Hi! I’m Kat. I am the married mom of three. My kids are newly grown- ages 21, 23, 26, so translated that means that legally they are adults but in reality they are still my babies. In addition to my husband and children, I share my life with an awesome daughter-in-law, two of the cutest grandsons in the world and the most obnoxious but loving dog ever. My family is my world. And when I’m not with them, I love reading, writing, shopping, music and hanging out with my best friends.
I can’t remember a time I wasn’t writing or plotting some story in my head. Writing is what keeps me sane. I am incredibly shy about sharing my work with anyone and that is one of the reasons I decided to start a blog. Stepping out of my comfort zone and facing my fears is important to me.
One thing I realized very early on in my parenting days is that you really need support. While having your parents and siblings around to help out is totally priceless, sometimes you need someone who has gone through what you are going through, or is at that same stage when you are so you can go through it together. It really makes a difference to know that you are not alone and that there is a person out there who KNOWS how you feel because they are experiencing it too. A few years ago, my family underwent an amazing transformation and my hope is that by writing about my experience, it will not only help me process everything but maybe help others who are going through the same thing. Help them to know that they are not alone.
My middle child, Kris, came out as transgender in 2011. Within months Kerri became Kris and our lives changed forever. In the beginning it was chaotic and confusing but as the dust tries to settle, we have found our way to a new normal. It has bonded us as a family. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
My goal is to grow as a person and a writer, make some new friends and hopefully not bore you to tears on the way!
