From Under a Palm Tree is a lifestyle blog. It comes from the group effort of a family of women wanting to expand their lives beyond everyday horizons. We are a 50+ year old mom and three daughters who are a bit spread apart in age.
We’re a close knit group who spends time together outside of our family-run business — always planning a weekend event or just a Wednesday night dinner. We’re all at different points in our lives and have different points of view.
Lisa has more time on her hands for new goals and projects as she becomes an empty nester; Meagan is a thirty-something wife and new mom; Christina is newly engaged and a recent college grad navigating her way into the world; and the youngest is a senior in high school… so she does what high schoolers do!
Another thing we girls share is PKD (polycystic kidney disease), a disease that may have minimal impact on our lives or it may cause renal failure like it did for Lisa in 2013 when she had a kidney transplant. Life is too short not to do all the things you want to do or have all the adventures you want to have. We wanted to write this blog together to enjoy and share it with all of you.
There’s something here for everyone: wellness, home and family, parenting, DIY projects, party and event planning, cooking, beauty tutorials, and recommendations.
**It’s all here!!!
Meet the Bloggers!
Lisa is a mother of three lovely young women and is a new grandmother to a baby boy! She has been married to her high school sweetheart for more than thirty years. Lisa is originally from Dearborn Heights, Michigan, but has lived in the Tampa Bay area since 1984. Running a small business for over 25 years and raising a family has made for a busy, busy life with many ups and downs; it’s definitely been an adventure.
Lisa’s always involved in one project or another whether it’s work related or serving her community. She also recently went back to school to finish her bachelor’s degree in American Studies. Lisa tries to make every day a good day—that means learning something new, practicing kindness, and enjoying the present moment.
Meagan is in her early thirties and has has been married for seven years and is a proud new mom, happily navigating her way through the toddler years. She met her husband 18 years ago in high school; they got married 11 years later after graduating from the University of South Florida. Meagan currently helps run a family business with her parents and sister, while blogging about her life and taking care of her two year old son full time (at work)!
When she isn’t chasing her son around and fishing dog food from his mouth, she enjoys spending time with her family on a beach anywhere. She also loves decorating and organizing her home, delving into fun DIY projects, bargain shopping, and eating at unique restaurants. She also loves Barbecue anything and a good show or movie on Netflix.
Christina is a newly engaged twenty-something living with her fiance and two beagles. After graduating college with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management she went onto work in the corporate business world. But she recently left to work with family and blog about her life. Now working gives her the unique opportunity to explore her more artistic and creative side. Painting, DIY-ing , and photography are just some of her artistic passions.
Christina is also a vegetarian who enjoys the Florida night life, shopping/bargain hunting, road trips and live music. She especially loves the annual trips to see the Dave Matthews Band all over the country. This year she plans more than a road trip as she plans her wedding and embarks upon her soon-to-be married life. Exciting things are happening!
