Kelly's SUYL: Blogger Like Me

If you are coming by from Kelly's, first of all, Hi!  My name is Katie, and I am a 31 (almost 32) year-old, single, middle school teacher.

It's actually pretty funny that this post ends up being my first one in a little over two months.  I'll talk more about my blogging break soon, but I think now's a good time to focus on what I love about blogging.  Through my little corner of the internet, I've managed to "meet" some of the most incredible people, some of whom I have become more than just internet friends with.  It's fun to see that people from all over have been where you are, and I that's especially true when you hit the rarefied air of single and 30+.  I'm probably in a season where I'm more content than I've ever been in my life, but it's a very different season from many of my friends who are married and/or have children.  And I'd say that most of you probably get where I'm coming from.

I promise that I'm going to try to start popping in around here a little more often.  Breaks are good, but so is coming home, you know?  If you've never been here before, look around and stay awhile.  I'd love to know a little more about you.  And if you are one of my dear people, shocked that I'm finally posting again, thanks for just being you and I'd love to hear from you in the comments, too.

Happy Weekend! 


  1. YOU ARE ALIVE....

    And I'll send the remainder in a text later because none of our conversations should be on the internet.

  2. Great to find your blog today as we both linked up via Kelly's Korner.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. I'm really trying to get back into it. I just don't have the amount of extra time I once did to sit down and get a post together.

  4. I stumbled by this blog by accident, and I'm so glad I did (so of course I joined as a follower). It's nice to meet a middle school teacher. I'm a writer, and I'm working on a novel for middle graders, though it isn't finished. I love writing for that age group. As a teacher, I'm sure it can be rewarding and also trying. I had three daughters, and let me tell you there were a few times during those years that seem quite challenging. At 11, they became much braver in what they let come out of their mouths. Many days it drove me nuts, made me pull my hair out (but I still got some left). Other days, I smiled at their coming independence. I enjoyed reading your post. You have a sunny personality.
