Getting to know Katie

It’s been awhile that the blog has been up and running and I thought I’d do a post dedicated to telling everyone a little bit about myself!

  • What’s your name?

Katie!

  • What’s your favorite color?

Lime green is definitely my favorite color but I am a lady that LOVES colors, especially water colors. The more color, the better!

  • Do you have siblings?

No, I’m an only child, but I grew up very close with my family and friends.

  • What kind of legacy do I want to leave behind?

The kind of legacy that I’d like to leave behind is one filled with total love and joy! I want all the people that I touch to feel that way. I want to continue to work to help and positively influence all the people that I can my whole life. I want to pass those things on to my children some day when I have them, too!

  • Biggest fears?

My biggest and ongoing fears are of the dark and letting the people that I care about most down or disappointing them… One is silly and one is a lot more philosophical!

  • Greatest accomplishments?

My greatest accomplishments so far have been becoming a registered nurse and then getting my first nursing job which was in the ER. I’ve worked in ERs ever since! My boyfriend and I buying out first home almost 2 years ago was a HUGE deal, too. We love our home and our pups.

  • Someone who inspires you?

There are so many people in my life who so greatly inspire me, but my greatest inspiration is my mom. She is the happiest, most positive, most loving and caring person in the world, no matter what is thrown at her. She’s immensely knowledgeable and hardworking. She and my dad have been here for me through everything in my life and I could never express my gratitude for them in a way that they deserve.

  • Where is the place you feel most at peace?

The place that I feel most at peace is being with my family and anywhere on any kind of water. I love to be on the river, on lakes, or at the ocean. Being with my loved ones and by water is where my soul feels whole.

  • Favorite things to do?

My favorite things to do are to be outside, to be with my friends and family (and puppies), to travel, to learn new things, work at my mindfulness practices, read and write, listen to music and sing at the top of my lungs, watch murder mysteries, take long walks, and have a couple alcoholic beverages with my girlfriends J

  • Favorite season of the year?

This one is really hard for me! I love all the season for specific reasons. Fall is an apple cider, bonfire and pumpkin patch time to spend with friends and family. It’s my time to squeeze in the last of all my outdoors time before it starts to get really cold where I live. Winter is an amazing opportunity to rest, recharge, and grow. Spring is a time to continue growth and for new beginnings! But my very favorite time of the year is summer. The warm weather gives me, my friends, and family the opportunity to boat, camp, and spend all kinds of time outdoors which is SO good for my soul! 

  • Favorite food?

Gluten free chips and some queso and salsa (and a margarita– my favorite drink)! I am a sucker for Mexican food- I could really eat it every day!!

Well now you know just a little bit more about me and I’m enjoying getting to know just a little bit about all of you!

I hope you guys are having the greatest Monday and continue to have a wonderful week!

Xoxo,

Katie
