What I Love About Katherine:
She adapts to any situation. Although Katherine is most comfortable within her own selection of hobbies, interests, and natural abilities, she is willing to step outside her innate bubble to try new experiences and witness interests other than her own. For instance, just two months into our relationship she was fully immersed within a birthday party BBQ in Boerne, Texas surrounded with friends, family, and fully automatic firearms. Katherine handled herself like a champ, and walked away with a dozens new friends who all told me individually that she was amazing and that I could not let her get away. This summer, Katherine has taken on a huge full-time (side-job) task of our puppy Tara who exercises and trains the equivalent of football practice three-a-days with play time in between. I love that Katherine is so very flexible in her plans and ease to cope and excel in any situation.
She has a travel bug. Every girl I have met says they want to travel the world, but after a brief examination of their idea destinations, mostly the old world and beaches are aroused. Katherine on the other hand is open to nearly every destination I have mentioned. All it takes are a few beautiful google images of a destination and Katherine is on board. My travel list of destinations is far more remote, my sense of adventure is more extreme, and my idea of traveling is at times too fast paced for Katherine. Nonetheless, Katherine helps us reach a happy medium while being budget minded in our future escapades around the world.
She is a planner. Long before we met, Katherine had devised a systematic approach to life stages. These life stages include everything from personal and family oriented goals that include career paths, publishing, locations to call home in the future, and a lifelong dream to swim with baby sea otters; all plans that I would love to help Katherine accomplish. She loves to generate planned lists of months long for blog posts, cooked meals, and travel destinations. I actually love this planning, because I literally just need to provide some input or answer a few simple questions and all our planned events are accounted for in Katherine’s planner.
