Who is Kathie? Mostly I’m a simple girl, a homebody. I enjoy doing things myself and creating a life from the works of my own hands. I’m blessed to be the soulmate of a man named, Jeff . Jeff and home are the most important aspects of my everyday life and the single guiding factor behind everything I do. I work hard and enjoy life – I make no apologies for either. I enjoy a simple life that focuses on people and creativity rather than stuff and activity.
I’m also a writer and a teacher. I write and teach about the things I’m most passionate about – home, gardening, canning, simple living, frugality, and creativity. My articles have been published in national and regional magazines as well as online publications. I teach locally through the Flathead Valley Community College and at other venues as well.
Why Two Frog Home? I’ve always had a fondness for frogs. Jeff adopted my love of frogs as we joined our lives, eventually he started calling himself “the old frog” and me “the young frog,” - until it morphed into Two Frog Home.
What Can the Reader Expect to Find Here? Just Kathie, being Kathie. You’ll find topics near and dear to my heart: organic gardening, home canning, cooking and baking from scratch, photos, Montana, voluntary simplicity, frugal living, homemaking, and much more. I promise this blog is an honest representation of how Jeff and I chose to live; good, bad, beautiful, and ugly. I’m naturally an optimistic and upbeat person and that’s the tone this blog tends to take. It’s not that I don’t have bad days, because of course I do, its just that I chose not to dwell there – I like to live in the light and try to reflect that light outwards as much as possible.
