Marisa was born and bred in the Toledo area and spent most of her life in Point Place. She is a SAHM and currently resides in Waterville with her husband, Josh, four kids, Emma, Lily, Jack, and Wyat, and two dogs, Molly and Luckie. She is a self proclaimed Golden Girls, Disney, and organizational junkie. You can often find Marisa sipping a good cup of coffee (or wine), reading, watching terrible reality TV or Lifetime movies, or Pinterest dreaming. She loves to travel, online shop, and has spent her life perfecting her well-crafted use of sarcasm. Marisa finds she gets by most days with a whole lot of Jesus and coffee and that well-placed sarcasm. You can follow along with her misadventures and organized chaos @risasue040582.
