Hi y’all. My name is Katie Bower and I am pretty much peeing my pants with excitement about meeting you, My Way Home readers.
My Way Home is not only a great source of inspiration – but to me, it’s a great way of connecting with people, changing your space for the better, treasure-hunting, and general good, clean FUN. That is something you should know about me…I dig having fun! I’m a big believer that life is here for us to enjoy and our homes are places for real life! Speaking of life—let me introduce my whole world….
I am a very, very lucky and quirky girl who met the man of my dreams on a blind date…and he will always be my boyfriend. After a few years of marriage, we brought a little blue bundle of joy home named Will and I don’t care what any scientist says – the world does revolve around him . Our first home was literally a dream come true. We had worked tirelessly to make it comfortable and a true reflection of us and we absolutely loved it.
Then about a year ago, the opportunity to invest in a larger piece of land (and a bigger house) presented itself. We jumped at the opportunity. With a tearful goodbye to our first home (being able to lease it to a beautiful, loving family softened the blow!), we bought the neglected foreclosure and have been working to make it more than just a house. It is still in the beginning stages and needs a whole lot of updating (think sponge painted walls and gold fixtures)…but that doesn’t hold us back. Together with inspiration from Wayfair and a very distinct sense of style (and humor), we’ve been slowly tweaking this house into a home.
You should also know that I am a stay-at-home mom and started a photography business last year, so I practically live with a camera in hand, documenting everything from birthday cakes to my toddler’s play spaces to photography props. I’ve learned through the lens a lot about myself, my perception of beauty, and how cherished little things are in life. My family is young and still learning about this thing called life and we are so excited to share a little more here with you. So I hope that you join us as we make this journey celebrating laughter, love, and beauty.
