Laura Moore

Hey there! I'm Laura, a southern lady living in the beautiful PNW. I'm a lover of sunrises, medicinal herbs, poetry, gummy worms, and lofty run-on sentences. After being tossed around by life for a little bit, I've decided to take a reboot by hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2018. If you come along on this journey with me, you will be privy to my insights into the characters found on the trail, the constancy of my cold, cold feet, and a widow's sense of humor. As I like to say, feel free to hang out with me as I explore life after it all falls apart.
