Finally jumping in on #fridayintroductions started by @jessaconnolly and @thetinytwig to make instasocial a little more personal. So, here goes! || I'm Kate! Pictured here in an ideal state of Kate: sharing gelato in Paris with the love of my life. Have mercy, I am blessed! I am a Syracuse NY native and lover of Central New York (you should come visit!) My first career was in musical theater; I still adore the stage and teaching dance classes in my awesome local theater community. My second career has granted me the honor of owning a celebration design company, from which I've created a local wedding blog (The Lovewell Post) and now launching a series of planning workshops (#EngagedWell) for engaged couples! I am wholly loved & daily saved by Jesus, I love my church and get to serve alongside my talented hubs in leading worship. (One of my greatest joys.) We have a cute little house and a cute little (but quickly growing) yellow lab puppy named CharlieParker! I can't have enough mac n' cheese in my life, or ice cream for that matter. I'm generally a complicated person (in search of simplifying), with lots of thoughts and too many words... so there's so much more I could share-- but I think that's enough for today! || Today's question is what's your life motto? It's a tie between Gandhi's "Be the change you wish to see in the world." And 1 Corinthians 16:14 "Do everything in love." || My hope is not only that I do things in love, but that I love well (hence the name)-- "well" is an incredible word that challenges, asks a standard of intentionality and of commitment, it encourages excellence, but more so, completion. To love completely, excellently, extravagantly, wholly, that's a life well lived. So... tell me about you!!
