ABOUT Lauren

A lover of all things fashion, interiors, gardening and time with family and friends, I am a small-town Wisconsin based wife and pup-mom working in HR 9-5.

After a pretty traumatic start to 2020 and a global pandemic, I revaluated everything I thought I wanted out of life and 2 years later, I have spent time healing and I feel like I finally have direction again.

I found a connection between Zac Efron, a 20+ year friendship, and a dietitian in Cleveland (I talk about that connection HERE) that have really helped me to navigate the past two years and find a lifestyle that truly makes me happy and confident as I enter the 2nd half of my 30s this year.

I am pursuing passion projects that, prior to 2020, were only a day dream. I have big dreams of reopening my Etsy shop in the short term, really committing to this blog, starting a community garden in the future, and opening a bookstore in our resort lake town.

And that’s why I’m here. I’m a people person at my core and I want you to join me and connect with me as my husband, pup and I navigate our growing family in the 21st century and pursue these projects. I am aiming to live consciously: in designing our home, how we shop, and our every day life following a Mediterranean lifestyle in the heart of the Midwest.

I’m definitely not perfect. I’m learning every day. And I want to learn with all of you and share all that life can and has to offer. So welcome to my Real Life Schmidt. Grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of red wine) and stay a while. I’m so happy to have you here!
