Party planning is one of my favorite things of all time. From a small get together with friends to full-blown events (I helped organize a Care Bears Brunch in New York back in July), parties are a passion of mine. So for Kyle’s 30th birthday, I’d been planning for a few years. Continue reading
Hello again, everyone! As another weekend comes to an end, I’ve been thinking about beginnings. One year ago, Allie and I began our adventures in blogging. Close to the same time last year, I began a new relationship in my life. It was love…well, puppy love 🙂 Continue reading
Here we are one year later! It’s hard to believe a year has passed since Allie and I decided to dive in to this blog adventure. I know the past few months (well, most of this year) we’ve been off the grid, but we are back and determined to keep this thing going. To echo what Allie said – we really do appreciate the support we’ve received from all of you who followed along with us. So, lets catch up! Continue reading
This time last year, I had high hopes for this little blog of ours. Hopes rooted in great intentions – to write more, to keep up with Kate (and family) better, to have a creative outlet and see where it would take us. One year ago today we were “launching” KateAndAllie.com to see what might become of a little family/travel/lifestyle/fun times blog. Continue reading
So, it’s obviously been a LONG time since I updated. Once so much time has gone by, it’s hard to know where to start in order to catch up. So… I scrolled through my photos and figured I’d grab the ones showing what we’ve been up to… all the way back to Halloween! Continue reading
Is 2015 really over? This year has flown by and what an adventure it has been!
It’s been a busy couple of months since I last posted, but here’s a quick rundown of our holiday season.
Italy – check that one off the bucket list! I finally visited a country I’ve always wanted to experience and it was nothing short of amazing.
Kenne and I departed on 10 October for Rome. It was a bit damp when we arrived but we were determined to make the most of it. We scoped out a place for lunch in a torrential downpour while we waited to check into our Air B&B. There was a bustling outdoor farmers’ market happening in the square as we enjoyed our food and wine. The next morning we met at Piazza Navona for a walking tour of the city and ancient ruins. We checked out the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. Continue reading
…Something I never saw coming!
In April 2014, I married my husband. We were in for a tough ride, as my mother passed away from cancer at the age of 64 just three months later. She was a true caretaker – a stay-at-home mother for most of our young lives, a hospice nurse and a wellness coordinator. Prior to the wedding I had multiple bouts of severe dermatitis on my face, neck and chest. Like we all do, I always called Mom when things went wrong. She told me time and time again… “it’s all that crap you use, just try soap & water!” But I thought I knew better and off to Sephora I went for a miracle cream… to no avail. Continue reading
So a few big things are in the works here in Los Angeles and thought I’d take a moment to share before everything ramps up! Also, Halloween is right around the corner so it’s time to prepare the house and our costumes! Check out my updates below…
Wow, where did September go? I didn’t mean for the entire month to slip by without a blog post, oops!
Kenne and I did a lot of exploring locally the past month. Here are some highlights: Continue reading
