Hey y’all! I’m Laura Bedokis.
I’m a small-town southern Illinois graphic designer & photographer! I am obsessed with traveling, dogs, and the Bachelor. I am multi-passionate, always on the move, and I love a good quote.
I’m driven, goal oriented, and a serial entrepreneur – from high school, when I started my own web design service, to when I dabbled as a photographer a few years ago. I am determined to be my own boss full-time one day (AKA a stay-at-home Husky mom), but right now, I’m a Hiring Manager for a worldwide corporation with a sweet side hustle. I have had a camera in my hand since I was a kid, chasing my cats around to take their photos. While I love taking photos of my family & friends, my real passion is graphic design! I love to pour myself a glass of local sweet wine and hammer out some awesome branding deets.
As I began my recovery from a serious bout of depression, I start posting my realizations and reflections on my Instagram wall. As it turns out, my thoughts spoke to my tribe! I am motivated to inspire others to live their best life whether that means traveling more, taking control of their mental health, or just shaking off a bad day. Life is too short to be bogged down by things that don’t matter!
When I’m not busy working on my blog, editing, or exploring a new city, you can catch me Netflix binging on the couch with my handsome hubby, Michael, hunting for my next Rae Dunn piece, or creating items for my ever-evolving printable shop!
I created this blog to document our travel adventures, our sweet pup Sassy, and my mental health journey, and I’m so glad are you are.
