My husband, Jason, and I on the best day ever

Hi, I’m Lisa, and I’m so glad you’re here.  We may have just met but I feel like we’re kindred spirits.  You’re a wife living in the ‘burbs, most likely a former fun-loving city girl in your younger years, and now, quite surprisingly, loving and embracing the new lifestyle you find yourself leading.

You enjoy cooking and finding new, delicious recipes, so long as they’re not too insanely complex and don’t require you to purchase elusive ingredients you can only buy online. You aspire to build an effortless, classic wardrobe that makes you look and feel amazing from season to season.  You strive to balance the demands on your time between family, friends, work, health, home and the pursuit of happiness.  And at the base of it all, you’re a modern woman who can laugh at the ridiculousness of life and keep it real.

Our mission at Suburban AF is first and foremost to make you laugh and secondarily to deliver useful, relevant content for the modern suburban woman to make life just a little bit easier and more fun.

My beautiful and wonderful late grandmother, Charlotte Becker

Suburban AF started originally as Becker it Yourself, a space to share a love for DIYs inspired by my absolutely amazing late grandmother, Charlotte Becker.  While I still adore DIYs, my interests have grown so far beyond this limited scope to encompass modern life and everything that goes along with it – friends, family, home, DIYs, food, fashion, fitness, health/beauty and the generally hilarious nature that accompanies life in the ‘burbs/life after 30.

Let Suburban A.F. be your guide on this journey to Mastering Mrs. with Style and creating an all-around balanced life worth living and, of course, full of good humor.

Please click here to get in touch with me. Otherwise, go ahead and start with making some DIY Coffee Filter Peonies, whip up a delicious bowl of Best Ever Mac & Cheese or read Tieks: The Real Deal that answers the question of whether the juice is worth the squeeze for these on-trend, comfy flats.

I hope you will love reading Suburban A.F. as much as I enjoy writing and sharing it with you!
