Cheers, 2016!

It’s crazy that a brand new year is almost here. This has truly been the wildest year of my life. The most beautiful, mentally exhausting, physically demanding, emotionally draining year…but also, hands down the happiest year of my life.

Funny how that works. A year of challenges unlike any others you’ve faced…all to bring you to a place of happiness you’ve never known before.

I’ve re-learned how to trust, how much my mind and body are capable of, how unbelievably powerful faith is, how to remain patient, and how much good there is in the world.

I couldn’t be happier to celebrate 2016 and welcome 2017 at home with my hubby, our sleeping babies, a glass (or more…) of wine, chinese takeout, t.v. movies, and text updates from my family and my besties.

And yes…Sean is absolutely wearing Henry’s tuxedo bib in this picture. You’re welcome. 😉

To our sweet Henry & Emily who are sleeping away upstairs: we only hope that we make you as happy every day as you make us.

2017 – you’re up 😉

Big hugs,

Katherine

“Livin’ on Tulsa Time”

What a year it’s been! Exactly one year ago we began to unpack our lives and settled into a new home here in Oklahoma. The year delivered a whirlwind (both literally and figuratively) of events: our first tornado scare, getting published in TulsaPeople Magazine, learning the two-step together, meeting Trisha Yearwood (twice!), starting a new job, singing our hearts out at more country concerts than we could keep track of, becoming OK Women Bloggers’ Blogger of the Month, weekend escapes into the country, and so much more. Here are just a few of my favorite memories from our 1st year as new “Okies.”

Kind people, great food, and breathtaking landscapes are all too common out here. It’s safe to say that this part of the country has done wonders for our soul.

Here’s to the next adventures yet to come. We’re ready for ya, Oklahoma! Meanwhile, click on over to my post “Oklahoma’s like…”  to read of the senses that this beautiful land delivered us as newcomers just one year ago.
