I like to read, cook, crochet, watch terrible tv, travel, take pictures, play with makeup, run, do outdoorsy things, drink wine and diet coke, and eat indian food (well, FINE, I pretty much eat ALL food). There are a lot of other random factoids here and here and here and here.
I write because I want some sort of a record of our life, but I'm not so good at keeping up on regular documentation (weekly pregnancy posts, quarterly letters to the kids, etc.) I tend to write about whatever strikes my fancy at the time, so if I'm on a health kick you might see a bunch of Couch to 5K posts, and if I'm on a makeup kick you will see a lot of subscription service and product reviews. I like to make lists with unattainable goals. I also like to complain about my mother in law.
I write because I LOVE getting to know people I wouldn't know otherwise. Now that I'm old and married and a mom, I don't get out and make new "real life" friends the way I used to. I love getting emails (diniwilks at gmail dot com) or comments, it really makes my day. You can also use that email address to find me on goodreads. I go by @lauradiniwilk on twitter, pinterest, and instagram, and ldini79 on gems with friends and similar iphone games. Basically, I use social media to be social, so feel free to find me wherever and come say hi.
