About Me

Welcome! Thank you for visiting!

Hi, I’m Kate!  I am married to Harry and we have two sons HP & Liam. This blog is the unraveling adventure of us building up the kingdom as we make our way through life.

I was born and raised in Orange County, California but we moved in Sept. 2014 to Central Illinois.  In 2015,  we were given the opportunity to invest and build a small development with a few family members.  Our first duplex will be one that we will live in half and rent the other half.  We have plans for two more phases.

A side from the demands of being a custom home builder… I stay at home with both of our children. Our Catholic faith is what keeps us grounded. I am interested in holistic living, intentional parenting, crafts, design, DIY, gluten-free cooking and much more.

More then anything, I want to build people up to a more affirming life. Thus, building affirmations. A positive attitude can effect change.


“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

    Happy to find your blog! It is fun to be part of your lives visually and with voting rights in the design. Thank you for the opportunity for us to share our opinions. Qualifying statement follows – you can ignore my opinion if you see in person what I thought was wonderful in the pictures is not what it is pictured to be. 🙂
