Real Life


I started this blog with the hope that I could reach out to people that are going through both good and bad times in their life. I know that I won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I pride myself on being a pretty relatable person.

I live an ordinary life. I'm the youngest of three girls. I have a loud Italian family. I've fought with my siblings. I was teased growing up. I've hated my body. I've loved my body. I've traveled some, but not enough. I've had best friend drama. I went to college. I moved away from home. I got married. I got divorced [that was hard for me to type "out loud"]. I moved back home. I started grad school. I figured out who I am [let's be real, though. Do we ever really know who we are?] And all of that before the age of 30. 

In the spaces between all of those moments, though, I have lived my life. So while I know I'll talk about all of the things that I wrote above, I also want to talk about the in-between. The moments that are so overwhelmingly wonderful, and gut-wrenchingly hard. The days where you're sure nothing will ever go right. Or the days that are going so right, you're scared out of your mind. I can list so many of those days off of the top of my head. Those are the stories that I want to share. I want to be real and honest. Because on all of those good and bad days, I would've killed for honesty. To know that I wasn't alone in those feelings. THAT is exactly what I needed. THAT is why I started this blog. And THAT is what I hope to be for all of you.


XO,

Lauren
