In honor of receiving this fabulous award I am supposed to tell you 7 random things about me.
Alright, here goes nothin’. The LONG and SHORT of Kate
#1 – The first time I ever stepped foot on a plane was when I went skydiving at the age of 18. Since then, I have done plenty of traveling and been aboard many airplanes.
#3 – I don’t own a TV. We are not poor, we just choose to live TVless. Living without one gives us more time to connect, talk and read. I love reading and TV distracts me from all the good books out there. Once you go TV-free for a little while you start to realize how much television can mess with your psyche in terms of the images and advertising you see. (Confession: I am human. There are 3 shows that I watch on Hulu from time to time: Brothers & Sisters, Modern Family and currently The Biggest Loser).
#4 – This is subject to change, but currently my favorite place in the world is South Africa. The country is stunning and specifically the people from Khula Village are some of the warmest, most gracious individuals I have ever crossed paths with. They remind me to appreciate the little things in life and to stop worrying about the trivial junk that we so often do in the U.S. (such as clothing, money, our hair, weight or a job promotion).
