Hello! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I’m Katie, a twenty-something girl with dreams of being a blogger, a crafter, a librarian, and generally living an exciting and colorful life.
Stargirl is from a children’s book I read in middle school. From then on, I wanted to be Stargirl: carefree, unique, happy, twirly, unafraid. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that I can’t be Stargirl exactly, but she still gives me encouragement to be different and to relish my own unique life.
Around here, you’ll find snapshots of my life. I live with my dear husband in rural Virginia. He farms on the family farm and of a local church. Meanwhile, I’m learning to live far away from stoplights, Target, and the nearest library. I keep myself busy with lots of knitting and crocheting, reading, gardening, crafting, and general adventures of two crazy kids trying to make a home and community for themselves. I love to write about my crafts, books I’ve read, things to recommend to you, and of course, a weekly happy list.
I believe strongly in the power of children’s literature, happy lists, well-harmonized music, art, literature, love, and a good meal. I am learning to be passionate about fair trade, homegrown food, farmer’s markets, homemade things, Sabbath, and community. You will also find I get quite excited about the little things in life: good cheese, delicious tea, Sunday Night Baseball, handwritten letters, mason jars, and a good book.
Welcome to the world of Stargirl Wonders.
