The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up.  Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.    -Serena Williams


Hey, y’all.  I’m Kathryn.

I’m a native Southerner living in Northwest Arkansas.  It’s gorgeous here!  The mountains, the people, the progress, the traditions.  I just love it and never want to live anywhere else.  I’m a recently divorce mama to my three-year-old daughter, Bailey, who keeps me laughing every day.  We’ve got a basset hound named Bruno who’s good for keeping the couch warm and letting the girl climb all over him, and a cat named Jester who really isn’t good for anything.

I work in digital marketing and social media management by helping companies monetize their websites.  Drive engagement, improve content, increase customer satisfaction. I’m also a freelance social media manager for a few local businesses, contributing write to a local magazine and mommy blog, and I do a little marketing photography because obviously I don’t have enough on my plate.  🙂

Between the girl, singing in the church choir, and work, I stay pretty busy.  In my downtime I love dropping by local businesses and discovering one-of-a-kind pieces you can’t find in larger retailers.

With a love of all things local, I’m here to share new finds and favorite haunts all across Northwest Arkansas.

Not from around these parts?   There’s something for you, too!

This blog is also about bracing each other up; whether it’s at work when you need a giggle to get back into your productive groove, when you’re in the car pick-up line and you’re looking for a fun distraction, or you’re sitting on the couch trying to ignore your husband’s lame show.  I’m here for ya, hon.

Well, that’s me! I’m so glad you’re here! I’m hoping you stick around and we brace each other up together.
