My name is Katie and I can not believe I am attempting to blog. With that said, I will get out things about myself as I would put in a journal rather than trying to describe myself to others who may come across this one day and see where it takes me 🙂 .
I am 24 and I have such a great family that is so strong and when we are together during a crisis no one can knock us down. Unfortunately fortunately we were able to realize this a few times together already. I have a strong Italian Mother who is the glue that holds our family together, an amazingly strong Irish Father who has conquered things I couldn’t even dream of doing, an older Sister who is taking after my mother to the “T” and I love her and her beautiful new family, a little Sister who is just so unique and intriguing that she could take over the world in a blink and no one would know it was coming.

As you see, family in number one is my heart. I have a new family that I have taken into my heart as well. Annnnddd the boyfriend, I never loved anyone as much as I love him. I have grown to build a relationship with his entire immediate family and consider them all such. Oh and the best part, our families together are even more natural! It just fits together without force or being uncomfortable. Everyone on both sides have said this too, so it’s not just me. His mother who I am so close with, refers to me as her daughter in law and I don’t think twice about it.
I love sports, maybe not as much as I used to a few years back but it’s still in me. I played Soccer, field hockey and softball. Softball was where my world would switch sides. No personal worries, no drama, no school on my mind just the ball and me. The rush comes back to me just thinking about it. I would put everything aside and completely focus in on that ball. If it meant diving (playing shortstop) and getting mean cuts on my hips and elbows it was well worth that play. So many memories I have and the best ones from softball involve my best friend since 1st grade! We were a dynamic duo with softball, pretty sure most boys were scared to toss the ball around with us. Ok, yes I know most boys were scared to.
Friends are considered family to me. I have a tight-knit of 9 friends that we call “the girls”. You can actually check out my tribute to them here:
Totally missing 5 more but I’m sure they will appear on here sooner or later. We all go back to elementary school except 2! Which was middle school! Pretty impressive right? Love my girls, each one of us will make time stop for another when needed! I’m so blessed really.
Now with the most important things aside, I am a text-book Libra. I am not really into Astrology, I mean it’s interesting but I don’t read my horoscope daily or anything. Although, everything I have ever read on the Libra is pretty much dead on lol. I am all about balance, hence the user name. If I feel like something isn’t right in my life and I am uncomfortable I tweak things until I feel balanced again. Makes no sense I know, but that’s pretty much why I started a blog. To get my thoughts down and help me adjust and better things to benefit me and my family.
- Libra is among the most sociable of the signs. As scales of old were really “balances,” so to do you seek balance in all that Libra does. You respond to situations with grace as Libra attempts to put others at ease. Artistically, Libra tries to balance from, content, colors and elements, and for this reason can be drawn toward creative endeavors.
I consider myself a very open-minded person who is always asking questions and wanting to know why. I feel like I always see gray, both sides of everything which in hand I truly believe is a gift. I have a passion for people and helping even if it takes away from my time. Sometimes I think I absorb myself in trying to help people too much that I forget about me sometimes.
My other passions are music – Blues, Country, Rock and Roll, Southern Rock, and dancing jiggy music. I have always connected my emotions through music since I can remember. I love art, photography and occasional portrait sketching. Most of all, I love a good time, just show me the way. I don’t like odd numbers, I am extremely superstitious and love to people watch. I worry too much for my own good and that is something I need to work on. I am ALWAYS up for a good ghost story and Oh, and I have a strange obsession for Janis Joplin…That’s me in a nut shell. 🙂
