Welcome to MT Friend! I am Laci and the writer behind this blog.This is where I will share my journey on this adventure called motherhood as well as some literal family travel. Thanks for joining me and I am so happy you are here.
I am a 30 something “ish” mama that loves travel, good food, cute clothes and bargains! In addition to spending time with my family, I love to plan and take trips and try new things! My passion is helping others, especially other moms, because Girls we need a village ( or two)!!! I am obsessed with ALL the things fashion related, gadgets, organizational hacks, and anything to do with travel. You will notice I gush about all of the above- a lot!
While I do love the finer things there is a cheapskate inside ragging to get out 😉 That is where the “frugal twist” comes into play but Mr. MT would disagree 😉 Therefore, I would probably describe my personal style as champagne taste on a sparkling wine budget. I love food too! Did I mention that ?
I was born and raised in South Georgia all of my life in a wonderful mayberry-esque town by the name of Homerville.I am also a PROUD Southerner and lover of all things of the South including but not limited to coca cola (diet of course), the “Dawgs” and the Falcons by association, Georgia Southern ( my alma mater), cheese grits, crab cakes, seafood in general, most things that are fried, antiques, specifically china, and all the things pertaining to BBQ and southern cooking.
I went to college at Ole’ GSU, where I pledged Phi Mu, and graduated with my BBA. A few years later I married my husband and my pride and joy, Pierce Monroe, was born in 2013. I worked in banking, marketing, and account management until 2016 when I decided it was the perfect time to go to nursing school.
My family and I live year round in a popular vacation area, the glorious Golden Isles on the Georgia coast, and there are SO many wonderful things to do here all throughout the year. After seven years now I still find new things to do and explore on a weekly basis. There is really so much for families in this area and I never cease be amazed and thankful.
