She’s a spiritual hybrid of the two, which means she loves organic farm-fresh food but still seeks comfort in the Golden Arches when there “aren’t any other choices” (which, strangest thing, always seems to happen more often during Shamrock Shake season). She’s the happily tired mom of a very curious toddling little girl, finds true victory in super good thrift store finds (hello, entire set of Fiestaware dinner plates for $9), and keeps a short-form blog at laurenharkawik.com.
