Hi there, I am so happy you are here! My name is Lauren, I’m the curator of this here place. 

I am a California native with a passion for creating and community. For as long as I can remember I have been styling all the things, planning parties, taking pictures, creating my own decorations, making pretty food and of course, writing. Apart from creating, I obviously, love to share especially with friends and family – which is how this blog originated. 

Beyond the blog, I am the wife to an incredibly awesome husband that I adore, and Mama-bear to our two beautiful children, Lyla and Leo. Living nearly 3,000 miles away from home in Florida, this blog became a way for me to share my journey through motherhood as a young first-time mom and newlywed. This blog has since grown to be a happy place where readers can find inspiration, family, styling tips, yummy recipes, adventure and so much more. 

I hope you take a look around and join us on our crazy, magical adventure!

Please note: This is a for-profit blog. This blog allows me to pay bills and spend more time with my little family. From time to time, there will be affiliate links on items I post about, where I will make a tiny fee from sales purchased through those links, but this will not change or increase the cost of your purchase. On occasion, there will be a paid sponsored post, giveaway, or review, but my personal integrity, as well as the integrity of my site, will always come first. You will only see things that we truly love, would buy, or that fit our lifestyle. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
