Spotlight on Lauren:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN THE SPRINGS?
5+ years. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and moved her to w̶o̶r̶k̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶M̶a̶s̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ rock climb. 
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COFFEE SHOP RIGHT NOW?
The @wildgoosemeetinghouse will always have a special place in my heart. To me, it's the modern day Central Perk from Friends- where you see all your favorite people and also look around asking yourself, "I should probably go do work or something" but then keep hanging out.
YOUR DREAM JOB AS A CHILD?
A ballet dancer and a teacher. I'm both... almost. I switched to hip-hop dance in high school and have been growing in that genre ever since. And this summer I'm excited to be launching www.laurencarlsondance.com !

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START MY COSPRINGS?
When I began @my_cosprings a little over a year ago, the goal was simple: to connect people to the treasures of our city. I noticed the Springs was abounding with new businesses and culture, but had no community to bring it all together. So I started an Instagram. It has been so awesome to see how many of you wanted to see this kind of community happen too!

Colorado Springs has a lot of diverse micro-cultures within it, and I'm proud to call it home. Here's to new growth, more support for local businesses, and epic photos that capture the best of the Springs.

My Colorado Springs is a local guide to celebrate, explore, and help you discover the treasures of our city.
