Hey guys! My name is Lauren. I am a new wife, new mom, new nurse, new North Carolinian and a long-time dreamer.

My husband and I met in high school in our hometown in Maryland and were good friends up until college when we started dating. We got engaged during my last year of nursing school and then married a month after I graduated. Yes, I did plan a wedding during my hardest year of school. Yikes! But it was worth it.

After the wedding we moved to Tennessee and welcomed our first baby girl in May 2018. We are now living in the Triad of North Carolina where I work part-time as a nurse and my husband works as an engineer.

Yes, this blog is named after the theme song of Aladdin’s “A Whole New World”, but more importantly, I gave it this title because I have experienced so many new events in my life in such a short period of time. It seemed very fitting.

A little more about me:

My loves are writing, cooking, reading, drinking a warm cup of coffee in the morning and an iced coffee in the afternoon, raiding the Target dollar spot and capturing everyday moments of my family. My husband and I are huge outdoors fans and enjoy hiking, exploring and taking out our kayaks.

What to expect on the blog:

I created this blog to share my experiences as a new mom so I can help other new mamas make life easier. I also wanted a way to connect with more people and to give myself a creative outlet.

My goal is to post every Wednesday, Friday and share recipes every other Sunday. You should expect to read about mom tips, experiences, recipes, DIY projects and lifestyle.

Life is messy, beautiful and full of adventure. I would love to have you join me in my journey! Please reach out and say hello!
