Goals + Dreams Hello January!

Ah, it’s that lovely time of year when we get a fresh start to complete the goals and dreams we didn’t get around to the previous year.  Well last year around this time, I defined my new year with one word: purpose.  My goal was to better define my purpose and myself.  This past year, there have been bigs changes in my life… I mean I got married and that’s a big deal and change!!  So for once, I feel like I actually accomplished one of my new year resolutions, and that’s something worth celebrating!

This year instead of making a one word I actually made a list of goals, and so I need you to help keep me accountable!  That way this time next year, I’ll be able to say I accomplished them again!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
