FYI-I did NOT write the following piece.¬† I know what you are thinking, she just started this blog and is already ripping off other people’s writing ūüôā¬†A friend of mine had posted this on her Facebook a while back and it really struck a chord with me.¬†I read through it a couple of times and¬†so much about it rang so true. ¬†And as I debated whether or not to start this whole blogging thing, I kept thinking¬†about this piece.¬† It played into a lot of my decision in going ahead with blogging, believing that it is not weak to be REAL.¬†So thank you Dan Pearce for¬†helping to open¬†MY eyes about the disease called Perfection.¬†¬†

Gratitude Attitude

Written by Katie. Posted in Thankful

Since November is the month of giving thanks, and since some days are harder than others to find my gratitude attitude, I will consciously make an effort to post something for each day of November that I am most thankful for in my life.  Since it is already November 9th, I will make a list of 9 things I am thankful for to catch up. 

Here I Am

Written by Katie. Posted in About Me

OK,¬†I am officially a blogger.¬† I’m a little scared. A little nervous.¬† A little excited.¬† But as life gets crazier and crazier these days I wanted to make sure I was documenting all of the ins and outs of the good, the bad, and the ugly as our life continues to take¬†twists and turns.¬†I’ve been asked a few times by various friends and family to start a blog to keep people posted on the happenings of our lives; especially now¬†that life¬†as we know it is currently¬†being redefined. So…I¬†feel like starting a blog may serve as an easy way to keep¬†close friends and family¬†in the loop, especially since things seem to change daily.
