Lauren grew up in coastal Florida but always dreamed of living somewhere with wide open spaces. She started her blog, La Petite Fashionista 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 Southwestern 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.
We're honored to be the third generation to live at "the farm". We had our dream wedding and were married on the farm (lovingly named Moon Ridge). We can most often 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 our thrift store adventures.
We started La Petite Farmhouse to share our journey of simpler living out in the country. It’s a place to document our rustic modern farmhouse build & a guide to making more out of life! We're looking forward to their next adventure as newlyweds.
