Hello there! I’m Lauren, 30-something mommy to Harper and Ezra and wife to Scott. We live in Salt Lake City, Utah, and no: we are not Mormon.
This blog has evolved over the years – it’s been a place for me to vent frustrations, to document my crafty endeavors, to share photos of my family, to connect with other moms and to market my knitting and sewing patterns. When I lived in Colorado, people used to say, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a couple hours. It will change.” I guess you could say that, too, about my blog.
Colorado? Yep. I have been fortunate enough to live in two of what I consider to be the most beautiful states in the US. I grew up in Alabama (that’s not one of them, although it can be quite nice), and I moved to Aspen after graduating from the University of Alabama. From there, it was Denver for graduate school, and then, back to Aspen. A couple years went by, and I got bored. (See? I told you, I’m fickle!) Long story short, I randomly moved to Salt Lake City and only looked back once or twice.
Within a couple months of moving, I met my now-husband, Scott, at the rock climbing gym. After a couple years of dating, we got married in the Phang Nga province of Thailand. Our daughter, Harper, was born 19 months later.
Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom, I worked in advertising and real estate. I have a master’s degree in advertising which comes in quite handy in late-night discussions about media bias and politics. These days I spend most of my time looking after Harper, but I try to fill the space in-between with knitting, sewing and other creative endeavors.
My cute little family (minus Ezra – I need a new pic!):
