So glad you stopped by today.  I’m Katherine a young woman trying to figure out how to go from my mediocre, lukewarm state to being on fire.  I am an over thinking, moderately crunchy, and thouroughly Geeky, wife and mama to two little bambinos.

Our silly Sammy, goofing off for the camera.


I started this site because I wanted a forum in which to think about and discuss what it means to live – really live.  In my life to-date, far too much time has been spent surviving; I am so done with mere survival.  Its time to thrive.

Why Half Kindled?

The inspiration for the blog tittle goes way back to the 14th century when my BFF (and patron saint), Catherine of Siena said, ” Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”  This of course begs the question: who am I meant to be?  While I have aspects of it figured out, I have a long way to go before I have a fully satisfactory answer.  This blog is my attempt to find the  pieces of a life well lived and put them together.

Won’t you join me?  

I would love to hear from you!  Like a good bottle of wine, ideas are best when shared.  Perhaps together we can discover what it looks like to live life to the fullest.

    Although I doubt anyone who actually knows you would describe you as mediocre or lukewarm (more likely terms applied would be generous, honest, and kind), I’m really glad you started this blog! I’ve really enjoyed reading all your posts thus far. Keep ’em coming :) Also, love that picture of your family.
