Hi, I'm Lauren

 I scream loud when I jump into cold water. I have too many red lipsticks and coffee mugs. My favorite writers are all named Annie.

In Jesus, I find every reason to hope and deep down in my heart, I know that nothing good ever comes cheap. I have insecure days when I worry about the future. Other days, I have trouble breathing from laughing so hard.

I started this blog after a tough breakup when I was struggling to believe in real love. (Disclaimer: This blog is not about "kissing dating goodbye" or throwing past boyfriends under the bus.) Single with a Happy Heart is about practicing radical self-care and experiencing growth right where you are. 

I know how dating culture can feel more like a fast-track to ruining your heart than it does the path to success. In the puddle hop from relationship to relationship and back again, things can be different from this manic, endless cycle. The beautiful part is that whether dating or single, you get to choose what is good for your heart. Let's get started.
