I’m Katie. I’m a wife, mommy, a health nut, a fierce dog lover, and a passionate fan of football. I love neatness, old things, activism, craft beer, kale, kind people, and Oprah. I hate cigarette smoke, laziness, cold weather, messes, and bad parenting.
I love being a southerner and from Alabama – although I hate our backwards politics. Despite that, I live in a very forward-thinking city and adore being surrounded by good food, art, music, and the friendliest people in the world!
I eat more vegetables than should be humanly possible and I hate fried food.
I believe compassion is the most important quality we can instill in our children and it’s too often under-valued by many parents.
I’m a therapist and one of the lucky few who always knew what I wanted to do with my life. I’m beyond blessed that I get to live out my passion every day! I believe everyone is capable of personal growth and change given the right tools. I just started a private practice and I’m incredibly excited to see where my new career venture leads.
I write like I talk …which results in lots of grammatical errors and overuse of ‘dot dot dot’…I apologize in advance if this bothers you! I post random thoughts, recipes that most people won’t attempt to make, and sometimes my opinionated rants about controversial issues. I am quite sentimental and tend to be overly expressive with my feelings. Being a therapist, I firmly believe that talking about our feelings is a good thing…and I do alot of that through this outlet.
Since having my son I post ALOT about baby stuff. I am trying to get back to regular blogging about other stuff but it’s hard…and let’s face it, having a baby consumes you. But, if you’re a new mom, you’ve come to the right place!
I stumbled on to your site by way of a google search about Leap 4 (Wonder Weeks) and wanted to just say you have a lovely family and I appreciated reading your blog. My son turns 4 months this week and we are heading into some sleepless nights, I’m afraid. Best to you and yours!
Ps It’s nice to hear someone from the South sharing their positive values. 💖 from Seattle.
Thanks! It’s crazy how many people find this post and I wrote it 5 years ago. I still have the best sleeper ever! And yes, not all southerners are bigots! We have quite a progressive city in the midst of a very red state.
