About Me



Hello hello! I'm Lauren and this is my blog, Life is Good.

Life is Good is what I came up with when I couldn't think of a name for my blog.  How's that for honesty?  But it really is the motto I try to live my life by because no matter what is going on there is always something good, something to be grateful for.  This little blog of mine is a visual journal of the positive things happening in my life.

I started writing in a journal when I was 7 years old and haven't stopped since.  It's something I've always enjoyed doing and will probably do for the rest of my life.  I started my blog at the end of 2007 when I began reading friends' blogs, which inspired me to start my own.  I first wrote little posts here and there to keep my family up-to-date on what I was up to at college, but now I post about a wide variety of topics and in much greater detail.  I still keep a personal journal, but this is more of a visual journal where I can post pictures and videos as well.

A little about me...I grew up in California, but lived in Utah for 5 years while attending Brigham Young University (BYU) and loved it.  After graduating from college I moved to the East Coast and lived in Washington DC and loved it more than words can say.  Then I took some time off to travel and be with family and somehow ended back up on the West Coast.

As you'll quickly notice from looking at my blog, I absolutely love to travel.  In fact, I love traveling more than almost anything else in the world.  It makes me so incredibly happy to explore new countries and experience different cultures.  I am constantly thinking of places I'd like to go and planning imaginary trips in my mind.  At a minimum I am planning on going to all 50 states and every continent.

I also love reading, great food, and photography.  I have the most wonderful family in the world and the dearest friends.  I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I play the piano and like to ski.  My favorite color is pink and I would like to run a marathon one day...but that will take a miracle since running anything over 3 miles is killer.
