Hi, my name is Kat. I am a 37-year-old mother, writer, artist and wife. I love staying up late reading on my Kindle or knitting a pair of socks. I love collapsing into giggles with my husband, 5-year-old stepson and 11-month-old daughter over British cartoons. I can get lost painting mixed media and writing in my journal or here. I think a sense of humor is essential and cheese is divine. I am in graduate school and I write for The Alcona Review biweekly. My life changed drastically when I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis at age 30. I can no longer wear high heels but I can certainly walk through life’s ups and downs (with snuggly socks and cute flat boots). I hope you enjoy my blog.
