Oh hey there.
Sooooo….is this the part where I tell you how much I like coffee and the mountains and Ray Lamontagne, and all the other *quirky-yet-endearing* things about me that make you go, “Man, this girl is the coolest and I want her life because it is so full of awesome” and then you read all about me and realize I don’t have anything figured out ever?
LOL no but really.
I’m Laura: hopeless sinner made alive by a great God, wife to Daniel, dog mom to Fitz, HR benefits advocate, “New Girl” aficionado, bacon lover, and, against all odds, blogger! (Currently, I kind of hate coffee, but maybe someday I’ll get my act together and find out what I’ve been missing.) This blog was nothing more than a daydream for nearly three years, but I finally took the plunge. The idea was born out of a combination of my love for writing and my passion for engaging other people in real conversations about things that matter. (And also because I need an outlet for all the awkward things I do because I am just weird, and those funny things should be documented to embarrass my future children.) I like food, married life, the Gospel, college ministry, Netflix, traveling, and especially Nutella, and I’ll write about all of it.
This is Fitz. I know you were wondering. :)
Here’s what I want this space to be:
Transparent. Brave. Imperfect. Barefaced. Inspiring. Genuine. Fun.
I don’t have life figured out. But there’s something kind of great about that, yeah? Life is just better when you quit the charade and embrace the beautiful, messy, glorious chaos that is your life. (See what I did there? It’s all coming together, it’s fine. *taps finger to head*)
I will talk about God. Like, a lot.
I really like my husband and I’ll write about him a lot too.
If and when I have kids, I will probably like them too and post about them wayyyyyy too much. I already know it’ll happen.
And finally, photography is not my spiritual gift; ergo, most of my pictures will be iPhone photos…….. #sorrynotsorry.
If you still want to know a little more about me, here’s my first two blog posts, Taking the Plunge and A Cockroach Murder + Friday Introductions – they’ll give you a little taste of my weirdness. Thanks for checking out my little corner of the world! Make my day and email me sometime – I can’t wait to get to know you! ♥
