Our Bodies. Our Families. Our Lives. We all have stories we should share. We're more alike than we know.

About

Bio: Lisa Batten Kunkleman is the mother of twenty-year-old triplets and her original model, a married twenty-seven-year-old daughter. Lisa and her husband Dan, now second year empty-nesters, live on a farm tucked away near Charlotte, NC. Surprisingly, they still see their four college students on a pretty regular basis and are active parents burning up the road now. A former middle school counselor turned writer, Lisa is also a closet genealogist and preserver of stories, who looks for the humor in life. She spends a great deal of time letting her dogs in and out of the house. Lisa has collected stories throughout the years, from back before she developed stretch marks, to the present, when she's embracing age spots, gray hair, and wrinkles. Lisa hopes that her stories will provide entertainment, as well as information for folks in that situation called life. Lisa also hopes you enjoy this blog enough that you might consider recording your own day-to-day life. It's all life stories.

  2. Hi Lisaโ€“โ€“ Diana brought me here, and I’m happy she did! I’m currently pursuing a career in school counseling and also love to write. In an ideal world, I’ll find a way to combine the two more often than not. It sounds like you did. I enjoyed your writing, here! RJ

    • I’m so glad you came over to check out my site. Being a school counselor gives you lots of fodder for writing, confidentiality considered always of course. I’ve met lots of folks who spurred thoughts of characters, good and bad. I hope you can make it all work without too much stress. Your job is a stressful one. For me, writing, especially with a little humor was a perfect outlet. Me time. Let me know how it all goes. Lisa

  3. Hello Lisa I love the aesthetics of your blog, and this “about” intrigues me, I’ve travelled high and wide but never been to North Carolina, which in my imagination is the quintessence of non-urban USA ๐Ÿ™‚ Bringing up triplets must have been an experience! Thanks for following my blog, I’m considering some changes and can use all comments. I’ll be dropping in here too…

    • Hi Bea. Thanks for coming by. Yes, NC gets a rough rap through the news and TV shows that make us look entirely rural even to the point of being uneducated and goofy. Not so. It’s a beautiful state worth visiting from the mountains to the ocean. We are a large state filled with a wealth of nature and lovely cities to experience. Please, swing by NC if you are ever in the area. Thanks for the compliment about the aesthetics of my blog. We are blessed with beauty right outside our door, thanks to my husband’s family buying this land a half century ago. Our children have grown up in the country just outside the city, Charlotte. The best of both worlds. Triplets plus an older daughter has been an exhausting, exhilarating joy and provided great amounts of fodder for stories and laughter. I look forward to following your blog. Write on! Lisa

  4. Hi Lisa! First, thanks for following my blog. I’m so glad you found it because that led me here to you. It seems we have much in common, such as a love of writing, humor, country living and ~ oh, yes ~ stretch marks and age spots. I’m looking forward to following your great-looking blog.

  7. Hi Lisa,
    It’s so nice to find another Carolina Writer in this massive blogosphere! My youngest daughter lived in Charlotte after her graduation from College of Charleston, and I visited often. She now resides in Washington DC and although I can’t get there as often, I still manage at least twice a year. I’m thrilled you took a stroll through my cow pasture. Welcome to the fence jumpers. I look forward to hearing more from you and BTW, love your blog.@sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles

    • I look forward to reading lots from you. Thanks for the kind words. It’s 2:20 am here and I’m gonna go to bed and appreciate my plumbing and electricity and mattress thinking about you. It’s amazing what you can do without when you decide to. Sleep well whenever your bedtime is in your time zone.

  13. My sister bought a cabin, well it’s bigger than a cabin, but we call it a cabin at Lake Lure, are you familiar with that area? She lives in Florida right is about to retire in 3 weeks, is going on a year long tour of the waterways throughout the country. She bought a boat that you can live on to do this and then she plans on selling it and living in Lake Lure. I plan to go vacation there with her when she comes back Summer of 18. Love your sense of humor!! Look forward to reading more of your posts. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Aw. Thanks. Yes I know about Lake Lure. It’s in the western part of the state on the way to two of our kids college. Western Carolina University. It’s beautiful over there. We’re in Charlotte about three hours away. Year of waterways. That’s exciting.
