About Me

My name is Katie. I'm from the great state of Georgia. I have a Bachelor's of Arts in History and currently pursuing my Master's of Science in Education with a Specialization in Media. I'm married to my best friend, Ryan, together we have 4 amazing cats, 3 girls, Boog, Mo, and Ted, and 1 boy, Bert. We are both obsessed with video games, which is how we met, working at a video game store. He's currently finishing up his Bachelor's of Science in Physical Education. He's super passionate about being healthy and wants to share that passion with kids of all ages.

I love everything about papercrafting and photography. I love traditional, hybrid, and digital scrapbooking, making decorations, invites, etc. for parties... [I'm the one my friends call for those sort of things ;) ], and my cats, husband, friends and family have learned to love the camera [when I'm around].

I'm a lover of the idea of pocket scrapbooking, last year was my first year of doing it, & I'm hooked. It lends itself well to the kinds of stories and photos I take on a daily basis.

I am addicted to Instagram. Who isn't these days. I practically live on the internet.

I can't remember a time when I didn't play and obsess over The Sims. I've been playing from the beginning and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

I'm the pickiest eater I know. I have serious texture issues that I've never been able to overcome. It's the thing about me that people don't ever seem to grasp. They always ask "so what EXACTLY do you eat?", "you don't like hamburger?? does that mean you don't eat beef?"... and on and on. I've gotten used to being different because of it. I've learned to accommodate for myself, because who else is going to? Let's just say, my list of eats is much shorter than non-eats. I'm working on that. Slowly.

My favorite musicians/bands include [but are not limited to] Incubus [always #1], Johnny Cash, Queen, JT, Train, & Imagine Dragons.

I love quotes & when I read or hear one that I can't imagine forgetting... knowing I will, I write it down.

I overcame my fear of extremely difficult college courses by stepping out of my comfort zone of Math and into the world of History, which included things I was very uncomfortable with, but learned to love, like analysis writings. Then I took it a step further and fell into French and never looked back. I learned that I could succeed even when I feared failure. This showed me that I should have more confidence in who I am and what I'm capable of. So I'm trying to do that now.

Since I started studying French at a University level, I started to think in French & sometimes I have to stop myself from saying what I'm thinking in French, mainly because Ryan has no clue what I'm talking about if I do.

I'm so lucky to have a solid group of friends, who I'm really rather close with. I couldn't imagine my life without them. Since last May they have been my go to people to get cheered up or get out of the house.

So for now, that's who I am.
