A Hint At What’s To Come

It has been nearly 18 months since I made a drastic career change, leaving the television business after 16 years to go off on my own.  It’s been a crazy, scary, and exciting year and a half, but one that lacked a real focus when I first began.

A few months ago, I started to take stock in what it was I was doing with my platform, and the different ways I was choosing to show up […]

Love Lessons: Ghostbusters

This post is part of a series about my own personal dating experiences before I met and married Marc.  I may be a newlywed now, but just a few years ago I never thought I would be anything but single, and I hated it.  When I was struggling I didn’t feel like there was anyone who could truly understand.  I was single, I didn’t want to be single, but I also wanted to be happy […]

Mexico Diary

Last week Marc and I celebrated our one-year anniversary back where our marriage began, in Mexico on the shores of Playa Mujeres.  Our wedding was at Finest Playa Mujeres but for our anniversary we chose to stay just down the beach at the sister resort Beloved.  Beloved is a smaller boutique adults-only experience and it was our second time staying at this resort.

Clearly, we have a special place in our hearts for Playa Mujeres!

It was just […]

After One Year Of Marriage, A Letter To My Younger Self

Dear 2014 Laura,

You don’t know me yet but I’m exactly where you wish you were right now. And I know not being here yet is freaking you out.

You have quite a year ahead of you. In six months, you turn 35 and that is going to mess with your mind more than any birthday has before. You will question everything about yourself and your character. And why? Because you will continue to be single. And […]

My Therapy Story

Last year on World Mental Health Day I posted on Instagram an honest look into my experience with therapy and depression.  The responses were mostly positive with some even sharing their own personal stories as well.  But there were also a handful of well-meaning responses that were not so helpful.

I don’t think you need a therapist… I could pray for you. As far as I’m concerned you’re okay.  I’m just trying to boost your confidence.

Please don’t […]

What I’ve Been Wearing Lately

I used to think I had to wear certain colors and styles to fit in to my environment.  Not necessarily to blend in, but to fall in line with the norm.  When I was in TV that meant bright colors that stood out on camera.  But if I had two dresses that were a similar hue then I couldn’t wear them on back-to-back days because, well, because we just don’t do that!

The truth is there weren’t […]
