Hi! I’m Katelin, and welcome to Cotten and Byrd. Since graduating from graduate school back in April 2016, I have created new goals and learned a lot about life post graduation. During post-grad life, I have created new goals and started on new projects. One of these new projects is blogging. I am here to share my wardrobe, fitness and health, home, travel, and reading selections. I have a lot of interest, and I’m not good at sitting still.
My husband and I are originally form Mississippi, but are currently living in lower Alabama where he is finishing graduate school. We met at fourteen. B and I dated for seven years before getting married. He still keeps me laughing.
Why Cotten and Byrd?
Cotten and Byrd are both family names that mean a great deal to me. These names remind me of where I came from, and how I arrived where I am. I lost both of my parents while in college to different health complications, and the name of this blog is a way to remember them. My parents and I had a good relationship, but I know that everyone isn’t able to say that. For those that can, never forget to thank your parents for all they do.
After I determined I wanted to start blogging, I began to brainstorm on what to write and what to call this new endeavor. I wanted a name that would share a part of myself with the readers with a twist. That twist, I didn’t want put myself into a specific niche. Not yet at least. I’ve been planning content and writing for about four months, and since then I’ve change my mind several times. I almost didn’t start this blog at all, but here I am with a blog. I am excited to be starting something new, and I hope you enjoy coming along for the journey.
