I’m Kat. I started blogging eight years ago as a way to chronicle my year in Australia. In moving abroad and backpacking I set out to find direction in my life, only to discover that not every journey will be Eat, Pray, Love. I didn’t become a permanent nomad as I had once hoped but I have used Seeking Misadventure to help decipher the travels I take and the adventures I create at home.
After six years living abroad and in Texas (a state that is its own country in many ways) I have made my way back home to North Carolina. Having grown up in the foothills, we’ve come back to set up roots on the sandy shores where I am trying to convince myself and others that I am a beach babe. My salty, boat captain husband Tyler, ocean wave-chasing dog Clara and wee babe Haines are all light years ahead of me.
What you’ll find here is my life as a new Mama, an avid foodie on a tight budget, a solo traveler who is learning to not be solo and as many handmade crafts and food as I can make time for.
