Elloh!... I said Ello.

Can I just say that I am thrilled that there is a blogging challenge starting today?  I have been so conflicted over blogging lately.  I really want to blog more often, but at the same time I feel like I have nothing good to write about.  The North East Blogger's Network August challenge came just it time!  Today's topic is simple.  All I have to do is introduce my self.  So here it goes:

My name is Kathleen Michelle, but please call me Katie! Yeah, don't call me Kate if you want me to be your friend.  I am a less than typical 26 year old girl who appreciates all the simple things in life. I am pretty straight forward, and I have been told that I am a "go -getter" (whatever that means).

In writing, my life looks pretty plain. I dropped out of college before getting a degree.  I attended Bible College for three semesters before calling it quits. My husband and I planned our small private wedding in about 2 weeks and no one calls me "momma".  I like to think that I am crafty, but I am really just good at hording craft supplies.  So if you came here looking for "pinspiration" than you came to the wrong blog.

I share my home with my geeky husband,  my hyper puppy, and two cats.  I guess you could say that I like fuzzy things.

I started this blog back in 2010 as a way to document my 101 in 1001.  That ended up being overwhelming and I didn't keep up with it like I should have.  I still loved writing and my husband encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to make new friends.  This blog keeps me encouraged and inspired! And more importantly than all that, I have found amazing friends. I have people who genuinely care about me, who encourage me, and who are there for me! That's what makes this experience so awesome!
