Hello! My name is Laura.
I created this little corner of the internet and named it after Mother Teresa’s quote:
“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
Welcome to my blog, my life, my drop in the ocean. The world would be less because of any of our missing drops – including yours. Thanks for stopping by mine!
As a relatively recent college graduate, I’m back in my childhood home of the Bay Area working for a Catholic publisher and figuring out life as a young, Catholic, professional.
I am passionate about being the best version of ourselves, my Catholic faith, life issues (whole spectrum from womb to the tomb), and figuring out what it means to be Catholic in world that’s not. Deep conversations over coffee, beautiful music, holding babies, sweaty workouts, laughing till you cry, cooking something new, growing things, a good book, sunshine on a hike, coffee, and helping other people make me feel alive.
Something you’ll definitely find on the blog: controversial issues. They’re my favorite things to write about, and why I started writing. I’m all about comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.
If you’d like to get to know me, stay for a bit, check out my most popular posts, and connect on social media. You can mostly find me on:
Otherwise, contact me directly if you’d like! I’m an email or comment away and promise to respond if you’re not a creeper.
