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.

I turn 35 today, and this is the biggest thing I’ve been muddling over: For most of my late twenties and early thirties I was bringing our four children into the world. While they (and Nate) are still my number one priority and use of time, the role is changing. I am not pregnant or […]
