My name is Alissa,

Photo Cred: my cousin

You might be wondering about the title of this blog. It’s quite simple, really. My childhood friend would always call me Lisser, and that eventually led to being called “Lizard.” Not only did this stick, but it encompassed my personality. For as long as I can remember, animals have always been my passion, and if you put them alongside books, you’ve created the best possible scenario.

That being said, welcome to my “Coop.” I am writing this blog for readers, animal-lovers, nature enthusiasts, and those interested in hearing my thoughts/perspectives on life, wherever you may be. The time I spend on here will mostly be dedicated to book reviews, my faith, insights on the everyday, animal adventures, poetry, talking about my sweet husband, and me gawking over beautiful landscapes or tree bark. I know, I’m excited too.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy your time here!

XO – Lizard
