This is me. A wife. A mama. A woman.

1Hi! I’m Kat, a 32 year old wife and mum and this is my blog!

I’m not even sure if I know how to blog yet, but I do know that I have a lot to say. I also personally think I’m interesting. If not interesting, then at least refreshingly honest! I love who I am and I’m not afraid to say it. I’m an amazing mum, a hard working wife and a reliable daughter. I’m finally at a place in my life where I feel calm and I feel grounded. I have accepted what I cannot change and I’ve gained clarity because of it. I feel in control of my life.

I married the man of my dreams and my best friend 7 years ago after meeting him 15 years ago. We do almost everything together, because we want to! He treats me right and supports me in everything I do. It does help that he’s hot!!! We have an almost five year old son Benny who is the most kind hearted, smart, well behaved, funny little man I have ever met. I am such a proud mum to the point where it borderlines obsession! I’m also currently 27 weeks pregnant with our second son and although I hate being pregnant, I have to say it’s a lot easier this time around. Maybe because I’m looking good? Ha! (Yes, I’m modest. You’ll see that as time goes on.)

I don’t want my blog to be everything to everybody. That’s not me. I am a pregnant motherless mum who’s managing her anxiety. I want to help others realise that it’s OK to be sad and to feel. It’s OK to be real. It’s OK to be raw. That’s how you become a better person. With each blog, I hope to share something different- from why I hate being pregnant, to how I manage my anxiety. If at least one of you can relate, then I’ve realised my dream. Heck, if someone dares to find me inspiring, it’ll be a pretty awesome bonus! I didn’t really have anyone relatable that I could turn to during these life changing experiences, so I’m hoping I can be that person for someone else.

So welcome! Welcome to #MyRawSelf! Please don’t be scared to engage. Leave a comment, ask me questions. Like I said, I love to talk so I will talk back! I’m really looking forward to sharing a lot of who I am with you all!

Look at me, I’m blogging!
