About Eldie

Hello there!  I am Lauren, although I go by several nicknames: Ren, Rennie, Renjamin, Laurence and most recently, LD (my initials) hence the title of this blog.  

I had a love-at-first-sight experience with my now husband, Danny, when I was 15 years old (2004).  We didn't immediately get together.  Like most youth, I ran wild, enjoying all that single life had to offer.  Partying every weekend, clubbing, wearing matching clothes.  Danny and I dated on and off for a few years, but I was too wild for him. I had to roam. 

Then, in 2012, miraculous things happened.  I bought a house.  I landed a great job in my field.  I got my shit together and figured out that, while I enjoyed single life, what Danny gave me was more fulfilling.  So, I calmed down.  

We got married in 2013. We conceived a child in 2013.  We miscarried in 2013.  We visited Mexico and South Dakota in 2013.  It's been an emotional ride, but without Danny, I couldn't have made it.

I love this guy.
While we work on expanding our family, we spend our time loving on our four fur-babies.

I enjoy tackling DIY projects, spray painting things, working in the garden and flower beds, finding the cheapest thriftiest ways to complete said DIY projects and I am getting pretty damn good at cooking food from scratch.  I still have so much to learn.  Follow along as I share my experience through life!

You can check out my older posts here.  Danny is taking some pretty kick-ass photographs.  You can view them here!

I hope you enjoy your time here.  Thanks for stopping by!
