State of Kate Weekly Update

I feel like it's been almost a month now since I last posted a traditional "State of Kate" update. Perhaps it is time to get back on that bandwagon. Let's go, shall we? The Physical Activity: Soft WIN. I'm slowly working my way back to the activity levels I had before my tumble into the … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Update


State of Kate Weekly Update

Another quiet week here in Katedom. My husband took the week off and has been staycationing. I worked a short week, and have been joining him in the -cationing since Wednesday. It has been nice.

State of Kate: Coming out of the Deep End

As I intimated in last week's State of Kate, I was was struggling. This week was more of the same.

Although, having a heaping plate full of nachos … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Update

Ready or Not, Here I Come

Last week, I did something bold. I made some pretty big changes on my professional website. Mainly, I announced two things: my soon-to-be-launched freelance editorial business (coming to you January 2019) and my eventually-to-be-launched wellness coaching program. That's right, I put it out there for the world to see. Not that I've been quiet about … Continue reading Ready or Not, Here I Come
