About Laurie

Hi! It’s so nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by and taking a minute to get to know me.

I’m a Wife | Mom | Blogger | and I also work a full-time job outside the home. My family consists of some amazing children, a son, two daughters, one miniature rat terrier, and one terrific husband. My husband and I eloped on January 1, 2015 so I guess you can say I am also a newlywed! And if you hadn’t already guessed, a step-mom.

I can be goofy | funny | serious | sensitive | supportive | sarcastic | motivated | and lazy and probably many other adjectives that I can’t seem to think of right now. But that’s probably enough to give you an idea of how crazy this blog will likely get.


My son is away at college as is my step-daughter and my daughter will be off to college next year so I will soon have an empty nest. Currently, because my daughter has one year of high school remaining, my husband and I live in different states. We get to see each other every couple of weeks. Even though we are ready to reside under one roof, my daughter’s last year of high school takes precedence over our wants right now. We are making the most of it and enjoying house hunting!

So as you can see, there are many topics for me to write about and this just scratches the surface. I hope you will take a walk along the trail and share in this journey. Please hop over to the start here page to read more on what you will find on the blog and you’ll get to know me even better.
