Lauren, who is originally from Virginia, is married to an Army vet. The two have three sons. When she isn’t refereeing fights, playing Legos, or buying a ton of snacks for her brood, Lauren is a freelance magazine writer and stay-at-home Mom. Before they moved around the world and back, Lauren was a high school English and Journalism teacher. When she’s not trying to get everyone to baseball on time, Lauren enjoys volunteering at her sons’ schools, reading, and baking (and eating!) desserts. A former contributor to the Jacksonville Moms Blog, Lauren is excited to share her experiences with the Military Moms Blog community!
