Laura discovered the joy of communicating through the written word during her senior year in high school. After service in the United States Marine Corps Laura gained much writing experience through her study of the Humanities at Florida State University. Laura began a blog in 2008 to document her family's six-week cross-country trip. At that time she rediscovered her love of writing. Laura is a homeschooling mother of four children and she enjoys sharing their adventures and misadventures. Laura has written about homeschooling, child-rearing, christian faith, home decorating, travel, and more.
