Hi! I'm Kate...

Naptime Kitchen started as a hobby back when my oldest was a baby... 

...and grew to be so much more! Helping you create a home that serves you, routines and recipes that you enjoy, and perspective for the here and now is my passion.

While not everyone here shares the same beliefs (something I love and welcome in this space), I gotta say love it when two holidays that feel in juxtaposition land on the same day. Valentine’s with its festive pink and indulgence and candy. And Ash Wednesday, with its subdued grey and fasting and repentance. During Lent, […]
