about the girl

Hi there! My name is Lauren (loh-ren) and welcome to my website! I'm an on again off again writer with a little talent and a lot of procrastination. I haven't been the most consistent blogger in the past, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy it every once in a while. I've been blogging since 2008 and writing since I was like zero probably. When I was little, I wanted to be a novelist. When I was older I wanted to be a journalist. Now that I'm 25 and "all grown up" with a family, I don't really want to do either of those things. However, I think that writing is important and I want to maintain the skills I've acquired, and share my voice and opinions regardless of whether or not anyone reads it. 

I grew up in Minnesota, but I've spent most of my life now in Utah. I've lived overseas in Tahiti as a Mission President's daughter and in Japan as a missionary. I also did a study abroad in Jerusalem for three months. I love to travel and I love new experiences. I'm a current BYU student where I've spent time as a reporter for the BYU Universe. 

I am also a second degree black belt in Shin Toshi Karate and I hope to open my own karate school in the next few years. This is one of my favorite hobbies along with watching movies and TV shows, drinking Sodalicious, running and fitness, and journaling. 

I am married to an amazing man named Sam and we have a sweet angel baby named Matthew Jay. I love my perfect little family and they are my inspiration in everything. 

I love to write about family, Utah, planning/journaling, experiences, and especially movies. I have a separate blog for that, and if you're into that kind of thing, hit up somepeoplelikemovies.blogspot.com 

Thanks for stopping by! If you have questions, just email me at lauren[dot]1723[at]gmail[dot]com
