So.... Who is Katie Johnson anyways and why should I want to read her blog? Well, that's a GREAT question that I'm really not sure I have an answer to. So, how about I start by telling you what I'm not.
I'm not a super-human mom.
I'm not a creative DIY-er who will impress you day after day.
I'm not someone who can tell you how to make you and your family members find "wellness".
I'm not an outgoing social butterfly.
I'm not super opinionated about much of anything.
I could take or leave traveling.
I don't like to cook. (thank gooooodness my husband picks up my slack in the kitchen!)
Ugh, I sound so plain and boring, right? Yep, pretty much, but I prefer to use the word "content" over "boring. :p I guess I'm just happiest when I'm living the "mediocre" life. I don't want much, I just want to be happy and content right where I am in this moment of my own personal journey called life. Are you bored yet, or shall I go on? :p
How about I tell you what I am...
I am proud of my small-town-Montana-girl roots.
I am the small town girl who graduated and left to go experience the "real world" ...aka... a big city. (I quickly realized my personal need for the beautiful sound of silence)
I am a NICU nurse.
I am a wife to a very handsome husband.
I became a step-mother to two young boys (5&8) at the ripe old age of 25.
I am a mother to two young ladies.
I am a part a diverse household.
I am continuing to learn about the world we live in through the minority status of my household each and every day.
I'm have a side gig that I get to work from the comfort of my own home.
I am quiet by nature.
I am socially anxious.
I am a hard working person who won't give up on anything I put my mind to.
I am thankful for the upbringing I had.
I am a child of God.
I am learning as I go.
I am a homebody.
I am a natural optimist who wants to find the best in everyone and every situation.
So..... Perhaps you see a snippet of your own life in the midst of what I am and am not?! Maybe you want to understand how someone could live a boring life and still be happy? Maybe you want to see if you have anything in common with another step-mom? Maybe you want a glimpse into the world of a racial minority through the eyes of a mother? I don't know, but if you want to read along with me as I figure the bloggin' thing out, then welcome!! I hope you'll find some value through my writing in some sort of fashion before too long. :) Thumbs up for being along for the ride!
