About Me

Easter familyHey ya’ll! My name is Katie. Well my real name is Katherine, but my parents wanted to make my life complicated and give me a nickname, Katie, and then never call me Katherine. That’s a story for another time.

Anyways… I live in Castroville with my husband, Daniel, my two Mexican Vanilla munchkins, Kapri (2) and Ezra (3 months), our two rescue pits, Spartacus and Sura, and four baby chicks, Smokey, Duck, Arlo, and Rango on our little three acre misfit farm.

I was once a marketer, but now I am currently a first grade teacher. My husband is also in Education and coaches football and power-lifting. Daniel and I met way back when at the ripe age of 18 and 22. It’s  been a crazy, eventful, roller coaster of a ride. We have brought two perfect, God-given, blessings into this world. Being a mommy is THE most amazing thing. I thank God every day for this life he has given me, and trusting me to lead his children.

I’m so glad you are here. I’m new to this whole blog thing. This is just a little glimpse into my Mexican Vanilla life.  Grab a spoon and enjoy yourself.
