about me

Hello There! My name is Laura. At one point I named my blog everydayVALENTINE because I have always loved Valentine’s Day & it happens to be my birthday (it’s a name I still use for Instagram). 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 hospitality, home, lifestyle posts, 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
