Hey there! I’m Katy. It’s wonderful to be here and I’m so happy you’re here too!

This is my corner to share what inspires and motivates me, and I hope that someday, something I write does the same for you.

Back in 2013 I ran a food blog called Tasty Little Crouton, but completely abandoned ship when I started a highly selective management training program at my company. That was a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience that I wasn’t willing to miss, and because it would more than double my working hours in 2014, something had to give. That “something” was TLC, as I affectionately called my sweet blog.

Now, a few years later and probably not much wiser, I’m about to pop out my second kid, and there’s all sorts of fun chaos to cover. My daughter, B, is almost two, and baby boy (we call him KJ for now) will be here in September. We just moved from a two-bedroom apartment downtown to the suburbiest suburb ever, an hour away. Hello new house, hello DIY projects! Oh, and my mom moved in with us. Over the next year, we’ll be working on building her a granny flat in the backyard. Oh, I also lost my job at 6 months pregnant. What’s next in that arena is anyone’s guess. (But seriously, if you know, will you please tell me?)

This is my space to explore and share opinions and experiences in… whatever. TLC was a great little space, but honestly I felt boxed in at times. My interests are so much vaster than food (although I do love food, experimenting with recipes, and sharing them with my family). With this blog, I’m excited to write about work, finance, travel, adventures, motherhood, and yes, food.

I’m bursting at the seams with excitement about writing again. I hope you enjoy my little corner of the blogiverse!

xo, Katy
