I can’t say I’m anyone special, except to those in my circle. I’m not a famous actress, singer, comedienne, chef, or entrepreneur. You won’t see my face on the big screen or TV. My name is Lauren, and I’m an ordinary woman on this mysterious planet. I’m six months shy from turning sixty and am happily married for almost thirty-two years. I’m also the mother of two amazing adult children, a daughter and son. Out of our litany of pets, we still play home to our ten-year-old chocolate lab mix, Copper. After typing the last few sentences, my life actually appears to be far from ordinary. It feels extraordinary, even with the many hurdles I’ve jumped over to get to this stage in life – a life that is not devoid of struggles.
I devote most of my free time to writing and any aspect in life can provide inspiration, not singling out any one emotion. I hope something that I’ve shared resonates with you, maybe even helps in a small way, brings joy, or serves as reassurance that whatever you’re going through, you are not alone.
I have also published two collections of poetry, New Day, New Dreams and Finding a Balance. More information can be found on the Published Works tab, if you’re interested in purchasing copies.
Your visit is appreciated and I hope to see you again,
Sending love and virtual hugs,
