Happy Anniversary, Weddings Unveiled!

Almost a year since I first pitched the idea, and after roughly six months of planning and recording, on October 7, 2020 the first episode of Weddings Unveiled with Leah Longbrake debuted at evergreenpodcasts.com and on all major podcast platforms! This past year I’ve had an incredible experience creating this show, meeting so many wonderful…

Imposter Syndrome and Las Vegas Elopements

I first met Bianca Wulwick through this great website for podcasters called Matchmaker.fm. It helps connect people looking to find guests for their show, or be a guest on other podcasts. Her show Please Don’t Kick Me Out primarily focuses on imposter syndrome, a topic I find fascinating and have never really discussed publicly before….

Baby Shamers Part 2

A few years ago I shared my personal experiences with being baby shamed in my blog post titled Baby Shamers. I heard from so many women, and even some men, about their own experiences. Whether single, dating, married, already a mom…so many people have-unfortunately-dealt with someone shaming them. Usually its about not having kids, but…

Our Awesome Engagement Photos (Part 1)!

Back in June my fiance Patrick and I had our engagement shoot with photographer Ken Clunk of too much awesomeness.

Life With Leah* In 2013

A fun, more fearless 2013 is a great (though very Cosmo way) of describing this past year. Entering the new decade, I feel more enlightened and proud of what I’ve both succeeded and failed at. One of the absolute biggest highlights of the year was finding out I’m going to be an Aunt! Khloe will…

Spiritually Fed

It’s easy to get off track when life gets super busy. To get so caught up in your day-to-day life that family, friends, work, relationships, stress…it can consume you and make you forget to put God first. Or turn to him instead of others. I did that recently. I was so caught up in the…

Countdown to 30….Part 2

  Let’s also title this Some Lessons Learned In 30 Years. 1. Mom is basically always right. No, seriously. I can maybe think of one time she wasn’t completely right.
