A Northeast Iowa nurse who wants more time at home with her boys...

Hey! I'm Kalissa. I'm so excited to meet you.

I'm a self proclaimed self help junkie, registered nurse turned graphic designer, Taylor Swift's biggest fan, recovering workaholic, and small town mama dreaming of working from home by trying my hand for the millionth time at solo-preneurship.

When we were all home with COVID for two weeks, my priorities shifted and I found what I really want to do with my life: be home as much as possible with my boys. Thus, a nursing blog turned family blog branched out into an Etsy shop.

When I'm not working as an ICU/ER nurse, my hobbies include creative writing, cooking, making a fool of myself in my instagram stories, mountain biking, listening to podcasts, roller skating, and hanging out with my family (and there's a lot of family to hang out with!)

I'm the youngest of 5 kids, auntie Sa-Sa to 7 nieces and nephews, and my mom is my bestie. We live just across town from each other. Since my Dad passed away from lung cancer in 2019, we see each other at least every day. You may know my mom as Jo from Jo's Country Junction - that's right, I'm a second generation blogger. If I'm half as cool as my mom is some day, I think that would be my definition of success.

My co-habitants include my two boys Carver (4) and Gannon (2), a naughty beagle named Betsy, and a husband, Craig who's probably at the farm or in a tractor.

While The Pink Shoelaces started out as a nursing blog, it has morphed into everything and anything that comes to my mind including Friedman Fam happenings, dealing with the loss of my father, new recipes, my struggles with mental health and body image, my favorite products and recommendations and our life in Northeast Iowa!

You can follow me on instagram @kalissageorgia and @thepinkshoelaces.

You can check out my blog, thepinkshoelaces.com - I post whenever I get to it, about 3-4 times/week.

I'm most active on my Facebook page, here's a link:
