Next up for Kate is planning and saving for buying her first home with her Husbandito Leon (together for 19 years, married for 4…), hitting the road and seeing a lot more of New Zealand to commit to Insta-memory, taking flight to experience some of the big wide world past Aotearoa’s shores, writing a novel or two plus more of all the stuff I’m currently loving…who knows what’s next when you’re having this much fun.
