About “An Illustrated Parsonage Life”
When I started this blog, it was entitled “The Seminarian’s Wife” because my husband was a seminarian. I used this blog as an outlet as we dealt with life as a sem. couple. I first worked at a daycare and then as a nanny during these years. We moved every summer and had many adventures and trials as we figured out our lives as newly weds.
I write under the pseudonym “Katrina” as a loose form of privacy.
This is my husband, whom I refer to as “my husband” or “T” because I never made him a real pseudonym. We were married in August 2010. He is a pastor in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
We have 2 daughters, I refer to our oldest as “Babykins” (or “Baby Girl” in the first few posts after her birth). She was born in September 2014 and has graciously been our test subject for this whole parenting thing (Don’t tell her this, but we really don’t know what we’re doing).
Sweet Pea was born in November 2016. She likes to prove that younger siblings do NOT do everything the same as their older siblings.
These are our cats. We adopted them as kittens in November of 2013.
We all live in Northern Iowa, where my husband is a sole pastor at a church in a small town. Since my husband an I both grew up in Iowa, we enjoy living here.
I enjoy reading, writing, occasionally baking, eating chocolate, and drinking coffee. On this blog, I write about various topics: Life as a pastor’s wife, introversion, marriage, motherhood, and absurd stories from my life.
Oh, and I sometimes illustrate these stories with *awesome* stick-figure drawings. Be amazed.
