Hello! Welcome to This Darling Adventure. It is a pleasure to meet you! Cuddle up with a cup of tea and please let me introduce myself.

My name is Laura and I love to adventure. I am originally from southern California, but currently call Alberta, Canada my home with my beloved husband, Andy. I love cooking delicious food, creating art from unassuming random objects, going for morning runs through the snow, caring for my plant babies, hiking in the mountains, exploring beautiful places around the world, and enjoying meals around the table with friends, family and strangers.

Why do I write? To travel, to tell stories, to discover beauty, and to be creative – these are just a few of the things I believe add flavor to life. Each new day is an adventure made to be discovered, full of endless and unexpected possibilities. I write because I want to plant in others a refreshing hope and a deep longing for living a meaningful life to its fullest. I write because I want to encourage others to be the best that they can be wherever they are in the world and to seek out a life of adventure, even in the seemingly mundane and everyday. I write because life is far too short not to.
