Thank you for visiting Live Half Full. This is my personal “life blog” where I share my story.

Katie Lynn #1_

My name is Katie. I’m a 30-year-old Working Mom and Wife who lives in the Chicagoland area. I write to share my story and to hopefully inspire others to make the most of every day.

I started this blog in 2011 as a way to hold myself to accountable to marathon training as I fund-raised in tribute to my Mom. Since then it’s brought me through many seasons of life- through planning my wedding, my first pregnancy, navigating my first year of motherhood and most recently losing my Dad unexpectedly.

These days I write about my personal journey to balance my mom guilt, marriage, Marketing career and personal goals. I am always dreaming about travel and love to explore new places, even if that means making a new recipe in my own kitchen. I’m obsessed with personal development. I gave up dieting last year and am currently working towards the bigger picture of self care. I live for planning and am always up to something. I make it my personal goal to live in yoga pants on the weekends and have a dorky, lifelong obsession with the French impressionist artist Claude Monet.
