OUR Best of Illinois 2010

While Lisa spends this Memorial Day in the office, working on The Best of Illinois event, I want to take a minute to recognize the Hannemaniacs best of Illinois...Lisa of coarse. It's not easy working a full time job, being a Mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and Mom blogger too, but Lisa pulls it off with success across the board.

Lets take a look at our honorees accomplishments shall we... For starters, Lisa is an fantastic mother. W is a happy little man, in no small part due to the love and support that his mother provides for him. There's a lot to learn as a first time Mom, but Lisa strikes an excellent balance of patience and encouragement, helping our little guy learn and explore the world around him. From learning to make his baby food, to getting up with him at 3am when he just won't go back to sleep, Lisa puts William first.

While Lisa is a great mother, she also finds time to be outstanding in her professional life. As an Events Manager Lisa helps pull off two major events a year, with responsibilities ranging from writing the program to selling sponsorships. It was a tough road to get where she is now, but Lisa excels at her work, helping to raise millions of dollars and building outstanding relationships through her hard work and dedication.

Speaking of relationships, how about her huge group of friends and family. Lisa has more friends than just about anyone I know, which says it all. There is no better person to go to for honest advice or a supportive pep talk than Lisa. Lets not forget she's also my wife! Lisa is always there to offer her support, while pushing me forward to be a better person. I couldn't ask for a more outstanding partner.

I could go on and on, but I also know that Lisa is humble. Friends, family, and colleagues alike can attest to what a great person Lisa is to have in your corner, so let's take a minute and recognize the Hannemaniacs Best of Illinois, Lisa Hanneman. Thanks for all that you do and all that you are!
