My name is Kathryn, but you can call me Katie. I was raised as the only child of two right-brained psychotherapists. I’m married to Dane, a creative (but incredibly logical and practical) Viking guy from Florida who balances out my ADD and surges of emotional intensity. We have a little girl, Kora, and currently live on a farm that was started by my great-grandparents in the middle of Nowhere-On-The-Outskirts-of-Extremely-Small-Town Mississippi. Sometimes things fall apart out here in a manner reminiscent of the Chevy Chase film, “Funny Farm,” but we love it anyway. I’m a Southern girl who’s not really all that Southern (though my family is). While I am working towards my Masters degree in English and Creative Writing, I am also teaching Zumba classes, writing my own material and trying to get people around me into healthy lifestyle changes (not such an easy thing in Mississippi). I love movies, books, the arts, healthy cooking, and people watching. I am a Christian who is not afraid of feelings, and I dabble in fiction. This blog is about being real, and not worrying about the labels making sense (as you can see from my bio, my labels don’t make too much sense–bet yours don’t either!) I hope you’ll follow me as I write where I am.
