You Know You Better than “They” Do

Earlier this year, my husband and I decided to hire a financial planner.

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

State of Kate Weekly Update

I feel like I ask if this has been a weird week for you too every week. And yet, it was the first thing I wanted to ask you today. Weird is normal, I guess. This past week saw four days of rain in a row, which made it hard to get outside and do … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Update
