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!
