    Gratituesday: Kate Lichter

    Music| Photography| Kate Lichter It’s important that you understand, at least, this one thing about us: we are lovers of Art, in all of its many forms. As young girls our imagination was endless and if you asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up, it always had something to do with art.

    Who Am I: Expert At Overthinking

       I’ve sat here far longer than I care to admit, typing and deleting sentences because I am an expert at overthinking. That’s a sentence you’ll probably read more than once on this website. I suppose I’ll start with why my sister and I even wanted to build and curate a lifestyle blog in the first place. Like most human beings we want to be seen and heard. We want our opinions to be respected and our voices validated…I don’t think that’s vain or needy at all. I’ll validate myself. I’m doing it now.    So here’s the thing, introductions are the bane of my existence but they are so…
