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!

Being a somewhat recent college graduate (Business Management with a minor in Theology), 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 faith, life issues (whole spectrum from womb to the tomb), and figuring out what it means to be Catholic in a whacked up world. Deep conversations over coffee, beautiful music, holding babies, sweaty workouts, cooking something new, growing things, a good book, sunshine on a hike, and helping other people make me feel alive.

You might also notice that I enjoy:

  • Nutella,
  • the beach
  • DIY/crunchy experiments
  • spontaneous dance parties
  • Kickboxing (also HIIT workouts are a favorite)
  • Hiking
  • thrift stores & Craigslist
  • Sunshine

Another thing you’ll definitely find on the blog: controversial issues. They’re my favorite things to write about, and why I started writing. If I make you uncomfortable, let’s chat about it!

I never set out to be a blogger, but things happen sometimes. It all started with this guest post. My work is now published at Live Action News, Life Site NewsLife News, and Catholic365.

If you’d like to get to know me more, stay for a bit, check out my most popular posts, and connect on social media.

And contact me if you’d like! I’m an email or comment away and promise to respond if you’re not a creeper.


To Life,
