My name is Katy. I’m in my mid-twenties, currently living in Westfield, Indiana (the tippy top of the Indianapolis metro area), by way of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Boston, Massachusetts.
I’m married to a wonderful man named John. He’s a pilot. Aviation is a Very Big part of our life. In fact I’d say it’s the biggest influence on our parenting and marriage, for better or for worse (if you’re curious about what it’s like to be a pilot wife, read this). A few of my favorite things include free stuff, college football, flavored coffee creamers, and koala bears. My hobbies include baby wrangling, writing about everything, trying to be crafty, and cooking as long as it doesn’t include too many ingredients or steps.
Most importantly, we became parents to our little girl, Amelia, on September 21, 2012. This blog chronicles our daily life as first time parents, the ups and downs of being an aviation spouse, and the growth of the most beautiful baby girl on the planet, and our relocation to Indiana.
This blog used to chronicle my life as a working mom, but in June of 2014, I was laid off from my job. Currently, I am a freelance writer and hopeful author. I will write about anything if I can research it. When I have a couple minutes to write for fun, I write sometimes very sad, sometimes very happy, short stories. Also, for the first time since maternity leave, I am home with my toddler daughter full-time. You’ll find I don’t call myself a SAHM, because I know my situation is temporary. Eventually, I will go back to work (because we need health insurance). But for now, I’m enjoying being with her all day.
Welcome to our weird and wonderful life.
