Hi, I'm Kate. This blog used to be called Suburban Sweetheart, but now it's not. Here's why, & here's how I chose the new name, in case you're insatiably interested. I've been writing here since 2007, so if you have a lot of time on your hands, I've got, like, 1,000 posts for ya.

If you're not sure where to begin, try any of these:
  1. 50 Things I've Done
  2. Testing the Strong Ones
  3. You Can Do It, Put Your Back (Brace) Into It 
  4.  You Can Always Go Home Again: My LeBron Moment

  6. Home Sweet Coffeeshops: On the Weird & Wonderful World of Becoming a Regular
  7. Under the Weight of Living 
  8.  Sorry I'm Not Sorry: A List of Things I've Apologized for This Week 
  9. Where I'm From: A Tribute to the Buckeye State
  10. Near-Life Experience
I'm a thirtysomething Ohioan, born & raised, & I currently live in Cleveland, OH, which really does rock. My husband Mike & I live in the Tremont neighborhood with our cats, Helo & Dora (named for characters from Battlestar & Harry Potter, respectively), in an apartment that feels more like home than anywhere I've lived since childhood.

I wasn't always a Clevelander. In fact, I lived in in nine places in 10 years, which was once my defining personality characteristic. I spent 2007 through 2010 & all of 2014 living in my second favorite city, Washington, D.C. During the years between, I lived in Red Bank, N.J., where most people didn't actually sound like Snooki, & Portsmouth, N.H., where most people did actually sound like actors from The Departed.

I have a degree in magazine journalism & a background in public policy, communications, & social media. Currently working as a community manager for a large non-profit, I'm also a sometimes-freelancer & aspiring future author. I occasionally write for Cleveland Magazine, HeyAlma.com, & Localeur, & my past essays have appeared on sites like the Washington Post's Soloish, xoJane.com, and Esquire.com. One of my essays was published in an anthology of Jewish millennials.
