meet Me

Hi there! I'm Laura, and I live in charming Charleston, SC with my beautiful family-Jared, my husband, and our precious little mini monster, Carraway. 


I graduated with a Master's degree in Social Sciences from The Citadel with coursework focus on Intelligence Analysis, which led me to a career in banking and compliance, but that is just my day job. My passion is family, writing, and life—specifically, living a happy, fulfilled life. On the weekends I can be found daydreaming about the next chapter of my book or working on my next home project. Late at night you might find me obsessively researching current events. I love puzzles…


My heart lives in the country—under the stars, catching lightning bugs, and listening to the frogs and crickets.


The purpose of my blog is to encourage you to live your best life. Love your space, get lost in a book, and love where you are in your life, even among the chaos. Those challenges keep life interesting. Your journey to overcome them is what makes your life meaningful. So, do you. Don’t miss out on your story.

What you think, you become.
What you feel, you attract.
What you imagine, you create.
— Buddah

Life is art. Create a story you love.


I've had a lifetime goal of writing a fiction novel. Guess what? I did it! I put my dreams on paper, made a tiny bit of sense of it, and published Sons of God, Daughters of Men in January 2018.
