Just a girl trying to figure it all out, one day at a time.  In light of the craziness of today’s world, I’m just trying to find the beauty and the lightness. Join me for the journey!

2018 Intentions

1024 1024 The Daily Kat

Last year I had to take a lot of time to focus on myself. I learned I needed a whole other level of self-care I had lost sight of; one involving realistic and attainable expectations for myself. I learned I have to treat myself with kindness, patience & forgiveness. And then I had to take…

Jesse & Kelly Got Hitched!

Jesse & Kelly Got Hitched!

Earlier this year, Jesse & Kelly took a trip to Scotland.  And while visiting Kelly’s ancestral lands, Jesse got on one knee and proposed (talk about an iconic proposal)! Then, with the help of family and friends, they planned a wedding in only a couple of months. Some may say that’s crazy, but… It. Was.…

Antojitos Recipe

First round of cooking with Kat starts with something I’ve wanted to try for a while now: Antojitos!  James has been raving about them (specifically the ones from Montana’s) about as long as I’ve known him, but I only got on the bandwagon last year. I never disliked them, but they weren’t my first choice…

World Mental Health Day

150 150 The Daily Kat

World Mental Health Day is a great opportunity to open up those lines of discussion regarding the struggles so many people face on a daily basis. I wanted to mark this day with a site launch and a post, so here it is: Sharing your struggles: helpful or attention-seeking? I guess that’s the continuous discussion when…

DIY Wedding Shower Gifts

This weekend our friends Erica & Myles tied the knot!  It was such an incredible day; a perfect reflection of who they are.  It was filled with genuine moments, and so much laughter.  Congratulations again my dear friends! ♥ Because their ceremony was very unconventional, I was asked to read A Lovely Love Story.  Erica said I…

So, what is this?

849 325 The Daily Kat

Two months ago I left my job.  I was working as a project manager for a web-design/jack-of-all-trades branding company. Essentially, I built websites and was the primary contact with clients. For the most part, I loved the work. But a combination of many things, including my strong desire to prove my unsustainable work ethic, my…
