I’ve been inspired by so many bloggers, friends and creatives all around me. Denver is filled with some downright geniuses in the creative world. I’m always discovering new and exciting artists as I slowly dip my foot into this pool of Denver Creatives.

But there’s a special creative I’d like to introduce you to, Lauren. Lauren is the writer behind Pearls Poppies Pinkies Up, several blogs and articles in Darling Magazine and her newest venture, Nellie Magazine. We met through blogging, in particular, the day it snowed on May 1st  here in Denver. We both posted pictures on Instagram – soon finding out we lived just blocks from each other at the time! That turned into a coffee date I won’t soon forget.

After reading her blog and articles on Darling, I built up this image in my head of who this amazing Lauren would be! She was that and so much more. I felt an instant connection to her in that little coffee shop. She is one of the kindest people I know. She’s a lady in every sense of the word, but with a bohemian twist. She is an incredible listener, friend and I never cease to feel completely encouraged after time spent with this precious gal. So, today I wanted to share her, her blog in hopes that her beautiful writing and ability to share in a raw, selfless way will encourage you as much as it has me.

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Celebrate Good Times, Day at a Time

Happy Birthday, Dearest.




How blessed I am to have you as my friend. You have brought so much happiness, laughter and “girliness” into my life. You are quite possibly the sweetest and kindest person I know. You always bring a smile to my face when I see you. And every time I do, I just want to run up and hug you and tell you everything that has happened in the last week since I saw you last and hear absolutely all of the details of yours. I look forward to refurbishing many furniture pieces in the future, going on lots of girly trips and spoiling ourselves on shopping trips. You, my dear are my friend and I am thankful for you.

Happy Birthday!

Love – Aubrey
