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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Plant Care 101 For The Vegetationally Challenged

Let’s get one thing out of the way immediately.  Plants and I are historically not friends.

When I was about 7 or 8 my mom said I could have my own little garden in our yard.  I was thrilled!  Pretty flowers that I got to pick all by myself and none of those ugly orange marigolds?  I was SO in.  I happily picked out the pinkest flowers I could find at the nursery and went home with […]

The Secret To Soft Smooth Skin (Hint: It’s a Brush)

Okay, okay, hold the phone.  A brush is supposed to make my skin smooth and fresh? (Yes.)  You mean like, a hair brush? (No.)  I know, I know.  It all sounds a little crazy when you first hear about it, but trust me, once you’ve tried it, you’ll never want to go back.

Welcome to the dry brush life.  And if you aren’t dry brushing yet or have never even heard of it, don’t you worry!  I’ve […]
