About Me

Katie A Beautiful Little Adventure

Hi, Iā€™m Katie! Welcome to my little place on the internet. I live in Lancaster, PA with my husband, Ryan, our son Wyatt (born September 2015) and our poodle mix Maggie. I have a degree in English and Creative Writing and am also trained in graphic design. I juggle my time being a new mom and working for a consulting firm and doing freelance design and editing work. 


Ryan and I met online and were married in June of 2013. You can read our love story here.


After a bit of trying, we welcomed baby Wyatt into our home and hearts in September of 2015.


Ryan graduated law school in 2015 and his currently establishing his career. Wyatt is a bundle of cuteness and is teaching me new things each and every day.


I’m your typical thirty-something girl, still trying to figure it all out. I love reading, photography, and jogging. I spend way too much time catching up on celebrity gossip and watching bad Hallmark and Lifetime movies. I’m known to cry easily during movies. I can’t dance but like to pretend to try. I spend too much money on baby clothes and could be satisfied with only eating appetizers for the rest of my life. My mornings don’t begin until after I’ve had my coffee and I prefer my wine cuddled up on the couch with a blanket and Netflix. 


Above all, family is the most important thing. 

I started this blog to record the everyday moments of my life and to fulfill my need to write. I write because without my words I wouldn’t know myself. Through writing I create a home for myself, in my thoughts and in my mind.  Words make the world a smaller place. There is always at least one other person out there that can connect with the words you are sharing. I hope that today that is you!

We all have a story and this is mine. Thanks for following along!

I always love to chat! If you’d like to connect, feel free to email me at katieamacdonald2@gmail.com
