We’re Lauren and Glenn *awkward hello* and we’re Through The Woods We Ran. We used to be Still Love based in Perth WA but after Lauren unsuccessfully petitioned for a move to the UK for years (and having finally given up) we visited Lauren’s family in London / Worcester in Jan 2015 and pretty much the moment Glenn’s feet hit the icy mud of Richmond Park and was surrounded by deer – we started looking up places to move to (and a new name because we were over the old one).
We’ve been together for nearly 11 years and married about 3 – during which time we’ve adopted four of the most amazing and spoilt cats in the world. Seriously. We’ll sit on the floor all night watching tv if one of them looks super comfortable on the couch. In turn though – they have to put up with non-stop squeezes and having top 40 songs reworded using their names and sung to them. We said they’re spoilt, not necessarily happy…
Anyway – we’re super stoked you’re checking out our stuff and we hope you like it. And while you’re here – below are some interesting facts about each of us. The first fact should be that we’re both not great at writing interesting facts.
I over-use brackets (a lot)
If I could do anything in the world, it would be to sit at home with my cats. There is a 98% chance I’m doing that right now as you read this
I don’t get empathy. Which makes Lauren mad. Like when Dobby died in Harry Potter and she cried for weeks… I mean, he’s fictional. Who cares?
On the other hand, if an animal dies in a movie I lose my shit. It doesn’t even have to die. When they threw rocks at Harry in Harry and the Hendersons, I think I was scarred until at least my mid-20’s
My favourite things about Lauren are her laugh, and the way her jaw clenches so tight when I’m really trying (and succeeding) to annoy her
My Instagram is @glennweaver and I need to use it WAY more. Lauren is like 800 Followers ahead of me (probably 10,000 by the time you read this)
I can’t read in moderation. Reading > sleep.
I have a mild case of social awkwardness. I have literally run away from awkward situations before.
Cats. Cats. CATS.
If I were a wizard, I’m pretty sure I’d be in Ravenclaw.
Once when Glenn and I were playing Singstar, I laughed so hard I threw up.
If there is an animal nearby, I will be petting it. Or at least looking at it longingly while I attempt to interact appropriately with humans.
At any given point in time, there is a 99% probability that there will be a food stain somewhere on my person.
If you want to see how much better I am at Instagram than Glenn, find me at @laurenjaynehall (not that we’re competitive or anything).
