Showing You...Myself

Let me start by saying how weird it is to try describe yourself.  My name is Katie.  I live in the southern part of Illinois.  I teach middle school by day and leap small buildings in a single bound by night (ha!).  I'll be 30 this year.  I love (in no particular order) singing, history, giraffes, reading, and Jesus.  I love to take pictures, but don't love having my picture taken.  (Which is probably how I ended up getting behind the lens in the first place.)

I feel a little like the only single girl in the world.  I know this isn't actual true, as there would be no need for this event otherwise.  It's just that I am at the age where my friends are getting married and having babies, and I would be happy to just meet a good, Christian guy for coffee (well, hot chocolate for me, as I have never learned to drink coffee!).  I love to laugh and I have a definite music obsession.  I also love to watch movies or read.  I feel like I am pretty honest about myself here on my blog.  It's a place where I can write and through which I have "met" a lot of great people. 

I love where God has brought me so far, and I really was cautious about doing this particular "Show Us Your Life."  I mean, this is a lot more personal than what my kitchen looks like.  But, I just figured, "Why not?"  After all, this year is all about adventure...


  1. Take a look at my Brother in Law and let me know if you are interested in talking to him...

    He teaches too (Kindergarten), loves Jesus, and likes Starbucks but doesnt drink coffee either! Ha! He is great and you are cute! Just leave your email on my blog if you want him to contact you. Where in IL are you? We are in Bowling Green, KY.

  2. I was going to post you myself, but I didn't know how you'd feel about it. I looked through a few of them, and I like this one:

    Check out his blog.

  3. Pretty picture! I wish I could look that good in a picture...

  4. You are too sweet, Missy! I hate having my picture taken, but did manage to get this one over Christmas!

  5. Well I'm going out on a huge limb here but I've been reading your blog and thought this might work out. I have a brother in law in St.Louis Missouri that is an auditor. He has just recently stopped traveling so much with his job so he actually has some time to date. He is a Christ follower and comes from a sweet family (by golly they are my in-laws after all). He's in his mid 30s and enjoys working out, watching sports and gaming. There isn't a doubt in my mind that he would be an incredibly devoted husband and wonderful father (he's wonderful with my one year old twins) so I hope someday he finds a wonderful woman. I wish I had a blog so I could post to Kellys SUYL post. If you are interested send me a note and I'll get you some pics and tell you more about him before I set up any introductions. BTW I'm a teacher also but currently staying home with my twin girls. Born and raised in St.Louis but currently living next door to "The Mouse" in Orlando. My email: sadieinorlando"at"gmail"dot"com
    All the best to you in your search, Amy
