Fearless and curious, Emma lives by the motto “what’s the worst that could happen?” when embracing each new adventure, honed her unerring ‘grace under fire’ working with high-powered politicians, will bust a move anytime, anywhere, no booze required, lauds herself a perfectionist in all things, except arts and crafts — hold the popsicle sticks and glue, please!, confesses Halloween is her secret favorite holiday due to her extreme costume party dedication, feels quite confident her rescued Maine Coon, Truman, is destined for celebrity status, easily imagines herself as a professional athlete … and a Broadway triple-threat, finds nothing more calming than the smell of a horse barn, has kept a journal since she could write, and credits her spirited nature and mental toughness to years of performing and competition in team sports.

Hailing from small town Indiana, Laura quickly fell head over [very cute] heels for Chicago. Known for her sunny disposition, she brings a cheerful attitude to any situation, embraces every opportunity to throw a shindig, “The Bachelor” finale included, describes herself as a perfectionist with a sense of humor, believes a long run or a pedicure are the best stress relievers, admits to being a kids’ party aficionado from her preschool teacher days, surrounds herself with stacks of magazines to keep up with wedding, fashion and interior design trends, declares champagne, a good laugh with girlfriends, and a vase full of flowers are the best mood boosters, and confesses she doesn’t have a favorite color but rather a serious love affair with certain color combinations– navy and white is always right!

Wrap It Up’s Words to Live By…

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
