A Bit About Me

Hi! Welcome! If you're new here, this is a good place to start.


I have never done one of these before and I think it’s about time! Today I am going to be sharing a bit about myself, especially for those of you who are new here.

 

For starters, my name is Laura but my friends and family call me Lulu or Lu — you can call me whatever you want ◡̈ I have a 7-year old cavapoo named Fritz. When I was 21 yrs old and Instagram first became a thing, I wanted my platform under a pseudonym to keep my content private and in such, Lulufritz was born! A lot of people assume I just combined my first name and my dog's name, but this was before Fritz! It is actually a fictional name of a character in the movie Black Book with Brittany Murphy. I know, v random.

 

I am 33 years old and live on the south shore of Massachusetts. I am a full-time paralegal in Boston and part-time yoga teacher in Cohasset. I am a daughter, sister, friend, cousin and godmother. Besides yoga, I love reading, writing, music, listening to podcasts, scary movies, the beach, dirty martinis and cheeseburgers. I am engaged to my best friend and we are getting married in Ireland in May! We’re also in the process of building a house on the south shore and renting a home on the beach in the meantime.

 

All in all, life is good!

 

It wasn’t always so great, though. In 2019, I went through a life-altering divorce. The year leading up to my divorce completely knocked me off my axis and my world was turned upside down. It felt as if my dreams for my future had slipped through my fingers overnight and I was forced to start my life over at the age of 29.

 

It was during this time that I knew I needed to go inward; I knew I needed to do the internal work that I had avoided my entire life. So, I packed up my things, moved out of my house and started fresh. I took one full year to do a deep-dive into the depths of my being; no more running, no more avoiding, no more pretending that everything was “fine”. I knew I needed to asses how I had gotten to this place in my life, and more importantly, how I was going to get out.

 

It was during this period of self-discovery that I found the wellness practices that changed my entire life. I began a yoga teacher training, went to therapy, read a million self-help books, started meditating, journaling, doing breathwork, taught myself how to cook healthy, nourishing meals, listened to podcasts, saw a psychic — you name it, I tried it.

 

It was no surprise that the pandemic hit during this period of my life. I had felt a huge shift taking place both personally and on a global level — this deep need to get quiet and go inward. I actually loved my time in quarantine! I read my books, did puzzles, lots of arts & crafts, watched movies, cooked and walked for miles on the beach, collecting seaglass. I was thriving in my little cocoon, warm and safe.

 

Fast forward and here we are in 2024. I honestly feel like a new human. I think a part of me will always be a little unsure of my voice and my place in this world, but I have grown into a woman who is confident, strong and healthy - both mentally and physically. I feel I am finally on the right track in my life and it feels really, really good. I have done the deep work and have come out on the other side.

 

To be clear, I still have so much work to do and this journey to self is a daily effort that I will be on for the rest of life; it is a commitment to myself that I do my best to fulfill everyday but I slip up all the time! I don’t practice all the things I know are best for my mental health every single day and that’s just the reality! It’s life. Giving myself this grace has been a huge part of my growth process.

 

The reason I am sharing all of this is because I want you to know that you are not alone. Maybe you’re at a place in your life where you feel lost, broken, alone, exhausted or disconnected — I’ve been there so many times. My dream is to give people the tools and practices to help them find their fullest, happiest expressions of self.

 


The truth is, “finding yourself” and learning how to best nourish your mind, body and spirit doesn’t need to be a difficult process. I don’t think you need to pay a life coach or a therapist hundreds and thousands of dollars to turn your life around. I know from experience that you simply need to find the practices that you will commit to on a daily basis that best serve your lifestyle and personality. Self-love and personal growth should be the benchmarks of our lives, not just the motivational books we read once a year.

 

If all of this hits home with you, I would love if you followed along on my journey as I do my best to share more of my story, wellness tips & tricks, yoga flows, healthy recipes, book recommendations and so much more. Stay tuned for some fun stuff coming very soon!


Xoxo, Lulu
