We are back with another “P” in the 12 Oaks (pod)cast. Mark and Lauren Hanna moved to the 12 Oaks community from Massachusetts four years ago and have no desire to look back. They are parents to a wonderful little girl and share more about their lives, family, and upbringing. 

Both Mark and Lauren are only children, raising an only child. Listen in as they share insights into what it was like for them growing up and how their friends became like siblings. They also give a bit of insight on what it’s like to raise their only daughter and their ability to provide her with every opportunity. 

They are also fur-parents to the most adorable little Maltipoo. Their dog goes with them everywhere despite Mark’s initial adamant refusal of ever being a fur-parent. They talk about flying with their fur-baby and how Lauren finally got Mark to cede the issue. He refuses to say he was wrong, but he does love that dog.

Mark and Lauren dig deep. From their upbringing in neighboring towns to meeting at one of their first jobs out of college, they reveal it all. Listen in and learn more about your phenomenal neighbors. More “P’s” to come, but as Mark said, you have to Practice Patience.
