Kate is a mom of two crazy, curly haired girls, wife to a darn cute/overambitious law student/entrepreneur, a part time dental hygienist, and owner/creator of an online children’s/women accessory boutique. I love cleaning dirty rotten teeth, it just thrills me. I absolutely went into the right profession for me! But as much as I love dental hygiene, I’m absolutely obsessed with creating and crafting just about anything I can get my hands on! I love to laugh, and be laughed at, I always tell my husband that I’m the funniest person I know. And it’s a good thing I laugh at myself, or I might hear crickets quite often.
