I’m Katie. I’m 29. I’m married to Jay. We have one son, Elijah (you can call him Eli), born in May 2012, who in my unbiased opinion is simply the most adorable child. You can’t argue with the ears, I mean really. We have 2 cats, Jacques-Imo and Karma, they are not pretty great most of the time, unless you find mounting each other and waking the baby up to be pretty great. But they’re soft, so that’s good. We live in Southern California, specific location to be publicly disclosed never.
The name of the blog comes from a condition I was diagnosed with in 2006 called Chiari Malformation. The easiest way to describe it is that my skull wasn’t big enough for my brain (not the other way around, unfortunately), and over time, it herniated into my spinal canal. Big words to say that I had vicious headaches and a variety of other symptoms. I had surgery in November 2007 to relieve the pressure on my brain, a rocky recovery, but am now happy and healthy.
Everything I write here is me, mine and from my brain and life only. Don’t steal it.
I disclose when I am compensated for posts up front so that you never have to read it, but please know that I won’t sacrifice my integrity for a product or for money, so my reviews are my opinions and they are honest. Trust me, you’ll know, I’m an awful liar.
