Letting Life Lead
I have decided to do up to two blog features a week.
Next, I am sharing the very first blog I followed on WordPress. There are just some people that you swear were relatives in another life, and Kate of katesurfs.com is one of those people. We share many of the same philosophies and our children are close in age. Her site as grown over the years and it is always the first one I return to when I’ve been away from the blog world for a while. When I’m having a bad day and feeling alone with my Parenting Weird, I know I can always go to Kate Surfs and find my wave again.
About Kate (from her blog):
When I first started this blog, I was amazed to find that people started enjoyed reading about my adventures in baby poo and vomit. So… I kept writing.
My husband and I are from America, but we now live on the Gold Coast of Australia with our two daughters, Margo (b 2010) and Goldie (b 2012). We literally dropped everything in America in 2008 to come here. After only a few months of living here, we discovered that we liked living our lives surrounded by a bunch of friendly Aussies, so we decided that we should do everything we could to stay here.
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I have a masters of education from Bond University and went to Salisbury University for my undergraduate degree, where I studied biology and environmental marine science. I’ve been a vegetarian nearly my whole life and grew up without a tv (thanks mom and dad, even though I hated it while I was growing up). I have been meditating and doing yoga and breathing every day for the past thirteen years through what I have learned (and teach) through the Art of Living Foundation. I am a Know Your Child Instructor as well as an Aware Parenting Instructor. My husband and I surf too, in case you didn’t already figure that out from the title of my blog.
This blog is mostly about my journey through motherhood and life. I’m so happy you’re here and hope you enjoy!
