Meet Laura

Meet Laura: 
On weekends, you'll find me snuggled up with my border collie, Claire and taking on various do-it-yourself home decor projects. Playing Battleship with friends and stalking Pinterest are commonly seen at my home.
This blog will focus on-
Laurel Lane Accessories. My lovely little shop that sells affordable, one of a kind hair accessories that I design.
Infertility. I live with something called unexplained female infertility. Read my story here.
Life. And the funny, miraculous and heartbreaking things that happen along the way.
Love. Maybe finding it :)
Faith. Trying to find my way back to God after suffering the loss of a marriage, an engagement and finding out that I cannot concieve.
Craft Projects. I love diy projects and I hope y'all are inspired by the crafts I share!
My theory on life-
Women are complicated. 
We grow up and change. We run hazardously toward things that make us happy. We fall in love. We have our hearts broken. We heal. We are naive. We are strong. We forgive. We create lives. We live and love outside the constraints of tangibility. 
Women are simple.
We are beautiful.
I love babies and surprises.
Photography is one of my passions, you can see my work here.
You can see my family's photo session here.
You can see my life list here. It's full of my ambitious, dreams and goals.
If you have any questions you can email me at laura.rahel.crosby{@}


  1. Hey cutie! Are you open to button swaps?

  2. Laura,
    Ok, I have to use this opportunity to let you know (what I'm sure many have told you already) that I am so sorry for your loss and that those losses in your life are God's way of making room for His blessings on your life and the plans He has for you that you may not be aware of at this moment. Just remember to continually ask God, even if you've prayed for them time and time again and still nothing. He is waiting for the right opportunity to bless you the way He wants to. Don't give up on what seems like your unanswered prayers. Actively and intentionally give yourself wholeheartedly to Him, your infertility is not permanent in His eyes.
    I won't go into my past struggles, however, I do know that once I gave up on how I wanted my life to be and let God "take the wheel", I was blessed with not only what i had prayed for for so long, I received so much more that I could've imagined! We just have to take that dreaded and hesitant leap of faith and be the vessel for His ultimate plan for you. ;)

    Whew! I usually just keep those thoughts to myself and hope that people figure it out on their own, however, I sense that you have such a sweet and kind heart and soul and deserve everything you want in life. Don't give up! :)

    Melissa :)

    1. Thank you so much Melissa, so sweet of you. I've been focusing on letting go of the things I've wanted for my life to see what He wants for my life. Maybe it's not what I planned but I have no doubt it will be very fulfilling once I allow life to happen in His time, in His way!


Hello gorgeous, I love reading your comments!
