Hi! I'm Laura, an American mom who lived in southeast England from 2010 - 2014. While I loved every minute of living there, it was time to return to the US with my family after four years of living abroad.

I now blog from Northern California under a new name: The Happy Camper Studio. In my 'studio', I work on my photographs, write blog posts, research, and author a debut book. Please visit me!

Although I no longer add content to this blog, I still monitor comments - so feel free to say hello or ask a question below. My email is Laura[at]TheHappyCamperStudio[dot]com.

You also can find me on Facebook and Instagram.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hi Laura, I can't see an email address on your blog, so I'm leaving a little message here! If you did one of Kat's courses, I believe we may have met. I did Kat's Find Your Eye course: the introduction and the follow up course. I went under the name of 'zinnia'.
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!

If there are mosquitoes here, they have not left an impression with me from the last two summers :)

Your life sounds amazing. I am an American also but dream of living in England. Anything I ever read just makes it sound so amazing and relaxing in England.
