For a while,
I spent a lot of time meeting new people in the chat rooms, but
now I just keep in touch with a few that I have established close
friendships with as well as those I meet through my site as time goes by.
Now that you know who I am here in the cyber world, I will tell
you about who I am at home. My name is Lisa Ewert and I am 40 years old.
I married my teenage sweetheart Jerry and we have one 24 year old son named
Michael. On June 28, 2006, just one day before my birthday, we were
blessed with a beautiful granddaughter named Destiny Violet (you can
see me holding her below). Oh yeah....I can't forget the smallest members
of my family...our cats Lacey and Rambo!
We live in Wisconsin near the Minnesota border. Yes, we are
cheeseheads and Green Bay Packer fans! I know you are thinking
it, so I am getting that out of the way. We live about
two miles outside of a small town in a quiet, country setting.
We finally found and purchased our dream home in April of 1997
after living in a mobile home in town for almost 11 years. We
truly love it here and hope to stay forever.
I am an Associate Financial Representative contracted through Northwestern Mutual
Financial Network and work for two Financial Rep's in a nearby office. The staff only consists of
the three of us, so my job is very flexible. I do a little bit
of everything, which I will not elaborate on at this point. I
do not want to bore you to death before you check out my poems!
What do I like to do? Well, I love music and listen to it no
matter where I am or what I am doing. I also love to read and
typically go through about 70 books per year. I enjoy
making various craft items such as counted cross stitch and paper
cutting. I also occasionally do some free hand sketches.
For a time I volunteered some of my time with the cats and kittens up for
adoption at one of the local veterinary clinics. It gave them a chance to get out of
a confined space for a time and helped socialize them as well. Unfortunately,
it became very difficult for me to continue on an emotional level. As you will
see throughout my site, I am an animal lover and it is hard for me to see any
animal feeling pain, fear or loneliness. And now that Destiny Violet is a part of our
lives, I spend a good part of my time taking photos, editing and ordering them, and creating photo
books at shutterfly.com.
We moved a lot when I was a child, so I attended approximately
twelve different schools. That fact allowed me to meet many
people and is probably why it usually seems very easy for me
to talk to people that I don't know. My parents, three brothers and
one sister along with their families all live in towns close by, which is nice.
As you already know, I also write poetry when the mood strikes
me and I feel a need to express myself. I have had several of my poems
published but I have not actively pursued that aspect, although I do
get them officially copyrighted through the Library of Congress.
Well, I guess that is enough for now. If you would like to know
something in particular, please feel free to email me at
and I will respond as soon as I can.
