State of Kate Monthly Edition: March

The overarching theme for March has been change. Whenever I sit down to write one of these updates, I always read through the last month's post to see how much has changed and what might need updating. So much has happened since I hit "schedule to post on February 22nd" last month! The biggest decision, … Continue reading State of Kate Monthly Edition: March

State of Kate Monthly Edition: February

This month has been an exciting one, all told. I don't think that's often the case for February, so I guess it's right we let it have its dues. It feels like a lot of projects and goals moved from the initiation/prep/wouldn't it be nice phase to the we're doing this/this has an end date … Continue reading State of Kate Monthly Edition: February

State of Kate Monthly Edition

Starting this year, I'm going to do something a little different. Along with moving these updates from weekly to monthly, I'm also going to remove any judgement. No more wins, womps, or wobbles.

Because I really wasn't feeling it. In … Continue reading It’s Okay to Take a Moment

I did some kind of activity every day … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series

You Know You Better than “They” Do

Earlier this year, my husband and I decided to hire a financial planner. We were taking stock of our finances and realized that if we ever wanted to actually retire, we should probably do a little more than bury jars of cash in the backyard. And you thought those raspberry bushes were my attempt at … Continue reading You Know You Better than “They” Do

State of Kate Weekly Series

Welcome to December! It's the official countdown to the end of the year. The holiday craziness is in full swing, and we're inundated with saccharine Hallmark movies where all the women seem to be named either Holly or Noelle and their lives are incomplete until they meet a man under the mistletoe. But I'm not … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series
