Hi I'm Lauren!  Foodie, DIY enthusiast, and travel lover.

I married my high school sweetheart Kevin on December 11, 2010 in Powhatan, Virginia.

 And he went and got our wedding featured on Style Me Pretty (dream come true)!

Then I moved to Boston from Virginia to be with him after 7 years of long distance.  Here you'll find adventures in food, love, travel, home decor, style, and how two southerners are starting their lives together in the Northeast! Welcome to the party!

  3. Hi Lauren!
    I found your blog through Brooklyn Jolley! I am starting a new blogging project that you might be interested in! The basic premise is that you will spend $10.00-$15.00 putting together a pretty little package full of cute stuff and send it to another blogger, ideally someone that isn't from where you are or someone you don't know very well, then you get one back from another blogger! It's kind of like pen pal on steroids. Kind of like a voxbox, only a lot more personal and you will make a new friend or network pal from the exchange.
    For example, I would maybe put a package of my favorite lip gloss, my favorite candy, something from Maryland, some pretty pencils or sticky notes or a little journal. Include a note, send it off! Then the next few weeks I would get something back.
    If you are interested, email me at riley.justesen@gmail.com and let's get the party started!

    I am for sure following your blog, I live in MD and frequent trips to Boston all the time, it's my favorite place to be!
