About Kate

A Belly Full of Words is a space where I fulfil my need to document memories and celebrate the small, happy things. Here you can find thought overspills, little joys, monthly mini book reviews, house renovations, photo diaries, food stories and travel adventures

I’m Kate, a girl who really loves pasta, curling up in a comfy spot with a book, covering the kitchen in flour, capturing all the moments on my camera and seeking out new things; be it a new food, new cities or a new addictive book series. I project manage by day and write by night. Telling stories is my thing and these are the stories from my life.  
When I first opened blogger in my childhood bedroom 18 months out of uni and tentatively starting to find my feet in the adult world, I had no idea what this internet corner would become. Now, rapidly approaching 30, I realise that, so far, it’s a record of my twenties; of growing up. There’s been travel, work, marriage, jumping on the property ladder and a lot of pub trips, fun & tears in between. 

These days, I live in Cambridgeshire with my husband. Before this, we rented a flat with a spiral staircase right next to St Albans cathedral. St Albans is a special place to us; it was our first home together and where we got married but, alas, house prices were not the one so we decided to set up camp somewhere new and see where it took us. We chose our town on a bit of whim, bought the first house we saw and have spent the last two years renovating, painting and turning it into our home. And, by the end of this year, we’re expecting a baby to come along and mess it all up for us. 

It feels like we’re heading into a new chapter but I hope that this space can continue to be somewhere I can document both the joyous and the messy bits of life. If you want to come along for the ride, I’d love to have you. Do bring snacks.
