Get Your Blog Out There!


I love Neely's link-ups and was super excited for her latest "Get Your Blog Out There" that I totally forgot that'd already written this post and had it saved up...hence the 2 posts in one day! If you're interested in finding new blogs to follow and connecting with some new bloggers then you should totally check out this link-up!

I'm Laura, the gal behind this little bloggy here, Life of Lu. My best friends from college nicknamed me Lulu, and the name stuck! When I started this blog, I wasn't sure I wanted anyone to know my real name, but when I kept getting responses to my comments addressed to "Lu" I decided I needed to clarify that Lu is just a nickname!

About My Blog

One of my college besties, Ash, started a blog, and I loved reading it and kept thinking how special it was going to be for her to get to have all of her memories documented on her blog! I apprehensively started one, got a little slow start, had some commitment issues, and sometime this past summer, things just clicked! I've been going strong ever since! I find so much joy in blogging! It's a great outlet for me, and I've connected with some wonderful blogger friends!

I blog about anything and everything-- my life, shopping, recipes, reality TV, books, relationships, aa new product I'm loving, family, teaching, and whatever else is relevant at the moment!

About Me

I am a Carolina girl who married her high school sweetheart in 2010!

 I LOVE to travel and have so many places I want to go...with my favorite travel companion, of course!

I'm all things girly and pink but can totally hang at any and all sporting events! 

I teach the most wonderful group of 3rd graders and am getting my Maters in Education (Literacy)...which means I pretty much have no energy on the Monday and Tuesday nights that I have class!

I grew up on the coast and love being near the water! I'd give anything to go back to the summers in middle and high school when I'd literally spend all day long at the beach every day!

I'm a total shopaholic, and my closet (or 2!) shows it! And, I watch way too much reality TV!

I love to read, bake, have game nights with friends, and do anything active!

My family and my friends are my everything!

Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!
