We live in a strange time right now. Instead of connecting over coffee people connect through computers, toddlers try to zoom into the tv by touching the screen, people fall off cliffs taking selfies, and my now 7-year-old step daughter didn’t even know who Britney Spears was when we first met (I know - the horror right?).
At times it can feel like instead of celebrating our differences and supporting those most vulnerable in society we are criminalizing them here in “the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” Children are being neglected. There are so many animals in need of loving homes. Despite us all being “connected” on social media many of us feel lonely and insecure when we compare our lives to the perfect looking snap shots of our peers. Life can feel overwhelming.
I am here to tell you that aren’t like everyone else and THAT IS YOUR SECRET POWER ⚡️. But guess what? You don’t need to keep it a secret - please don’t! SHARE IT. Whether your ADD led you to discover you can balance a beer can on your strange, teepee-shaped, head (my go-to party trick), your taught your dog to fold the laundry (if you are available to train my dog to do this please contact me via email), or you sing in the shower like Mariah, SHARE WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE. Just because you aren’t like everyone else does not mean that you are alone. I want you to know I SEE YOU! When you see an illustration that looks just like your fluffy child, reminds you of your best friend or inspires you to push yourself, that is me CHEERING YOU ON.
Through my legal career, advocating for children in child welfare, and my art (donating a percent of proceeds the SFSPCA to help animals in need), I’m just trying to live my life’s mission of sprinkling a little hope and happiness into peoples’ hearts and homes. I’m able to do this work with the love and support of my partner in crime, my rescue maltese/shih tzu and the Ladie Katie Director of Fluffiness, Molly (@mollythemaltishit) and Australian import husband, Adam.
You might not have it all figured out - and neither do I! But I see you - fighting every day to try to convince others of the validity of your dreams. Save your strength - you don’t need to convince me. It might sound crazy to everyone else. It might be a messy road - or a road slower than a turtle trucking through peanut butter - but I SUPPORT YOU AND BELIEVE IN YOU 💕💪🏻.
P.S. Let's be friends!
