About

Hey!

1507187_10101942223410581_1501978050_nI’m Katie and I’m so glad you found your way over to my little side of the world! I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, licensed social worker, student, animal lover, photographer enthusiast, lover of all food,  procrastinator of exercise, avid reader, and dreamer.  I live in a small family friendly town often refered to as “The Loveliest Village on The Plains,” and am most happiest when the ones I love around me are safe, happy, and healthy!

I created this blog in 2011 and enjoyed it but simply was not organized enough to keep it going on top of everything else. But again, On New Year’s Eve, like many other people, I made SEVERAL resolutions and vowed to my family and friends that 2015 would be different (we’ve all been there, don’t judge!) It would be MY year, and there would be no broken or forgotten resolutions this go around. Unfortunately, my all too familiar resolutions to lose weight, exercise more, eat a healthier diet, become more organized, and make more time for myself were soon forgotten come the second week in January or quickly dismissed due to the fact that I was too busy and did not have the time or energy to start such an ambitious task, especially that of re-starting a blog.

Lucky, for you, dear reader, I have recently set my mind to actually fulfilling some of my resolutions for once in my life and am committing myself to this once and for all. I’m tired of broken resolutions year after year. I don’t want to regret or fear the coming of a new year anymore. I really do want to make a positive healthy lifestyle change, lose those darn pounds that keep hanging around, and be more organized. Who wouldn’t want that? I’m tired of always looking at what others do and carry out and wish that it were me who was doing that. I’m ready to pick up the broken pieces around me and put them together one by one, no matter how long it takes me to get there.

So I hope that you will join me on this new-found journey as I set out to blog about tackling my oh so many resolutions  for the year as well as encourage me along the way. Please feel free to share about your own broken resolutions and what you have done about it.  I’m thrilled and excited that you are here and can’t wait to hear from you!

    Have a nice day 😉

  4. Hey – thanks for stopping over! I love to meet new people. I am glad you are giving blogging another go – I’ve so enjoyed my own journey with it.
    PS. Your header photos is adorable!

    • It is addicting! I keep finding new blogs that I love and then trying to keep up with them all each week is almost a job in intself! But I love it and have learned a lot of interesting things and have been challenged to try new things! I’m excited for what lies ahead!
      Glad you liked the photo. I have it sitting on my desk at work too! Always makes me smile.

  5. Good for you for starting this blog! And, don’t worry about not being a professional writer. As long as you can string a coherent sentence together and can connect with readers (which you can), it’s all good! 😀

    P.S. Now I finally get why you called yourself “broken resolutions”!

    • LOL, glad you get it! I’m a work in progress. I’m struggling the most with weight loss and working on becoming more outgoing. I’m naturally a more quiet person so it’s hard for me to come out of my shell, but that is the positive of having a young energetic son, it has forced me to go outside of my comfort zone and meet new parents. I think I’ll always struggle with weight loss though because I love food so much! But I’m working on it! 🙂

    Just saw your comments at my site and I’m thrilled to give you some sort of mental escape to my Hawaii world…I love to think we might bring a little sunshine to other’s days…
    Looks like you’re off to a great start here, and I admire your heart for resolving to change and improve. I already believe in you! 🙂
    I’ll keep you near and follow what you’re up to!

    • Thank you! It’s always encouraging to know others are so supportive.
      Yes, a mental escape to Hawaii on days like this are always welcome! I can’t wait until I get caught up on all your posts! I’m still so excited for you guys that your sons surfed with Bethany Hamilton. How cool is that! I would love to meet her one day.
