My name is Kate and I live in Northeastern Ohio. I often get asked why I live here. There are 20 reasons I live here and that is what my blog is about, my family.
I am married to husband, Dave, and we have two boys that are the love of my life, Colin and Ryan. When you add my parents, two of my sisters and their families (one sister and her family lives in Philadelphia) and Dave's family, there is nowhere else I would rather be.
Colin is my oldest boy, and he loves to read. He has a dry sense of humor and can make me laugh about his observations on life. We have hit the teen years with him, and I am buckling my seat belt for what I have heard can be a bumpy ride. So far, so good. I love spending the day with him and hanging out.
Ryan is our other child and he is 5 1/2 years younger than Colin. Most people wait for the perfect time to have their first child. Not us, we waited for the perfect time to have our second child. As the saying goes, there is no perfect time to have a baby, but we did get one of the most perfect kids in the world. Not perfect as in easy, but perfect as in just what we needed. He challenges me every day and nobody can push my buttons like he can, but he is so sweet and kind. He brings life to our house.
I do have a job outside of this life, but you will never see me write about it. I have been in sales for my whole career and have sold everything from paper to packaging machinery. You will also never see a picture of my kids. I think they deserve a little bit of privacy, and there are just enough crazy people to freak me out about putting that info out there.
My blog is called "One Third Acre Woods" because, wait for it, we live on a heavily wooded lot that is 1/3 of an acre. It is our little corner of happiness. Feel free to join me for the good, the bad, and the funny. I would love to have you along for the ride.
