About Me!

Hi! My name is Laurel! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out THE HIVE!

Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas!

My platform is mainly fashion, food, faith, family, furniture, fiesta, and fun focused!! So if you are interested in any of those things, I hope you find something here that inspires you!

This blog originally started as a place to post updates about my paper company, The Lovely Bee. When I started out, I didn’t expect this to turn into the lifestyle blog and personal creative outlet that is has since become! I’ve enjoyed the direction that THE HIVE has organically taken over the years and hope you enjoy the journey with me!

A quick little tidbit about me–

I married my best friend Price in 2009 and since then, we have added three beautiful babies to the mix! We also have a big, shy mutt, two quirky little pocket beagles, and a spunky lab to keep things really exciting!

 THE HIVE (which includes @laurel_at_thehive on Instagram) is my full time job now (along with motherhood, of course!) So when you shop through the links in my posts, or when you stop into a business you saw on my page and tell them “I heard about you from Laurel!,” you have NO IDEA how grateful I am for that! That helps my little business here keep going!

I love Jesus, I’m six feet tall, and I’m an enneagram 2 (but with such a high 9 that, for a season, I thought I was a 9!) I modeled in high school (and got to do a runway show for Betsey Johnson! XO!), lived in England after college where I worked as a waitress and barista, then worked as an interior design assistant and food blogger when I returned. In between all that, I got married, started paper company and subsequently a blog, and had kids! So my love for fashion, furniture, food, fun, family, fiestas and faith all stem from those things 🙂

I’m honored that you’ve chosen to stop by today! Thank you for the company. 🙂 Have a wonderful day and please check back often! XO!
