Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, glad you could stop by!
My name is Katie and I am a wannabe lifestyle blogger. I am a 30 something who was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am a wife to CJ, mom to Parker & Hadley, and a fur-mama to Winnie. I love taking way too many pictures, trying new food/restaurants, fun times out with friends, evenings in with my family, and a good glass of wine or beer (depends how I am feeling.)
I would like to introduce you to some important people:
My Hubby: Courtney Joseph ‘CJ’
Meet Courtney Joseph, or as most people call him CJ, I call him Hubby. We met when we were seniors in highschool. At the time I was dating his friend, so nothing happened. 5 years later we finally had the talk and decided to give this a go! We got engaged on May 3, 2014 at Devou Park in Covington, KY which has an amazing view of Cincinnati. We tied the knot almost a year later on April 25, 2015 in Cincinnati, Ohio at French Park. He is the most supportive, funny, handsome, loving man I know.
Our dog: Winniferd ‘Winnie’
I had always wanted a dog my entire life. My parents always said I could get one if I took care of our cat at the time for a month.. They both knew that was never going to happen, so I never got the dog I always wanted.
Once CJ and I bought our house in August of 2015 the hunt was on! After several weddings and travel it was time to get serious. I had been looking at many dog pictures to find the right dog. I wanted a small dog, but CJ wanted a big one. We finally found the perfect combination.
Meet Winniferd Fearless, she is a husky corgi mix! She is full of so much energy but brings so much love to our family!
In 2016 CJ and I started trying for our first kid. After about 6-7 months of trying and no results we decided we wanted to seek help. Most people say to wait for one year, but we wanted to know sooner rather than later. In November of that year we went to see a specialist who after some tests recommended insemination.
We were very fortunate on our infertility journey, our first round of insemination took, and we found out on January 13, 2017 that I was pregnant! I was in complete shock due to the fact I had heard it never works on the first try.
After 41 weeks of pregnancy, on September 29, 2018 at 8:29pm our lives changed forever. Meet Parker Joseph!
Little Miss Hadley Marie
On May 8th, 2019 at 6:15 pm we welcomed Little Miss Hadley. She came into the world screaming her lungs off and made her presence known for all to hear. Hadley was born with a ton of hair and still has it.
Little Miss has completed our family and we can’t remember life without her. Big brother Parker is still getting used to his little sister, but loves her!
Follow along on the adventures of Parker and Hadley because I am pretty sure they will be entertaining,
A couple of weeks before Parker was born, our family made the decision that I would quit my job and stay at home with him! It has been one of the best decisions I have made. Yes, some days are more challenging than others, but I wouldn’t trade this time with him for anything.
Living Amidst started in February of 2018 when Parker was only 4 months old. We were now accustomed to our new life together and I felt like I was ready to do something I’ve always wanted to do. This blog is my creative outlet where I get to share my life. I am a wife, mother, women worried about her health, wanting my clothes to match, learn how to put makeup on, wannabe chef/baker, and so much more. My goal is to keep things ‘real’ with you and share the good/bad/ugly.
