Minnesota Blogger: Katie from Strawberry Halls Forever

Hey everyone, I'm Katie and I blog over at Strawberry Halls Forever!  MN Bloggers has given me this great opportunity to introduce myself...so here we go!

First, how about a little info about my blog?  I decided that I wanted to start documenting more of my life because the last few years have been full of exciting changes, and no doubt things will continue to change, so I thought I'd probably want to look back on these years at some point.  The reason I named my blog Strawberry Halls Forever is because my maiden name is Strawbridge (and therefore people used to call me Strawberry a lot) and my last name now is Hall, so I wanted the name to reflect both my personal individuality as well as my life with my husband, Mark.

Here is a little bit more about me:

I've been married to my husband since May 2011, how does the time fly so fast??  We bought a house last year and have been settling into nicely it with our cat and dog.

Speaking of the pets, here they are!  I adopted Orlando, our cat, in 2007 and we welcomed Shay, our Golden Retriever, about a year ago!  Shay is still a puppy and Orlando puts up with him very well!  I am a HUGE animal lover- I could never imagine living without pets!

I love to travel!!  I've been blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively in Latin America, but also in Thailand and Europe.  I love any type of travel, whether it be a road trip to another state or a 13 hour flight across the world.  Mark and I are going to Europe next month and I am SO excited!

I'm sort of a fitness junkie.  I enjoy most types of exercise and try really hard to live a healthy, but balanced, lifestyle.  I'm mostly a runner, but have also dabbled in the triathlon world.  I'm also in the process of becoming certified as a yoga teacher!  I am loving this process and am SO excited to be able to teach my own classes in the near future!

I like to think I'm a down-to-earth lady!  I am pretty easy going and just love to have fun!  I hope you hop on over to my blog to visit me!  You can find me on Instagram and Pinterest also!  

Well, thanks for letting me introduce myself to you all!! I can't wait to get to know some of you MN Bloggers out there!

xoxo, Katie
