Lauran Armbruster

When we were little, we used to vacation in Fairmont, BC from Moose Jaw every summer for weeks at a time. We learned very quickly that the mountains were the escape. To be at utter peace, find yourself a mountain. Both my sister and I since then have been fixed on the mountains, wanting to be in them, near them, around them. To me it is still the same. There's no worries about work, life, people. It's you and nature. Big, rocky, beautiful nature. Something that looks like it is art on a wall because there's no way it can be real but yet there it is, right there in front of you. The sight of the mountains has the same feeling as coming home and that's coming from a prairie flat MJ girl, born and bred.

A few of my favorite hobbies: Farmers markets, yoga, stand up paddleboarding, hiking with friends, finding local shops and stores in any new place, trying to be a solid plant mom (sometimes failing)
