Kate. Truthfully, it’s Kathryne, but I decided “Cookie and Kate” has a nice ring to it, like cookies and cream. Honestly, you probably wouldn’t remember how to spell my first name and I’m ok with that. So hello, my name is Kate.
I’m writing this post from a couch in my light-filled second floor apartment, which overlooks green trees covered in fledgling leaves and the rooftops of cozy college homes in Norman, Oklahoma. I live here with a silly black-and-white spotted dog named Cookie. Cookie is an ornery little girl who wouldn’t get away with everything if it weren’t for her floppy, mismatched ears, big brown eyes and funny raccoon-striped tail, which is going thump-thump-thump against the cushions. Hello, Cookie.
I’m attempting to make some ch-ch-changes in my life, and I’m trying to set my priorities straight: to spend time doing what I love, and to let go of the rest. Easier said than done, but hell, I’m trying.
My hope is for this blog to help me reconnect with two of my long-lost loves, writing and photography. My second goal is to discover the underlying themes in my latest interests and to share what I’ve learned with you*, because I don’t want to hoard all the good stuff for myself. I do hope you’ll join me as I explore photography, design, nutrition, plant appreciation, bicycles and whatever else tickles my fancy. Enjoy!
Here’s my Cookie on Monday:
