Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Tour Through Blogland

_DSC0461 A fun prompt has been passed between bloggers. I'm honored to be next on this Tour Through Blogland train! My lovely friend, Emily, passed the torch to me and I'm excited to share with you a little bit about my blog process.


What am I working on now?

I'm generally working on several things at once. Currently, I'm editing photos from our adventures this past weekend and preparing a recipe post.

How does my work differ from others in its genre? 

This question stumped me when I first read it over. I feel that because blogs (generally) come from one singular voice, they are all just a little bit different. My voice is distinct. It's me. It is a culmination of my experiences and the people who have helped shape me into who I am becoming.


Why do I write/create what I do?

I have this blog to record memories, challenge myself creatively, and (surprisingly) help me work through challenging times. I have found encouragement through reading other blogs and I think it's so amazing that I am able to do that as well.


How does my writing/creating process work?

Oh boy, I could be much better with blog organization! I don't work with an editorial calendar, but I'm realizing I probably should! I think through each month for events/trips or visitors and remind myself to bring our camera! Generally, if it's an excursion-related post, I'll curate and edit the photos in Photoshop then create the post based off of the edited images. The photos kind of dictate what I write about.

Recipe posts are a bit more planned because it takes time to document while cooking.

I will begin drafts and save them. Sometimes they become posts, but sometimes they just stay scattered thoughts (that could be used in the future).

My process is a bit messy and I don't create quickly. I'm always in awe of people who blog everyday! (Maybe it's that editorial calendar...hehe) It takes me a couple of days to take photos, edit and write. My husband is my proofreader and Photoshop tutor extraordinaire. He helps me a lot with the final details.

Several people reached out to us prior to moving to Nashville; offering to go to lunch/coffee, Rebecca being one of them! The people here are so generous. Rebecca is honest, funny and I've really enjoyed getting to know her and I know you all will too! (How beautiful does she look in her wedding dress?!) :-)
