Hi friends, I'm Katherine! I'm a mom of 3 year old twins - the sassiest little girl and the funniest little boy. They keep my husband Jay and I (12 years and counting) on our toes for sure but sometimes it's our fur baby, beagle and super dog Peter, that is the one causing all the trouble. But only sometimes. I'm also a photographer and I have loved being a small business owner for the last 10 years. Saying that makes me feel old! We have a crazy, busy life with a lot of love and we love calling Knoxville home.
