My name is Laura Kate and Lady is my dog! I married my high school sweetheart in September of 2014 and started this blog in October of 2014! My husband is full time National Guard, which means he’s not just a “weekend warrior”. Actually we’re apart more than the average couple but we’re more fortunate than a normal military couple as we don’t have to move around the country. We found Lady about 3 months before we got married and she became my companion for when my husband was away from home! She’s a sassy and wild dog who loves everyone she meets! I started this blog to have a creative outlet from a desk job but in November 2016 we welcomed our baby girl, Cora Beth, into the world and I’m now a stay at home mom! Being her mom is my absolute favorite thing, I didn’t know my heart could feel love like that.
My original intention for this blog was to be a home décor blog but I’m working on getting over some insecurities of mine to be able to actually show y’all our home. I made some grave décor decisions when we first moved in and I’m slowly in the process of undoing them. I’m still trying to find my bearings in decorating as well! And of course it would all be a whole lot easier if money was no object but let’s be real, it is. There’s been a few posts of our home but while I’m working up the courage to show you more you’ll find posts of some DIYs & crafting, a little about my pregnancy, about being a mom and from time to time maybe a recipe or my thoughts on life in general. I love to find a good deal, paint (both furniture and canvases, I’m better at furniture though) and I like to make art prints. I also love coffee and going on a walk with a friend and I really love Jesus and the wonderful life He gives.
I hope you’ll find encouragement in mamahood and inspiration for your home here! I love making new friends so be sure to say hi! And thanks for hanging out in my little corner of the internet!
