About Me

Hey! I’m Laura, a twenty-something woman, wife, and mom. I write about parenthood, relationships, organization, and simple living.

Actually, I hate being called a woman- it feels too old- but I’m more than just a wife and a mom, I’m a person too! I love chilly weather, catchy music, cozy spaces, comfort food and close-knit family.


While I hate being called a “woman”, I love being called a wife! My husband, Kenny, is my favorite person in the world. If you don’t know Kenny, he is like a big loving teddy bear. People are always surprised to see that he has piercings (ear piercings, nothing too crazy!) and tattoos because he’s such a softie. He’s a musician and loves his guitars only just slightly more than he loves me.

I write a lot about relationships because navigating relationships is one of my favorite experiences in life, good and bad. A huge part of being a wife is trying to make our marriage as good as it can be! Don’t get me wrong, our relationship isn’t perfect at all. You’ll see..

I became a mom officially on Nov 15, 2017 when my son Malcolm was born. (You can read his birth story here). I will be the absolute FIRST person to admit that I hated being pregnant. HATED. But I love being a mom even more than I thought I would. Our little guy has a super strong personality and charms the pants of everybody he meets. If you hate baby picture, unfollow me on Instagram immediately because that’s basically all I post these days. I write about motherhood more than any other topic and did a 5 part series on the important parenthood decisions we made during my pregnancy, which you can read here! (Scroll down for more pics of Malcolm!)



I started this blog for many reasons, but the one thing that ties it all together is honesty. What you will find here is a collection of posts about my life, my current condition in the most candid presentation possible. Sometimes they will be encouraging, sometimes helpful, sometimes messy, and sometimes they won’t resonate with you at all! That’s okay. I will offer an honest and open look at where I am in my life- my struggles and my accomplishments, pregnancy and birth updates, organization tips and tricks, and musings and rantings on relationships.
