Hello! You’ve stumbled upon my little corner of the internet. It’s nice to see you here. Let me introduce myself…
I’m Laura, wife to Nick (a university lecturer), and stay-at-home mum to two preschoolers. We live in a little 1930s house in Bristol, United Kingdom.
My story… is that I’m just ordinary.
Honestly, nothing here is perfect. I’m just writing about what’s on my mind and what’s on my heart and what’s on my table for supper.
This is a space for thinking out loud and sharing life’s joys.
If you want to know a little more… you should know that in our home, we love God – Father, Son, Spirit… a holy, awesome God: a Father who gives and sustains all life; a Son who’s the firstborn over and redeemer of all creation; a Spirit by whom we live and breathe in the now. We are a Christian family. We go to church. We read The Word. We try to live and to raise our children in line with God’s ways. We ask for forgiveness. We live on hope.
In the not-so-distant past, I birthed two amazing babies, both born premature… I kept a blog while our younger child was in NICU, and I occasionally post prematurity-related things there.
In the more-distant past, I was a music student at Oxford University… and I had another blog, where some of the content of this blog originally appeared.
I love Jesus, baking, tea, exploring, cake, reading recipe books, planning, lists, wellies, cooking, and holidays. I look for beauty wherever it can be found. There are joys every day.
Whenever I have the time, I write.
Whoever you are, you are welcome here.
