Lauren Thomas began writing her debut lifestyle cookbook, The Modern Hippie Table, after her creative journey as a lifestyle blogger inspired women to feel good in their own skin, reinvent their passion for the home, and to have fun in the kitchen. Whether she's working with flavors in the kitchen or setting the scene for a beautiful evening, Lauren's passion for merging good food and conversation brings people together at the table and can turn an evening into a lasting memory. Lauren lives in south Florida with her architect husband, two teenage children, and Shar Pei pup, Simon. Kristy Horst is a seasoned photographer with an absolute love of her trade. A pro with a critical perspective who has pursued her craft for over 20 years, she spent the bulk of her career as lead photographer at top-tier creative agencies. Now heading up her own photography business, she enjoys the ability to pursue projects that inspire and excite. Kristy lives in Delray Beach, FL, with her husband and a rescued Lynx Point Siamese. When Kristy is not photographing, you will likely find her on the beach enjoying a walk in the sunshine, paddle boarding, and snorkeling the reef behind their house.
