So, I wanted to start a blog. I don't really have a good reason why I wanted to do this. I just wanted to try something new. So I guess I will just start with who I am.
I'm Katie, 26 and from South Jersey. I have been living in Seattle for the last 7 years. I moved here in 2003, a few months after I graduated from high school. I came here to work with a non-profit called YWAM. I really liked my time I spent working with them and I felt a sense of home here. So after the work I did with ywam was over. I decided to stay here. The first thing I did was find some room mates and get a job.
So I got a job working for Walgreen's drug store. That job turned out to be the biggest pain in the butt and the biggest blessing to me. I worked there for almost 6 years. (That is a long time for someone who is 20 at the time and unsure what to do with their life). I worked my way up from service clerk to assistant manager before I left there. And I also met the love of my life there. Her name is Courtney. Just kidding... I met Curtis there! Courtney too, but I fell in love with Curtis.
What can I say about Curtis. It was not love or even like at first sight. I thought he was an ass. He thought the same about me as well. We met when he came to help out for a few days at my store. We were setting Easter candy. We were there working side by side and I just did not like him. A few weeks later after I had been transferred to a new store, he came and helped out again. This time a friend of mine invited him to come out with us after work. He did and about a month after that we were a couple.
So last summer I moved in with Curtis. This summer I quit my job at Walgreen's and so did Curtis. I guess this blog will be about my life and whatever I feel like sharing.
