Lake Freemen is Laura’s current address so she spends time on the lake with her two big (usually wet) Labradors. They love boating and fetching anything thrown for hours. Labor Day weekend is the annual Carson family three day gathering.   Carson’s of every age spend time playing volleyball and corn hole, riding wave runners, tubing and eating way too much.

 

A student of yoga for more than fifteen years, Laura enjoys yoga retreats and even teaching from time to time.   A great cook, she is known for making amazing one of a kind dishes with random left overs. Through Great Banquet, a Christian three day retreat, Laura has had the pleasure of serving hundreds of folks both physical and spiritual food.
