About Me

Hi There,

My name’s Katie and I’d like to welcome you to my blog. If you’re here I’m happy I’ve grabbed your attention! Now that you are here you may be wondering who in the heck I am and what exactly it is that I have to say. Well, I’ll do my best to answer these questions as briefly & clearly as I can.

I’m a normal person out living in the world just like each and every one of you. Of course, there are a few things that probably set us apart, like our backstories, hobbies, interests etc. so I’ll list out a few things that make me, me.

I was born and raised right outside of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas until the age of 8, where I then moved across the country to a teeny tiny town in the Thumb of Michigan. After graduating from High School in said teeny tiny town I then headed over to the West Side of Michigan where I stayed through earning my B.S. in Merchandising and Product Development (Western Michigan University alum over here – Go Bronco’s!) I now reside in the beautiful and yes, very rainy, state of Washington.

Throughout my twenty odd years (I’m a lady, no need to disclose my age), I’ve been a runner, writer, hiker, waitress, college student, softball player, giant orange cat owner, account manager, fashionista, triathlete, military girlfriend, volunteer, and for a very brief period of time dreamer of becoming the next modern-day Beethoven (chopsticks is totally my jam).

I believe in a few simple things like how each day is and should be an adventure, and that the best way to learn a thing or two about yourself is to push your limits.
I believe that a good book and a great heart-to-heart are two excellent ways to open your mind to new thoughts & ideas and that everyone has an interesting story to tell if they find someone that’s willing to listen.

And I believe that no matter how dark & dreary this world can seem sometimes – there is always Good Stuff out there, and that’s exactly where my blog comes in. I’m here to re-tell stories of The Good Stuff because I believe those stories deserve to get told.

So in conclusion, if you do not wish to hear happy stories well then I’m sorry friend but you’ve come to the wrong place (I thank you for visiting). If you are looking to hear about The Good Stuff then feel free to take a look around (and even share a few of your own if you’re feeling extra spunky). I.e.
