Lauren is on the cover of the January issue of Good Housekeeping (on newsstands Dec. 13)!
She shares with the magazine (and us!) her 7 Biggest Get-Happy Lessons:
LIFE LESSON #1: There’s no right way to live.
What brings you joy may not be what you thought would bring you joy — don’t be afraid to shift gears.
Lauren’s childhood was all over the map — literally. She was born in Hawaii, then lived in Japan, where her mother (the daughter of missionaries) had grown up. When her parents divorced, she moved frequently with her dad, at one point living on a houseboat in the Virgin Islands, before landing in New York and eventually Virginia. “My mom was a completely unconventional person for her time,” says Lauren, who describes her late mother as a great dancer, painter, singer and creative soul constantly searching for new projects. Her dad, a charming man with a dry sense of humor, was a writer before settling into politics. “He was very big on fairness and manners and kindness,” she says warmly. “I don’t think I ever heard my father raise his voice.” Witnessing her parents following their own paths had a huge impact on Lauren. “It gave me the sense that there are different ways to live, there are different ways to pursue a career and there are different ways to have a family,” she says. Ever since, she’s been stretching herself to see where her path will take her next.
