I'm Lauren, I grew up in Missouri and now live in Alabama. I never thought growing up that I would live in a different state. I met my best friend, now husband, Brandon in the summer of 2009. I had graduated from University of Missouri-Columbia and earned the opportunity to intern for the Springfield Cardinals. Throughout my internship I became great friends with Brandon. After the season was over and the rules no longer applied about players dating interns and vice versa our friendship grew into a loving long distance relationship. He proposed on Christmas Eve of 2010 and we said I do November 5, 2011.

We are getting ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime while Brandon pursues his baseball career in the Japanese Baseball League starting this season. We be living in Osaka, Japan from March until October. Of course I will be documenting most of those adventures here. 

In the mean you'll find  puppy pictures, sewing projects, or delicious dishes. It could be none of the above or useless ramblings. Thanks for reading. I hope you'll stay awhile.
