hello world, it’s me Lauren.

‘ello! 

(yes I am trying to pretend I am British still, sorry some things will never change…)

Well twenty-fifteen has been a whirlwind and we are only in June!

To catch you up my year has gone like this…

January:

  • My friend, Ashlyn, started taking pictures and asked me if I would like to model for her

February: 

  • After 36 years of marriage, my parents were sealed in the Gilbert arizona temple (on the day after their wedding anniversary)

  • I started to seriously consider all the good in my life and decided to stop taking them for granted.
  • My friends and I went to Snowflake, Arizona for the weekend (where I semi-conquered my fear of heights and went repelling off a mountain, sorry mum!)
