A new face...

"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment." - Jane Austen

In real life, things don't happen as rapidly as Ms. Austen implied...but at times it can certainly feel like they do!

My name is Laura, and I am very excited to join with the lovely ladies of So Maybe Mom Was Right to provide a window into my world.

I am...a woman. A wife. A mom. A daughter. A sister. A friend. Evolving.

At 26 going on 27, I am married to a wonderful man, Daniel; we recently celebrated our second wedding anniversary. In January we were blessed with the arrival of a son - Dylan Logan. As if that wasn't enough to fill the walls of our quirky old house, we also share space with a spastic beagle/Jack Russell mix and three cats collectively known as "the boys." I work part-time in the education field, and full-time in the wife/mom field. I was born in the Midwest, but grew up in the South. I have an old fashioned foundation, with some moderate bricks and mortar.

I family, my friends, being a mom, the Florida Gators, all most things organic and green, literature - specifically British and Childrens', ice cream, my faith, the internet, my iPhone (how others or myself made it through the day without one I'll never know!!), Page Six, reality TV, gerber daisies, pedicures, chocolate truffle flavored coffee with two Splenda and a dash of cream, Autumn, Christmas cookies, painting, Bob Dylan, van Gogh, bistros, painting, cities where you can use your own two feet as transportation, a perfectly made fire in winter, fresh herbs, anything pumpkin or coconut flavored, Italy, libraries, learning to cook, satire, heels.

I despise...exercise, apple juice, the cotton in medicine bottles, decaf, insincerity, mayonnaise, harsh chemicals and byproducts, pork, the color purple, injustice, not being perfect at everything.

I'm not a green nut or tree hugger. I'm not Susie Homemaker. I'm not perfect. The battle is that I try to be.

Hello, my name is Laura. I am a blogger and I hope you'll join me on this new adventure...


  1. Welcome Laura!

    I'm with you on Mayonnaise (ugh!) and big cities (adore)! My husband and I went to NYC in March and I would move there on a moments notice if I could. My favorite part was all the museums (the MET was full of Van Gogh!).

    --Did you know Bob Dylan is coming to the O'Dome next month?

  2. Wow. That was probably the best introduction ever! Welcome! I'm excited to see what you can share with us, especially since you're a relatively new mom and I'm about to be one ( six months or so!).

  3. Hello to you both!! Happy to be here!

    Meg... I have never been to NYC! Pathetic but true. My hubby constantly talks about the MET and it always makes me jealous. A good friend recently moved there and goes ALL the time. Jeals for sure!

    teachergirl... Thanks for the compliment!I enjoy your posts, too. And welcome to the magic of motherhood. It's amazing, and makes you a better and stronger person.

  4. I didn't know there was anyone in the universe who didn't like apple juice! =)
