I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

I am not so sure all this stuff goes together, but this is what I have packed so far. And yes, unfortunately I do wear my Vera Bradley flip flops and Lilly sunglasses around town with my bike gear when we are coming and going from the trails. We are going to Colorado at the end of June and I have to start packing early otherwise I forget to bring everything. Ever since my husband came back from Iraq we decided that twice a year we would shut everything down no matter what is going on and head for the mountains. This year we are going to walk a 10K. I wanted to try to run most of it, but high altitude really sucks when you aren't used to it any more. In case you happen to be in Ouray, Colorado for the 4th of July race we will be the ones coming in last and trying to thumb a ride the whole way.
