too short to be anything but happy...
The secret to having it all
is knowing you already do...
The greatest gift you have to give
is that of your own self-transformation.
- Lao Tzu
