Have you ever had a crazy dream?

I’m not talking about the kind you have when you’re fast asleep. I’m talking about a crazy dream that has the potential to change your entire future—a dream that feels so audacious it borders on impossible.

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I have a crazy dream.

My husband and I started talking about our life together before were even engaged. Our relationship thrived on long walks, and we talked about everything from having children and traveling, to finances and homeownership.

It was on one of these long walks that our crazy dream began to come to life. We tossed around a simple question…

“What would it be like to have no mortgage payment or rent to pay every month?”

Our minds were brimming with curiosity. We started asking more questions and calculating all kinds of numbers. It didn’t take long before we realized that the saving, giving, investing, and spending potential for those extra dollars was enormous!

Right then and there, our crazy dream was born.

We’ve since gotten married and had a baby, but that dream to purchase and pay off our first home is still alive and well. We’re just as excited about it now as we were then, and we’re working harder than ever to turn it into a reality.

About Penny for Your Dreams

Hard work.
Determination.
Ingenuity.
Sacrifice.

Those are what make crazy dreams come true.

You can’t wish upon a star and expect something magical to happen! Life doesn’t work that way. You have to happen to your goals and dreams.

But practically speaking, how do you make your crazy dreams come true?

You make them happen in the daily—little by little, working toward them as you go about your day to day life.

I’m here to help you create a beautiful life on a budget.

and live a life you truly love.

About Me

I married my best friend, Benj, on June 20, 2015. We love dreaming, learning, and adventuring together. We also enjoy eating good food and spending time together in the kitchen.

Our little Jack Everett joined us on December 11, 2016, and he’s been putting smiles on our faces ever since. I’m so thankful to be able to stay home with him.

Caring for my little family and our home bring me so much joy. I’m passionate about organizing and creating systems that work. Routines keep me sane, and budgeting and spreadsheets bring out the geek in me.

I am a
child of God
photographer
writer
sunset chaser
lover of beauty, light, and laughter

I love
the little things
fresh flowers
long walks
quiet mornings
a well-organized home
simple living 

I’m thankful for
time spent in the Word
grace-filled days
joy in the midst of trials
warm hospitality
the love of family and friends

Smiling’s my favorite, and you’ll rarely find me without a good cup of tea or coffee.

I’m so happy you’re here!

xoxo,
Lauren
