Who's Laura?

Hello friends & Happy August!

I love this time of year. Leaves are starting to change, fall decorations start to emerge, 
school is about to begin, and Starbucks will soon be serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes. 

Lately I've been blessed with the opportunity to meet and mingle with many new bloggers. I realized it has been a very long time since I did a post about myself. I know I'm occasionally posting things here and there, but if you are new, welcome. I want you to know the real me. The real person behind the screen. The person with feelings, fears, and who loves to smile. Laughing is the best medicine, right?

My name is Laura. When I'm not writing my blog, working full time, being mom and 
wife, I'm a lifestyle photographer found here Laura Hernandez Photography.

A few things you would want to know about me if we were friends is that...

- My favorite candy is blank licorice.
- I can't wink.
- I love the colors yellow and grey. Kinda obsessed. 
- My weakness is anything Oreo.
- The only thing I ever order from Starbucks is a tall skinny peppermint mocha.
- I've given birth twice, both labors under an hour long.
- My husband and I rode down the isle of our wedding on a tandem bicycle.
- I'm a horrible speller. {thank goodness for spell check}
- I want to learn to play the piano.
- I have 3 tattoos and I'm working on my 4th.
- I live to one day hear the words of Matthew 25:21 "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

Do you remember what you did on January 1st of this year?
Some of you may, some may not. This is the date my little blog was born.
It took me long enough to just choose the name. A lot of prayer went into this one.
A lot has changed since then. I know its only been half a year but I've grown as a blogger.
I have also seen a lot of changes in the blog world, and not all of them I'm happy with.
I know I can't change others, and I'm not trying to if that's them.
For me, August is a fresh start. Seriously. 
Focusing on my writing again. Things on my heart I want to share and not being to timid to write them.
Major changes to my sponsorship opportunities starting September 1st.
And most important, leading by example.

What are you planning to do to improve the blogging community your part of?

  3. I can't wink either! It's terrible and I always get made fun of ;) maybe that's why I love "winking" via text!!!

  4. I'm amazed that anybody likes black licorice, but you redeemed yourself with Oreos and peppermint mochas!
