Lauren Nicole.

I was born and raised in the beautiful Knoxville, Tennessee and I will forever call this place home. I am engaged to Sam. We met in April of 2014, bought our first home in April of 2015 and will tie the knot this October in front of our dearest family and friends. We have the most beautiful baby boy, Cooper. He truly is the light of our life. I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee where it's no secret that us Vol fans are eager to sing Rocky Top every chance we get. I am a healthy mixture of spontaneous and structured. I like to try new things and visit new places, yet I am the biggest homebody you will ever meet. I am extremely passionate about animals. I enjoy the lake, being outside, country music, wine, and engaging in meaningful conversations. I am a good listener and even better smart ass - just ask Sam!

I started this blog in 2010 and it slowly tapered off at the beginning of 2013. It was a good few years, but since then, much has changed. I have lived and learned, said "goodbye" to some friends, and said "hello" to many more. I took on a full time corporate job and just accepted my second promotion. Add wedding planning, a little boy, and four pets to the mix and simply put; life is beautifully chaotic!

So here's to a fresh start and a blank slate.
