My nieces have birthdays about a month apart, which makes this time of year generally busy trying to figure out what ‘kids are into these days’ – can’t BELIEVE that I’m even saying that! – and what ‘Awesome Aunt Katy’ should buy them! My oldest niece, Kira, just turned 9, it seems like yesterday when she was 3 weeks old and throwing up down my shirt (that’s a story for another time) and it made think about being young and feeling like things took forever to come, like summer break, Christmas break, Spring break, basically anytime that I didn’t have to go to school or BIRTHDAYS. I remember feeling when I was...

Being an amputee that is in the public eye has brought me some incredible opportunities in my life. There are speaking events, TV appearances, acting jobs, track meets, these are all awesome but I have to say the ones that really, at the end of the day, mean the most are the opportunities to help kids with disabilities. I had such an opportunity yesterday. I met Melody a few years ago at a running clinic that was put on by the Challenged Athletes Foundation, she was an adorable bilateral above knee amputee (just like me) with miles of blond hair down her back! She was just the cutest thing ever. I knew that I wanted to meet her and her family and maybe stay in touch or...

Container Garden

I have recently started growing some plants on our balcony and I had no idea how much fun it was going to be! My brother is very into gardening and learning about plants and taking care of them and he was out in California for a visit and I seized the opportunity! I put him to work and we spent the better half of two days choosing the best options for my window boxes and balcony. We had to consider how big things can get and the best bang for our buck. We ended up with a range of herbs (basil, cilantro, rosemary, among others) and berries (straw and blue) and then some tomatoes and peppers. Not only was I thrilled to FINALLY get my container garden started BUT I was...
