Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
My name is Katie. I live in a teeny, tiny town but I spend a lot of time dreaming of living somewhere larger or at least traveling often. My husband is a small-town boy and both an optometrist and an optimist. He’s also the most patient person I have ever met.

I wrote professionally for a while as a newspaper reporter and later as a corporate communicator before landing in another field of work. I started this blog as a creative outlet and a chance to continue my first love: Writing. (My other loves in no particular order are: My miniature schnauzer, my daughter, my husband, Diet Pepsi, Metallica, feminist literature, sushi, pedicures, and traveling.)
What is your blogging philosophy?
It helps us all get through the challenges of motherhood when we get together, read each other's thoughts, and realize we are not alone!
I have been blogging since...

Hi Katie thank you for the warm welcome. I am so grateful to have the ability to get so much information and help not just for blogging but for life. I just moved from NY to FL and know nobody but family. This move was sudden and  we did not have time to plan. I know so many strong women will have wise words for how to adapt - and thrive. Thank you agin I love your site. All the best April :)
