Hi! I'm Kate!

I started blogging with LiveJournal back in 2004. In 2005, after my best friend bought a typepad, she gifted me with one, and I've been hooked ever since.

I've been living in Japan for the last two and a half years where I've learned to speak exactly five words of Japanese and how to wield chopsticks with a powerful and deadly accuracy. Okay, maybe not.

My husband and I are currently trying to reintergrate ourselves back into the less than controlled chaos that is American culture after being out of the loop for so long. How bad could that be you may ask? My last cell phone had a green and black screen, and Britney Spears had not yet procreated when I left. You do the math.

Our son, Daniel, was born on May 8th, 2008. He's an amazing, beautiful little boy, and we are so happy to be his parents =)

In the near-ish future, I'm hoping to find a job that doesn't involve me having to ask people to speak clearly into the clown's mouth, finish some more college and begin studying photography. You know, like in my spare time. I also plan on growing a third arm.
