Lauren Novak

I may have grown up in the ’90s, but I have a genuine love for each decade and its pop culture. Growing up, my pals were Scooby-Doo and the gang, Doug, and even Beetlejuice. I loved to play with Barbies, Polly Pockets and there wasn’t a memory game that I couldn’t ace. These days, writing about nostalgia brought me a love for icons such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton and Betty White. I currently live in Michigan with my husband and our beloved dogs.
