The Lovely Laura Life grew out of a desire to keep writing after the birth of my first son and the blog I used to document my first pregnancy came to it’s assumed end. It re-awakened the writer and the artist in me, and I simply decided to press on… (pun always intended).

The mission of this blog is to: serve and engage people to live intentionally.

Whether that be through motherhood essays, personal style reflections, farm life experiences as well as interior design related content.

Of course, as a mama of two young boys, a large topic of this blog is motherhood and all facets of this wonderfully challenging season of life. Among other things, I share my love for real food, farm living, home projects and my own personal style story.


My name is Laura Blanton. I’m a self-proclaimed farm wife wannabe living with my husband Nick and two boys, Wyatt and Thurser, on our tiny farm in southwest Ohio.

I’m a part time marketer for a small company two days a week and the rest of the time you can find me:

  • juggling writing + consulting from home
  • chasing my kids, dogs and chickens
  • winging it in the kitchen
  • reading style blogs
  • behind a camera
  • scheming (and doing) home diy projects

Or otherwise “mom-ing” it up — and trying to do it all with a little bit of grace.

Oh, and trying to not eat (all of the) chocolate.
