Glad you’re here! I’m Kate. I am not super woman (although I’d like to be!) nor am I the Pinterest-perfect queen with a creative eye, who has cute printables and an immaculate home! I’m just a regular woman nearing 30 who loves to write. You’ll find my messy and honest thoughts on the expectations that drown us as women to multi-task – be a wife, mom, friend, mentor, and house keeper! And, aiming to do it all well and not just falling over the finish line in pure exhaustion at the end of the day is enough to put anyone in a mad house! So this is just a bit of how I try (and fail regularly!) to wear all the hats!
My husband and I met at school. He was a pupil and I was the principal’s daughter. It was a very new, small school at the time so I knew everyone. By the time I started attending, he was the babe magnet and I was the don’t-put-a-foot-wrong, irritating girl. Long story short, babe magnet fell for principal’s daughter. We started dating his first year out of school (I still had a few years to go) and got married 7 years later.
Our married life has seen an overseas trip 3 months after our wedding, 3 moves in a year, building a house and various jobs.
Last year, our coveted little one arrived and has brought joy (and tears) to our lives. She is the happiest baby I know and smiles at everyone! She lights up everyone’s lives (and she knows it!)
We live in a house that is way to big for the three of us with our cat and a small chocolate stash.
