I’m changing things up a bit here around Lauren Inspired starting tomorrow.
As a new Mom I suddenly became aware of the lack of resources for mothers in our area, Reno-Sparks, Nevada.
When pregnant we weren’t given any help finding a child birth class. We had to research the hospital’s calendar to find out where and how we were supposed to take one.
A month before the baby was due we had no clue how to get our car seat inspected.
Once the baby came I wanted to meet other mothers. There was no resource to find mother’s groups.
Trying to find a fun event to go to involves combing through hundreds of irrelevant events tailored for tourists and college kids.
Other than a dying website ran by our local newspaper, there is no central hub of information for mothers. I had to dig through the bowels of the internet to discover the Moms club I now belong to and we never did get our car seat inspected (not for a lack of trying).
I’ve decided Lauren Inspired is going to fill this void by becoming the Reno-Sparks Mom. I will continue blogging like I have for the past three years but there will also be local events and resources included. Don’t be alarmed come November 1st when you come to visit and see a new design with the new name. It’ll be practically the same, just with a few more added elements tailored for Moms in Northern Nevada.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I would have never thought it possible to go on this new adventure without the support and encouragement I receive from my readers. Now lets go make some Mommas' lives easier!
P.S. Incase you're wondering what Reno-Sparks is/ means, they are two cities in Northern Nevada. Reno, being the main city and Sparks, a neighboring city right alongside it (where I live). Here's a map.
