About Me

I can’t parallel park.

I know I’ve left the suburbs whenever I remember this. It’s easy to forget how to parallel park when you find oversized parking lots around every store, restaurant, and church you visit.

There are places that are cool to live. And then there are the suburbs. Maybe I’m a little bit of a cliche, a suburban mom with a blog, but I sure have enjoyed the way this blog allows me a little space of my own in the midst of raising four kids.

Hi, I’m Laura and I am thankful to live in a Little House in the Suburbs. Like the original Laura who lived in a Little House, I want to capture what life is like right here, right now. I don’t offer parenting advice very often. I don’t have any recipes you’d want to try. I mostly just try to ponder the ordinary stuff of my life in search of themes that are timeless and unchanging.

I’m a former English teacher, current homemaker, and an aspiring amateur enthusiast of many kinds of writing. I live in Wisconsin with my husband, who is also my pastor, and my four young kids, two daughters and two sons.

I’m learning to love my suburban life. Won’t you be my neighbor?

    • Glad to hear from someone who understands! It really does feel like Jeremiah’s description in Jeremiah 20:9 “There is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones and I am weary with holding it in.”
