Writer, crafter, reader, explorer. I live in Denver, Colorado with my cat, Pippin and my roommate, Elisabeth. While my blog may be titled “Just Lauren”, I am anything but just a person. I am intricate, complicated, amazing, nuanced. I am constantly growing and learning. I enjoy books, cooking, cross stitch, gardening, and the little things. I try to take advantage of all the awesome things to do in my city and use this blog to keep track of my thoughts and experiences.

Note: Starting on July 16, 2013, I decided to write a blog post every day for the next 365 days. I wanted to challenge myself and encourage myself to experience and do more. If you read past posts you might see titles that start with “Day X”. It was my way of keeping track of how long I had gone.
