About Lauren

I started this blog back in 2009 right after getting married to my high school sweetheart, Joe. We had just moved into our tiny but sweet home that Joe majorly renovated and I was having fun creating all kinds of new healthy meals in that little kitchen. Our home has ย expanded a bit, and so has our family. In February 2012 we were blessed to welcome our sweet baby Cecelia. I still occasionally pop over here to share—mostly pictures and stories of our beautiful girl, a few recipes, what I’m learning, and hopefully point to the one true God who has blessed us beyond what we deserve. Hope you enjoy what you find here!
