The Holidays are Coming…

Hello my darlings,

It’s been two months, almost to the day, since my last post. Life has been up and down in that time, with a lot of sideways thrown in for good measure. Right now it feels like the holiday season is barreling down at us with no sign of slowing down. Everyone told me that time goes by faster as you get older, but did you know they were right?! It’s terrifying. And the emotions and stress that come with the holidays don’t actually ease up either, so it becomes one stressful, scrambling race for time.

Hello beautiful souls,

As much as I want to keep the blog current all the time, things are going to be sporadic for quite some time yet. I’m doing so many things that I love, but this season is so ridiculously hard. Adaline just turned two last week and apparently this development stage comes with a lot of tantrums. She’s doing her best though, and so am I, and that’s what matters… I think. Continue reading →

Revamp 2.0

Hello stardust beings,

I’m drowning in the insanity that is making a website. I had some issues go down with my hosting services and lost some of my backups, so I’m redoing a lot of things from scratch. Which is… fine… since I needed to add/change some things around the website anyways, but still quite frustrating. Right now I’m archiving a lot of past posts, which is why there is very little content to look at, but things will be back up and normal soon.

July Thoughts

Hello lovelies,

I haven’t written much lately, mainly because I’ve been drowning a bit in writing-intensive classes and I’m still finding my balance between work and fun writing time. But I wanted to hop online this week so that at least I don’t let the month go by without posting something. This might be a bit disconnected, but that’s kind of the way my brain is working right now, so that’s what you get. Continue reading →

Parenting Processes

Hello everyone, all you fanciful dreamers!

Everyone talks about how you just figure it out as you go when it comes to parenting. Everyone has advice to give and everyone has their own process and I find the whole thing quite fascinating, to be honest. Being pregnant, I very much had no idea what was going on and certainly no inkling of what I was getting myself into. I was prepared for parenthood to be difficult, but nothing prepares you for the real thing. As we all do, I had visions of how I was going to act, what I was going to do, etc., etc. I’ll just tell you right now, I am in no way the mom that I saw myself as when I was pregnant!

Hi everyone! 

I’ve missed writing for the blog over the last month. I was doing so much work behind the scenes and the house-buying process went absolutely haywire. In trying to deal with all that, I also fell behind on schoolwork, which is why I’m not 100% back to normal yet. Also, what’s normal? Continue reading →

A Year of Pandemic

Hello lovely humans,

Before we dive in today, I wanted to announce that I’m going to be starting to write a monthly email newsletter! Everything is still coming together, but I’ll be sharing the sign-up links very soon. The emails will include personal notes from me, recommendations, resources, and exclusive works of fiction by yours truly. I’m excited about this new project and hope you’ll join in! Thanks!

Looking Back

One year ago, I was trying to adjust to a new variant of life, a new normal, you could say. The Best Husband had just gone back to work after six weeks of furlough because of the pandemic. Texas was trying out its first reopening plan and we were still hopeful that by the time summer truly hit, we would be back to pre-pandemic life.

nanowrimo: april 2021 edition

Hello fellow dreamers,

At the beginning of the month, I mentioned that I was going to use Camp Nanowrimo as a way to improve my blogger presence in 2021. I listed out 30 tasks that I thought were reasonably simple with the goal of having a much more cohesive look and a better plan for the future of the website and my platform as a writer overall. I’m very attached to my little corner of the internet and was very excited to make it even better and even more useful.

Reading in 2021

Hello beautiful dreamers,

My content is usually all over the place, however I am making an attempt to add more reading/book related content to my blog posts. Especially considering that I am in the process of making a career out of writing and books, it seems appropriate.

Reading was something I did obsessively as a child/teenager, but slowly fell out of the habit during college. And now, of course, running around after a toddler takes up a lot of my day, so reading doesn’t always fit into my day. However, the daydreams never stop, so I always come back to my books.

Welcome Again

Hello lovely humans,

Blogging has been kind of hit or miss over the last… six? months. I’m unsure of a lot of things, but one thing that I know right now is that I am definitely not the same person (at least not on the inside) that I was a few years ago. Even one-year-ago me was different. In light of that, and also because I just rewrote my online bio things, I wanted to share a little about myself. So here are 25 things to know about Katharine.
