Meet Katelyn

Hey! I'm Katelyn and it's nice to "meet" you. I currently reside in Montevallo, Alabama--a tiny town about 25 miles south of Birmingham, Alabama. I adore all things summer, flea markets, riding horses, cajun peanuts, the outdoors and homemade ice cream. I started writing here at Southern Samplings a few years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. 

I've loved writing since I was in elementary school. When the teacher would assign a one page journal entry, I would always have trouble limiting myself to one, sometimes even two pages. Stories and words and people have my heart. I love getting to know complete strangers. Some of my best life lessons have come from a stranger on a subway in New York as much as they have come from my father. 

Jesus Christ holds my heart. I decided at a young age that He was going to have the key to my heart. My parents are incredibly godly examples and their lives scream Jesus in everything they do. I adore my family and with 4 sisters and 1 brother, there are always conversations in most rooms of my home at all times.

Country music and Nashville, TN increase my heart rate each time I come in contact with either of them. Besides the Lord, nothing brings me more joy than finding a new artist trying to find their niche in the world and sharing them with the world here on Southern Samplings. 

I'm a rambling southern girl full of grace and forgiveness. I'm thankful that you've taken some time to stop by and read along.
