Hey, I’m Lauren and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by my little space here on the internet! I want to share with you a bit about myself.
I am a mom of one and lover of all things antique, homemade, natural and old fashioned. Born and raised in South Carolina, I can still say that is my home and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I grew up in a home where there was always a home cooked meal on the stove and always something inviting in the oven. Homebody could be a another easy term to describe me. That is where you can find me most of the time. At home. I love caring for my home and finding new ways to decorate, new recipes to whip up, getting creative, and trying out DIYs. I have a special interest in a healthy home that promotes wellness as well. From Kombucha brewing to a fridge full of veggies and local meats. You can tell wholesome eating and health is very important to me.
I purchased my first home as a single mom in 2019 and was determined right away to create a place where my son and I enjoyed being. Creating that same homey environment I grew up in was a must for me. It makes sense to say that aspect of my life really contributed to me having a great childhood, and I wanted to recreate that for him. I hope to inspire other women in creating homes for their families. I want them to know it’s not hard and it’s truly very rewarding. As a single mom on a low budget, I hope to show you anyone can do it. By sharing the things I love, I hope to inspire, give hope, and encourage. Everyone’s house has the potential to be a home that is beautiful, comfortable and functional, that is my belief.
Why Did I Start a Blog?
As you read above, homemaking is very important to me and I want to inspire, but I also really needed a creative outlet. Being a creative type, this blog gives me that outlet I needed to express my interests and creativity, while others are benefiting. It just made sense!
