Hello! I’m Laura Elizabeth. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I hope that the writing encourages and edifies, and that the photos inspire. I hope you are moved to laugh, cry, sigh, dream, and look a little closer at all the beauty that God has provided for our enjoyment and His glory.
About five years ago, my family made the decision to move to South Dakota, to be nearer family and to put roots down in a place where the Christian heritage of our nation is still pretty strong. On March 1, 2015, we finally made it out to the Black Hills, to our “ancestral home”, and to a place that has always felt like home.
I am a homeschool graduate, and earned my Bachelors of Music in vocal performance at Eastern Illinois University in December 2014, before moving out to the Black Hills. Through a long train of events and work choices, including working for my dad, for a rancher, at a quilt store, at an antique store, and as a medical scribe, God has blessed me with 16 (and counting) piano students, photography clients, and a flexible position at the clinic where I still work one day a week as a scribe. After five and a half years of college, it has been good to be out doing things, breathing fresh air, and dabbling. Pleasantly dabbling. It has also been wonderful to see certain projects begin to sustain themselves – an exciting time for an entrepreneur!
Reading, writing, walks in the great outdoors, photography, sewing…and of course my family and church family…play big roles in my life. What a joy to live at home with my family, and to be so near my extended family. This is an exciting journey! Thanks for letting me share it with you.
