I’m here!

I want to shout in my loudest voice – I’m here, I’m here, I’m here!

Starting this blog has been on my to-do list for years. Not like, “oh it would be fun to write a blog someday”. I’m actually one of those nuts that keeps a to-do list for everything from groceries to Christmas gifts, to the sights I want to see on vacation and my career goals. And time and time again I found reasons (excuses really) to not get off my ass and just start to type. What would I write about? Would anyone out there actually read? How would I find the time in my busy life? And now, here I am, working full time, married to Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome with a 7 month old cutie we call Bean, trying to keep my house clean and food in our bellies, with a whole lot LESS time on my hands.

Having a daughter has been a game changer for me. I want her to see a smart, creative, funny, strong, nurturing mother. I want to inspire her to be the best self she can imagine. For her to look in the mirror and love the beautiful face she sees looking back. To dream big and not be afraid to take chances.

This blog is a declaration that I’m putting a ban on excuses and regrets and will start living in each precious moment. I’m going to write about our family life – the big milestones and the little moments that bring me joy. If our simple day to day brings followers, I’ll be thrilled, and if not, I’m okay with that too. This is the start of a personal journey I invite the world to witness. I finally have found my voice and have so much to say.

These are my favorite people and the stars of Kate’s Full Plate.
