Are you ready to hang out with me and have some fun while we learn, laugh and make our homes lovely places to be? I can’t wait! I’m so glad you’re here and I hope you’ll visit often!
First things first, I thought you might want to know why I wanted to be a blogger…
One of the scariest things to me about becoming a blogger is really putting yourself out there. The online world can be wonderful, supportive and exciting…and cruel, critical and harsh. I really thought about this blogging thing, as in, thought about it for 2 years!
Did I have anything relevant or inspiring to share?
Does the world really need another home & family blogger?
In the end, I decided to go for it and here I am!
Making home a beautiful, joyful, safe place is my livelihood and my passion. I’ve learned more than a few things along the way that will be helpful to you and I’m excited to share. If there’s something you want me to post about, just let me know and I’m happy to oblige if I can.
Here’s the scoop:
I plan to share incredibly delicious recipes, test-tasted by family and friends. Some will be quick and easy; some might take some time, but will be well worth it. We eat pretty healthy in our home, but we also love our sweets!
Since family is #1 to me, I’ll give you great ideas of how to strengthen your family through traditions, fun family night activities, parenting tips that have worked for me and more.
I will state here and now, I am not a crafter. I repeat, I am not a crafter. Don’t expect cutesy little crafts for every season and whim. But….
We are do-it-yourself-ers in our home and I’ll happily share how-to’s on our awesome finished projects.
I’ll also include some cheap and simple decorating ideas to spruce things up.
Finally, my LDS faith is my way of life. I am a Christian. I won’t be preachy, but I will share some things here and there related to that. You can expect some posts about prayer, teaching children about faith, fun activity ideas related to faith and more.
Many bloggers refrain from sharing personal posts with their readers. I’m not one of those bloggers! This is not going to be a “Diary of Lauren’s Daily Life”, but I will share things with you that I feel could help inspire you, cheer you or even prevent you from making a similar mistake. I’ve learned so much from reading my favorite bloggers stories and I want to pay that forward to you.t
I’ll post every Monday, Thursday and Friday.
