Welcome to the World of Laura B. As you can probably figure out, I am Laura B. My World is in the Charlotte, NC area and consists of my hubby, K, daughter A, who is 9, and son L who is 4. I’m also mommy to 2 dogs, Mayo (as in Cinco de Mayo, not the condiment) and Scooby, 1 cat named Willow and various fish that remain nameless. I also have a grown stepson and daughter-in-law and 2 adorable grandsons who call me Mimi.
Why did I start blogging? First I have to tell you about my Old World. Less than 2 years ago I was a childless wife working as a project manager in the Corporate World. K and I were hoping to adopt because I was complaining that my life had no purpose and I knew that my purpose was to be a patient, nurturing and perfect mother (I know, Fantasy World).
Fast forward to my New World….A and L came to live with us and are now officially a part of this family. Yeah!! I was kicked out of the Corporate World, rather rudely, and decided to never go back. My New World does have purpose now, I was meant to be a mother, and I love my kids with all my heart, but I’m not the patient, nurturing and perfect mom I thought I would be. Welcome Real World! How come nobody told me how hard it is!?
As part of my New World, I found that I needed a creative outlet (and a part-time job that I’m still searching for) and a blog seemed like a perfect idea! Here I can share My World; all the imperfectness of it. Keeping it real with creativity, life, frugal living, recipes, ideas, tips and more.
So, welcome. I hope you enjoy My World….keeping it real.
