With so many new readers popping up {yay!} I thought it would be fun & appropriate to do a refresher about me post.

Hi. I’m Kate!

kate franco

  1. I’ve never lived anywhere but California.
  2. I hate leafy foods {i.e. arugula, mint, basil if it’s not chopped up, etc.}
  3. I am pretty petite {5’3″} and love heels, even though I have NO coordination. I trip and/or fall a lot.
  4. I work in merchandising for the home/furniture division of an e-commerce company; it’s a job that keeps me veryvery busy.
  5. I believe that I have become a much more positive person in the last year. But, I still consider myself a realist, not an optimist.
  6. My biggest dreams are to own a home and to open up a store.
  7. I have a great big complicated amazing family.
  8. I believe in surrounding yourself with people and things that inspire you.
  9. I like to make things pretty.
  10. I am great at making lists and planning.
  11. Overachiever.
  12. I watch too much TV — especially crime dramas.
  13. I have Crohn’s disease.
  14. I get my craftiness from my mom.
  15. I think it’s important to be liked; I can be a people pleaser.
  16. I am pretty generally inarticulate. I’m really self-conscious about saying “like” too much. I’ve managed to remove it {mostly} from my speech, but it seems to have been replaced with, “um.” Not a great choice either.
  17. I don’t believe in fairytales.
  18. I drink jack and coke.
  19. I’m high-strung at work but mellow everywhere else.
  20. I love passionate people.
  21. I’m an old 28.

LOVE the photo Kate! It’s amazing! Reminds of the ANTM when they do the natural close ups…

What a lovely photo of you. And I liked the refresher & the chance to learn about you again. How quickly we forget things we think we know about our blog friends!

Kate, I love this! That is a beautiful photo of you, too! I love that you said you’re an ‘old 28′ because I am definitely an old ’24’!
