Hello! I’m Laura.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am a mother, a lawyer, a cradle Catholic Christian.   You can read more assorted facts about me in this post.  I am married to my college sweetheart, Patrick.


We are huh-larious together.

We have two children: Girl 1 (five years old) and Girl 2 (two years old).

Processed with VSCOcam

We live in a sweet little house in a little town in the Southern United States.

I do some legal work from home on a very part-time basis.  Mostly I am a stay at home mom.

This blog is where I write for fun.  I blog about whatever happens to be on my mind: mainly books and my quest to find style.  Oh yeah, and kids.

(We used to follow the Perfect Health Diet.  We don’t anymore, but you can still find all my posts on the subject here, if you’re interested in that.)

I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say! I would love to read your comments.

  1. I found a Catholic mom lawyer!?? I thought we didn’t exist!!! It’s like I found a unicorn!

    Also, hi, lets pretend I didn’t call you a mythical creature before getting to know you…

    • Ha! I’ve been called much worse. ;). Yes, catholic lawyer moms are a rare breed ( esp the blogging variety). Anyway thanks so much for coming by to say hi. There’s more I’d love to chat with you about so I’ll try to send you an email ASAP.

  2. Martha and Laura – I too am a Catholic mom lawyer! I’m echoing Martha’s thoughts, have I found the place where we’re all hidden?? I’d love to chat with both of you. 🙂

  3. Loved the video!! I’m blazing new trails in my life by dating for the first time – at 23 years old! (Not that opportunity never presented itself before now… The RIGHT opportunity just didn’t!) Anyway, I loved the perspective! Thanks for sharing that!

  4. Hi Laura! Aunt Rosey told me about your blog and I love it! I especially like the “what I wore” posts. I like your fashion and agree with you that the book Color Me Beautiful is a must read. 🙂 I showed the video above to Earl and we both got a kick out of it. Hope you are all well.

  5. Just found you through Grace’s blog… I am also Team Catholic Lawyer! (I have yet to tackle the mom part, but I’m stiiiiiill excited enough to comment.) Instant blog follower. Just like that.

  6. That video is hu-larious so I’m assuming you and you’re husband are at least as entertaining together, right?

    And those kid pics are cu-ute!


  7. Not a Catholic lawyer but a Catholic law-school dropout- Ohio State, one year. 🙂 Found your blog because I was searching for how to feel less frumpy, staying at home with a 18 month old in a town with a Kohl’s, a Target, and several places which only carry items in camo or “hunter’s orange,” 3 hours from the nearest mall, where we are buried in snow 6 months of the year (i.e. no ballet flats around here!) I have become an online shopping champion! You are an excellent writer. Very much enjoy your blog.
