Welcome to A Happimess Life! I am so excited to share all of my favorite things with you! My blog journey has been a long time coming. It has been a dream of mine to start a blog for years. I have a background in fashion, fitness, and creative writing, so the opportunity to combine these things is total MAGIC! My dream was put on hold for a while between babies and life, but just this past summer I decided I wanted to give it a try again. In an effort to learn more about blogging and get some insider tips, I reached out to my favorite blogger for some direction. I emailed Liz Joy, girl boss at Pure Joy Home (follow her, she is awesome!), asking her to post more content on blogging how to’s and tips. I thought it was a long shot that she would even have the time to respond to me…she did…and she asked me to work for her! OMG! Somehow the planets aligned and I have been working and learning from Liz for over 3 months now. It has been the most amazing experience. She is true life + style blogger goals. I aspire to be as successful as her some day. Her hustle and drive is truly inspiring and motivating. (Thanks Liz!!)
So here goes….my journey into blogging! I guess the best place to start here is by introducing myself and giving you all a bit of my background. Hi! I’m Kate Britt Boesch. I am a wife and mother to both toddlers and teenagers. Yes! That’s right…ages 2-17 years old! I have 3 children and 2 stepchildren. We live in a tiny beach town at the Jersey Shore. We are so lucky to live so close to the beach! I love taking the kids for bike rides up to the beach to search for shells and ice cream at the boardwalk in the summer.
And when I’m not momming around town with kids in tow, I love just about any type of exercise including interval training, running, yoga, pilates, and obstacle races…like Tough Mudder and Spartan. Exercise is mom medicine! I love fitness so much that I became a certified personal trainer a few years ago (before kids). I can’t wait to share my favorite workouts and how I fit in exercise throughout my busy mommy filled day.
Along with fitness, I have a passion for fashion and interior design. I guess its my artsy side. While I appreciate all types of fashion and interior design, I find myself more drawn to classic, comfortable, casual, and neutral with pops of color! Again, pre “momlife”, my first career out of college was in fashion and PR. I was so lucky and fortunate to work for Lucky Brand Jeans as their showroom manager and Free People as their Communications Coordinator. Styling outfits for everyday life, office attire, or a date night makes my creative heart happy!!
When it comes to home styling and projects, I simply can’t resist redoing a room on a budget! Just recently, we moved our family into a 1920’s beach cottage. It’s super cute but needs some work. Three bedrooms for a family of 7! Talk about a tiny house! But we love it! It’s a total mess at times, but a HAPPIMESS! I will be sharing how we decorate, renovate, organize, and entertain in our sweet little home by the beach!
I just can’t wait to share everything I love from fashion, interiors, entertaining, kids, motherhood, recipes, and fitness…and everything in between! I hope you continue on this journey with me!
