katy loves

First, tell us a little about yourself. 
I'm Katy Hill. I have many loves including my faith in Christ, my husband, our golden retriever Nola, music, running, good food, and my rain boots because they give me full permission to splash in any and every rain puddle. Oh and I also love splashing in rain puddles. :)

How long have you been blogging?
I started as a food/healthy living blogger in October of 2009, but realized I couldn't be stuck in one certain niche. I love to eat food, but not so much writing about it all the time. I switched over to my blog in January of this year and I couldn't be happier!
What inspired you to create your blog?
I read other blogs all the time and knew I wanted to do the same thing. I figured we all have a story to share and maybe someone will want to read mine. I also thought it was a great way to keep my family and friends in the loop on what was going on in my life. I was newly married and it was fun to document that time in our lives. I've learned so much about myself through blogging and have met so many amazing people. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made!

What things do you like sharing on your blog most?  Do you have a favorite post?
I love sharing my personal stories because people respond to them the most. Sometimes it's hard to share the bad stuff along with the good. I often find myself chiseling away at the personal posts and having to rewrite them a hundred times, but once I hit "publish" I feel so much better! I also truly enjoy blogging about the littlest things, like trips to the farmer's market, a long walk in the park or an afternoon spent picking apples. I think documenting the little things makes them even more special and many times, when we look back, they turn out to be the big things. I've learned to truly enjoy each and every little adventure life brings! As for my favorite post so far? It would have to be this one, but this one is a close second. :)
What do you like to do most when you’re not blogging?
Most of all, I love spending time with my husband and our pup Nola. I love exploring our new state(we just moved to North Carolina), going to the mountains, working on creative projects, photography, and music.
If you could live in any other decade, which would it be and why?
This may seem a bit random, but I'm in love with the Biltmore estate and would love to have been there in it's prime, so the 1890's? We've done some of the behind-the-scenes tours where they've read from relative's journals and it just seemed like an amazing place to stay at that time. I'd love to see how it was back then. 

Current favorite blog reads?
I read quite a few, but some of my favorites at the moment are The WiegandsGussy SewsKyla Roma, and The Twenty-Fifth Year.
