It’s weird, right? Introducing yourself? How do you choose how to spin it? I feel like the standard would be:
Hi! I’m Katherine. I married my high school sweetheart and together with our two children, Pippin (4) and Scout (2), I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. At the moment, I am also glowingly gestating my third baby, tentatively nicknamed Roo. Blah blah Catholic, incorrigible reader, lapsed librarian, I drink a lot of coffee.
But you know what?
I don’t really like coffee. (Also, I never, ever, glowingly gestate.)
So how about this:
I’m Katherine and I never mop if I can help it. Before kids, I was a librarian, and I was pretty good at it; now I’m a full-time homemaker, and I’m not very good at it, but I’m grateful for the opportunity, and find it interesting. Here I’ll write about my adventures in motherhood, housekeeping, and faith.
