I was and continue to be an avid reader of my good friend Gretchen’s blog which ultimately inspired me to start The Lo Down. “Lo” or “Murph” is what everyone in my life calls me. Hearing my actual name, Lauren, often times startles me because its so rare that I hear it. My goal in creating The Lo Down is to share with family & friends the people, the places, the experiences, the feelings and the thoughts that make me “Lo.” The Lo Down is also a way for me to document and share the many blessings that I have in my life and to remember to enjoy the little things; a beautiful day, a great conversation, good friends and wonderful memories. Thanks for visiting! Enjoy!
