about me


Hello There! My name is Laura. I named my blog everydayVALENTINE because I have always loved Valentine’s Day & it happens to be my birthday. Many things about Valentine’s day are a small reflection of me but I also believe that it doesn’t have to be the only time of year that we show others how much we love them. My hope is that this blog will inspire you to celebrate your loved ones all year-long through party ideas, recipes, crafts, travel tips and little snippets of my daily life. I pray that I can encourage you and inspire you by sharing the ups and downs of my life story as well. Go get yourself a mocha and stay a while! xo

::Our family grew when we had our sweet Blake in July of 2014 {he is as feisty as he is sweet}

::I’m known for being outgoing, social and silly {you can learn 33 more silly things about me HERE}

::I’m a stay-at-home mommy

::Aaron is my amazing & supportive husband {and I have a love/hate relationship with his career as a firefighter}

::Paige is our joy & beautiful little girl {P really stands for personality because she has it in spades}

::Grant is our delight  & our handsome little man {G really stands for goofy because he is a little nut}

::Our little family likes to have fun & laugh a lot {but it’s safe to say that we can quickly go from being way too silly to very serious-and every emotion in between-in one sitting}

::Our goal is to allow our faith to be at the center of everything we do

::I really enjoy coffee, food, creativity and Instagram {and TV but I don’t like to brag about that}

::Oh and Disneyland

::Oh and the Autumn season

::I wish I was a reader but I’m just not {I have talked about books once…check it out HERE}

::I am a travel BUG by nature {we actually have to make a huge effort to stay-put for more than a month or two}

::I hate birds

::Since Aaron and I got married in 2002 we have lived in 5 cities up and down the West Coast

::Going to college at Seattle Pacific University {where I met my Husband and life long friends} was one of the best decisions I have ever made {you can learn more about that HERE}

::I’m thrilled to be back where I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area near family & old friends { especially in light of the fact that my Dad passed away suddenly in October of 2012…you can read more about that HERE}
