For months I have poured my enthusiasm, efforts, and creativity into other outlets besides What Kate Ate and as I prepare to fly home to relish in time with family and friends, enjoy fresh New England seafood, and splash in the ocean it seems fitting to call an end to this chapter of my life.
WKA has provided me with happiness, opportunities, and inspiration. But it inevitably has also created tension, guilt, and frustration. Over time the blog dropped in priority as I began living more fully in other areas of my life and allocating less time to catapulting this blog into the success that I once dreamt it could be.
As I step out from beneath this platform I am entering other areas of growth in my life. I am recommitting to my personal yoga practice and am slowly turning yoga into a career. I am developing my new website KateConnellYoga.com which will have a blog feature complete with yoga musings, yogi recipes, and photography. I’m slowing down a bit and enjoying time in my kitchen and putting my domestic side to use as I can my way to queendom. And I’m quenching my insatiable desire to travel with Matt by my side.
And I’m celebrating life.
What Kate Ate turned into more a reflection of how I strive to live my life than a reflection of what food passed my lips everyday, and the transformation that this blog has allowed me to undergo is sacred to me. I wish all of you musings of travel, yoga, and food and I promise that I’ll never change.
