meet Me

Hi there! I'm Laura, and I live in 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. While banking is my full time job, my passion is found in daydreaming about the next chapter of my book or my next home project.

The purpose of my blog is to encourage you to involve yourself in all things to improve the human experience—your experience. 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 in overcoming 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.
