Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren and you can find me over at Inside My Present. I can’t thank Kara enough for having me over today to meet all of you lovely people!
Inside My Present encompasses all the things I love- from attempting to cook new things from scratch and making up my own recipes to craft and organizing projects that help make my life easier on the eyes. You’ll also catch some posts about my travels, that is when I’m able to get away, and great restaurants I encounter.
A little about me… I’m an Oklahoma girl who grew up wanting to be on Broadway but by the time I hit college I decided the medical field was the way to go. I have been a nurse in the Cardiac Cath Lab for over a year and a half now and I love my job. I’m part of the team that opens up those nasty blockages in the arteries that feed your heart. If someone’s having a heart attack, they come to us! It’s an amazing feeling to know you are actively saving a life. And I love the adrenaline rush!
I started Inside My Present during a blizzard in January 2011 (yes, in Oklahoma!) because I needed something to motivate me. A blog can be more than just a way to share interesting things, it can be that thing that gives you purpose when you need it most. I was going strong until the summer, then life got crazy. I tried to pick it back up, but it wasn’t until April of this year when I moved to Maryland that I came back at full speed!
Here are some of my favorite posts- a couple new and one throw back!
