Hi! So glad you’re here!
I’m Lauren- busy mom of 2 beautiful boys, wife of the sweetest guy, baker of yummies, food lover, DIY-er, eternal dreamer… to name a few. Teacher turned work-from-home/stay-at-home mom. Navigating the trenches of motherhood with a constant (cold) cup of coffee in hand, sweet friends and family behind me, and whole lotta Jesus.
I am married to Matt. He’s my college sweetheart and my (life and tech) support. He’s a paramedic turned data geek and currently hustling to get his masters in data analytics. Our oldest is Jake. He changed everything and made us a family of 3 August 2012. Then we welcomed Evan to the chaos in May of 2016. We navigate this little crew we have created messily but with a boat load of love.
I do my best to put God and my dear ones first while fighting the good fight against the illusion of “balance.” Although the day-to-day can feel a bit treacherous, I’m incredibly thankful to have His grace to catch me when I stumble. I am striving to live this abundant life I have been blessed with- searching for the light through the fog, doing my darnedest to appreciate the all the moments, and fiercely committed to always finding the joy.
The joy is where. it’s. at.
I find it in my children’s infectious laughter, a coffee date with a dear friend, a meal shared with neighbors, a day spent soaking up sunshine and warm breezes… simple, peaceful, and full. I hope sharing my recipes and experiences here can spread some of the good stuff around. Try a recipe, share it with your family and friends, and sit back to soak up the joy.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stay awhile.
