On my heart: Beside Myself

by katherine on September 19, 2012

I normally like to keep things light hearted around these parts, so this is not an easy thing for me to put out there. I’m one blessed wife mama lady…I know that. But there’s something that’s been happening lately that I just can’t shake off. What’s the saying? Actions speak louder than words? Well, if […]


Tip from Kat: Don’t Do This

by katherine on June 7, 2012
