About the Merry Kate

Hey! I’m Katie. I’m married to an awesome dude – Eric – and I’m a busy mama of two living in South Florida.

I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2008 and moved down South on a whim and a chance. After spending 6 years as a teacher, I decided I was needed at home.

So! I transitioned to a Stay-at-Home Mama to watch my babies grow up from the frontlines. (PS: All the power to you working moms. I know the work involved in juggling both roles.)

Now, Harper and Finn keep me on my toes with school, life, karate classes and all things “Blaze and the Monster Machines”.

I’m always searching for the next slice of happy and can usually be found in the grips of a good book, with a deliciously-scented candle, or finding some way to celebrate the day. Because, y’know, life is sweet.

Want to connect? I’d love to hear from you.
