Wife. Boy mom. Believer. Dabbling in creativity of all kinds.
I'm Laura and I'm a thirty-something stay at home mom with a passion for creativity and the written word. In this space, you'll find me musing about motherhood and sharing about creative projects and what I'm reading. I share even more on Instagram--find me at @beautifulnoisenc.
These are a few of my favorite things:
My family. Good books. Coffee. Coconut cake. Rocking chairs on porches. Sweet tea. Picnics in the park. Leaving the library with a stack of books. Listening to podcasts. Southern Living. Monograms. Paper planners. Watching "Friends" and "Gilmore Girls" on repeat. Taking a ridiculous amount of photos. Summertime. Trying to convince my family that we should be more minimalist. Days by the pool. Taking my kids on adventures. Dad jokes. Planning trips. And yes, the Sound of Music.
My dad passed away a few years ago, and my blog name is a nod to him. He was a HUGE Neil Diamond fan - it's what I grew up listening to, and was one of the first big concerts I went to! At my wedding, there was no question that the father-daughter dance would be to a Neil Diamond song - the only question was which one. We eventually settled on Beautiful Noise, and I decided that was the perfect name for my blog.
I'm also a born and bred North Carolinian, and I LOVE North Carolina. It's an amazing state with so much to offer, and I feel like growing up here shaped a lot of who I am, so I wanted to give a nod to that as well.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting! I hope you'll follow along as I share about motherhood, creativity, and finding the small joys in life.
