happy anniversary

well, it’s official. FMGD has been a real blog for one whole year. it’s crazy how much i’ve learned and grown over the past year through this little blog. i’ve loved every minute of it and look forward to many more years.

to those of you that have supported me from the wee beginnings, thank you. i appreciate every single one of you and hope that you have enjoyed the journey as i have.

to those of you who found me somewhere along the way, thank you.  i’m so encouraged by all of your comments, e-mails, etc. and have loved sharing some of my life with you.

thank you for making this so much fun for me and for helping me to look forward to what’s ahead for me and this blog.

Hi there!

Lauren Loves is an online destination where I share my personal style, beauty finds, and bits of life in hopes to inspire other women to feel good in their skin and find the beauty in the ordinary.
