Hey! I'm Laura. here’s a little background on me.
Laura here — I’m the writer, speaker, friend, and big dreamer behind The Grown Up Girl and I am SO happy you’re in my corner of the internet!
I live with my son Leo and husband Zach is sunny San Diego, CA! I’m living in my dream place, working my dream job, but it was a long and winding road to get here…
Between my husband and I during the past nine years we have had 11 different jobs, 2 advanced degrees, 1 kid, 7 different homes in 3 different cities. Through all of these changes (and the challenges along the way) I came to the realization that this “grown up” thing is WAY harder than anyone ever told me it would be.
The more I talked with my friends and shared the highs and lows of what I was living through, the more I realized I wasn’t alone in feeling overwhelmed by growing up. While the challenges are real and hard — it is possible to grow through them and come out stronger than when we started AND with a life that we truly love. That’s why I started The Grown Up Girl!
My mission with The Grown Up Girl is to:
Encourage and motivate YOU by being transparent about the ups and downs I’ve gone through (and am still going through, who am I kidding?!)
Give you tangible tips and tools so you can THRIVE, not just survive, as a grown up
Most days you can find me writing in my home office, walking my dog Charlie, reading or playing Nintendo with my 6 year old, meeting up with girlfriends in one of San Diego’s amazing bars/restaurants, dating my husband, or teaching yoga!
To see more of my everyday life you can find me hanging out on Instagram (@thegrownupgirl).
