Lauren grew up in coastal Florida but always dreamed of living somewhere with wide open spaces. Lauren started her blog in 2007 and studied fashion merchandising in college. Her first fashion industry job out of college landed her in Wisconsin. She fell in love with the charm of the Midwest and of course.. Kyle! She now works as a blogger & social media consultant where she teaches businesses how to design a mindful marketing strategy.
Kyle was born and raised in Ridgeway, Wisconsin on a 260- acre dairy farm turned managed forest. Kyle grew up working with his mom, dad and two brothers on the farm, learning to respect and care for the land. He credits them to his work ethic and appreciation of the outdoors.
Lauren and Kyle will be the third generation to live in his family’s 100+ year old farmhouse. They had their dream wedding and were married on the farm (lovingly named Moon Ridge). Most often they can be found dreaming up a new project and getting creative; from mixing up craft cocktails to spontaneous road trips around small town Wisconsin, and eternally hoping to stumble upon an Eames lounger on their thrift store adventures.
They started La Petite Farmhouse to share their journey of simpler living out in the country. It’s a place to document their rustic-meets-modern farmhouse renovations & a guide to making more out of life! They're looking forward to their next adventure as newlyweds!
