Shortly after the birth of my third child, I was walking in a park that I had visited hundreds of times before. Suddenly, I noticed this old tree. It was magnificent! So full of color, life and history! Even though I had walked this path before – I never noticed the tree until this moment.
For the first time in years, I felt alive and convicted. I knew right then and there I had to stop letting fear cripple me and that I had to start making decisions that were true to myself.
So, I left my career as an attorney to figure out “who” I was. Turns out, I am a writer who is deeply committed to her family and faith. I also love parties – a lot. For me, there is nothing better than planning an event and then sharing tips and tricks for how to execute that same event in your own home. In addition to my content here, I am a contributing writer for Chicago Parent and Kane County Magazine for my “lifestyle” know how.
At catbattista.com, I explore my relationship with Jesus Christ and my passion for events, parties and get togethers! Faith, Family and Fête. I also discuss my latest “obsessions” under the “Faves“ page.
It is my sincere hope that I can be a resource to you. Whether you are questioning the existence of God, looking for something fun to do with the kids, or just need support planning an amazing event – I am here to help.
