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 or 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.
