Soon returning to our regularly scheduled blogging.....'s been nearly 2 months since I last posted. Summer is really flying by. 

So since my last post, we've returned home from Iceland and settled back into the lovely sweltering heat that is a Cincinnati summer and I know on my end (maybe not Patrick's) have begun the countdown to cooler days of Autumn. 

But before Autumn arrives, I'd love to share some of our travels, adventures around the city, and the amazing books, films, and other media I've been consuming. 

So stay tuned and I'll be back before you know it. 



It's funny. I have blogged on and off for the last decade or so, but have locked up all proof with the exception of a much neglected tumblr. Some of my greatest problems with blogging, besides coming of age when the entire personal style blog wave of sponsors and affiliations was really getting underway---were that I struggled to maintain a routine schedule or any semblance of fitting into a genre of sort. I enjoyed crafting personal style outfit posts but lacked all skill when it came to DIY tutorials. My photography skills were minimal at best and my interests weird, like really weird, and varied. To be honest,  I mostly enjoyed escaping the difficulties that were my life as an undergrad and a while later, a graduate student.  

Fast forward a few years and some major life changes and I'm back at it again. I want to use my little corner of the internet to document snippets of my life: review what I'm reading, what I'm listening to, films I love/hate, Queen City historical discoveries, plans for our upcoming return to Iceland,  to discuss life as the mama to two wild corgi pups, and if I'm really feeling up to it an outfit post or two. 

So welcome, I'm Katrina. I'm a recovering academic, feminist,  progressive, booze connoisseur and craft beer aficionado,  lover of all things Iceland, Queen City history nerd, and mother of corgwn (and three lovely kitties). Won't you stay a while?
