i’m katie. welcome to Oh Shine On.
daughter / sister / blogger / photographer / beatles-lover / social justice-seeker / amateur-yogi / professional hugger / lord of the rings quoter / trouble-maker / wannabe-philosopher
launched in the spring of 2011, the Oh Shine On blog began as a food blog with an emphasis on balanced, healthy recipes and momentary lapses of judgement. so this is my blog. well, this blog isn’t exactly me… it’s a funnier, sassier, more entertaining version of myself. that’s only here, though. never meet me in real life.
over the years, this blog has become an outlet, a sacred place to expose the random musings that cross from one side of my head to the other. without fear, without judgment, but with a few beatles references and a lot of spilled coffee.
as i’ve grown and learned more about myself, i’ve become an observant of the world around me. my passions have led me to strive for a world where equality, sustainability, hard-work, innovation, community and love flourish. my approach to life is similar to my approach to food. i believe that creativity, individuality, and a pinch of sass offer a whole lot more than just following a simple recipe.
i’m only twenty-two, but i appreciate all forms of expression, compassion, and acceptance. i want to be a friend and a part of your life. i want to hang out with you, pour a cup o’ jo for you, cook a meal for you, photograph you, converse about john steinbeck and e.b. white with you, and learn from you.
