Thanks for stopping by! I’m Lori, and this is the place I share my journey. Who am I? I’m a survivor of divorce, a (newly appointed) dreamer, a newlywed who dared to try love again, and a mom to four amazing kids and four also amazing step children (yes, you counted right, that’s EIGHT!). Come and share my journey from wife of seventeen years to divorced, single mama dabbling in dating to newlywed and mom to our large brood.
Through the ups and downs of my journey, I’ve begun to surround myself with real, generous, giving people and try to eliminate the negativity from my life. I love laughing, spending time with my husband and family, photography, volleyball and softball, popping off and keeping people on their toes. I craft a little, decorate a little, cook a little, and drink a little. I was born and raised in Utah, and spent a few years in San Diego, CA (a place close to my heart). I may live in the mountains, but I’m really a beach girl through and through. Bring me my sunglasses and tanning lotion, stat!
This is where I’m recording lessons I’ve learned, trials I’ve encountered and growth I’ve experienced post-divorce while finding balance and growing into my authentic self. This is who I am. If you don’t like it here, move on to the next blog, please. I really could care less. Part of loving people is loving yourself. And that, I do.
