Reesa Lewandowski on MommaLew.com

Reesa Lewandowski, founder of MommaLew.com, joined us in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her site.

About six years ago, Lewandowski was a new stay at home mom who was looking for something to occupy her time. So, she started her blog.

“Over the last couple years, I’ve transformed it more into a food and lifestyle blog, and focused more on the New Jersey area,” she says.  “I love highlighting local places to go with the family, and attractions or events.”

When it comes to food, her main goal is to make things easy and affordable for families. “Gourmet meals that aren’t over the top,” she says.

So, what’s next? Lewandowski says that she is trying to focus a little more on herself, and on moving forward with her photography.
