Hi! My name is Katie. Welcome to my little home here at the Cup of Tea blog. Glad you stopped by!
So put the kettle on, grab your favorite mug, and read on!
I’m originally from the Buckeye State, the O-H-I-O. Columbus, to be precise. And yes, I become obnoxious during College Football season. I have Midwestern blood running through me, so naturally I hate the Southern summers and love snow. I went to college in Michigan, where I developed a classic, thick accent, thanks to all my friends from Minnesota and Wisconsin.
In 2006, I followed my then-boyfriend to southern California (the Inland Empire, aka IE, aka very dusty and hot), where he was in medical school. We were married in July of 2007, right smack between the first and second year of med school.
In 2010, we moved to the south for my husband’s internal medicine residency. We’ve lived in Durham, North Carolina, ever since, and love it! Can’t picture us moving from here. I suppose it’s possible (nay, inevitable?), because you’ve got to move where the work is, right? Thankfully, my Doctor Husband is still in fellowship training, so we get to enjoy NC for a few more years.
So I say Pop instead of Soda; I know what the U.P. is and I’ll show you where I went to college on my hand; I still refer to freeways as “The” 40 and “The” 85; I sometimes say y’all. I’m a verbal hodgepodge.
We became parents in October 2013 to our precious daughter, Elizabeth. She is such a joy! And, truly, we can’t remember what we used to do or talk about before she came along. You’d better like baby pictures, because if you stick around long enough here or follow me on Instagram, you’ll get your fill. We have a ham.
Thanks for stopping by! If you would like to contact me, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
