If this website were a home, this page would be the breakfast nook. Pretend I’m serving you up a warm drink and a fresh pastry, and settle on in!
I’m Laura, and I live in Frederick, Maryland, with my husband, daughter and our sweet, hairy dog. I am the mother of a son and daughter in heaven and a beautiful adopted daughter on earth.
My relationships hold the strongest weight in my heart, particularly the one I share with God. My grief over the past few years has shaken my faith and caused me great sorrow, confusion and anger, but ultimately I choose to believe my God is good and loving even when my circumstances are not good and don't feel loving.
As my life is changing, so will this corner of the Internet. I hope to use this space to share ALL aspects of myself — a woman, a wife, a mourner, a rejoicer, a new mom, a friend, a working mother, a Christian, a reader, a traveler, a cook, a sometimes-exerciser... you get the picture! My blog is not meant to be the place you go to for all the answers. It is not a highlight reel of my perfect life. (HA.) It's simply me, in word form.
A few things I love: my forever arm candy, my pup, my books and my beautiful gift from God!
