As a recovering perfectionist, mother of 2, and juggler of many businesses, I know how hard it is to find TIME. Time to reflect on yourself, your choices, and who you’re becoming. I started this podcast to help myself and our readers find their own truths, feel a little more comfortable in their own skin, and design a life well-lived.
Kate started Wit & Delight when she was $10K in debt and worried about how she’d pay the bills if she lost her job. It was a safety net that turned out to be a vehicle to an entirely new career path. A designer by trade and a self-taught writer, Kate has a healthy appetite for cheese, leaps of faith, and good conversation. She is happiest with her head in the clouds, feet on the ground, and a true crime podcast in her ears.
In 2014, Arends began publishing personal essays exploring her journey through divorce, mental illness, and an undiagnosed learning disability. 3.3 Million followers later, Wit & Delight has become a resource for others to feel less alone in the ups and downs of their journey through life. It's a place where readers can find suggestions on where to travel, eat, or shop from someone they’ve come to know as a friend.
Kate lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with her extroverted husband, Joe Peters, son August, daughter Bennett, and their sweet English labrador, Winnie Bear.
