I’m Lauren, the creator of Darling in Denim, and I’m so excited to share the things I love with you all! To give a small bit about what this site is all about, I’ll start by sharing how I got started with blogging. So I decided in 2015 I wanted to start a blog to share my life and ideas through channeling my love for writing and making creative, visual content. Then in 2016, in God’s pursuit for my life, I came to know Jesus Christ as my lord and savior and realized the great need for others to hear the gospel! Because of this miracle, I decided my blog would be used as a way to share my life as a Christ follower and to give Him the glory for all the exciting, creative things I post (in hopes of inspiring and encouraging you)!
Some basic info: I am 20 years old and currently studying media advertising at IU while working at a local tea shop and blogging in my down time.
My loves: I love golden retrievers and I happen to know two very cute ones (Brinkley and Amie) who may appear in my posts from time to time. I enjoy spending time with my sweet friends and family. I love ice cream and donuts and my sweet tooth gets the best of me. The best place I’ve visited is Italy, I loved the culture! My favorite verse is Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ our lord.” I love going hiking and backpacking when I have great people to do it with (and good food, trail food is my favorite food). Some of my favorite bloggers are: Amber Fillerup Clark of Barefoot Blonde, Naomi Davis of Love Taza, Kathleen Post of Lemon Blonde, Casey Leigh Wiegand of The Wiegands.
My goal is to be honest and open in my blog because I think media can make life seem perfect or give unrealistic expectations. So, fair warning: My life is messy and not perfect but it’s a beautiful, adventurous life that is blessed with wonderful people and opportunities for which I am very thankful. I want to share the “have it together” times (few and far between, can I get an amen?) and the messy, overwhelming times. I’ll do my very best to stay true to this goal!
