Walking with Cake: Thrifted-Sailboat-Skirt 2

Hi, I’m Catherine and I live in Pflugerville, Texas, just outside Austin.  I’m married to my high school sweetheart and I’m mom to two young boys who keep me busy 24 hours a day.  I earned a B.A. in English, an M.A. in Literature, and taught students of all ages, from babies in Mother’s Day Out to community college students, sometimes on the same day, though not at the same time (because that would be weird and very hard to accomplish). I also did a short stint as a Mary Kay beauty consultant, but that is another blog entirely.

I have multiple interests including books, art, interior design, music, movies, and fashion. I have scleroderma (a connective tissue disease), and you’ll see me mention it from time to time.  My love of fashion led to an interest in ethical and fair trade clothing, and I now work diligently to support and promote responsible clothing companies.

I’ve been blogging since 2008 and I love to write about topics near and dear to my heart, like my family and makeup. In 2012, I moved from Blogger to self-hosting at WordPress, and my blog’s name evolved a little, too.  I hope you’ll join me as I tackle life with my own unique perspective.

I am thrilled to share the contents of my blog, and I just ask that you link back to my site.  I also love to know that people are talking about me, so please tell me if you are!

Please feel free to contact me here.

    Hi Catherine,
    I just found your blog through Blogging Your Way. I love your blog! Your post “Falling for it” was a favorite of mine, I felt like I learned a lot about you from it. You’re a sweet talented writer, I am very much looking forward to reading your posts.
    X- Leslie

    Hi Catherine, so excited to find your blog! I love fashion and have been getting really depressed trying to figure out how to ethically shop (I already buy a lot secondhand) so nice to find someone blogging about this, thanks! 🙂

    Hi Catherine, I stumbled across your blog last summer sometime. One of those “one blog leads to another” moments. It took me awhile to figure out that you are THE Catherine from junior high! Just thought I would come clean so I wouldn’t have to feel like a creeper reading your blog. I really enjoy your blog and appreciate your discussion on ethical consumption.
