Allow me to introduce myself.

Hi! I’m Kaitlin [Katie, Kate, Katiebug, Katiedid, Katiegirl, Katiecakes, Mrs. Standley, Mrs. S, Tippie, Tippiegirl, Tip(s)] Yeah, I think that about covers it. Anyone else have a million names!? Tippie is my maiden name and it’s just one of those names that’ll stick around, ya know?

Regardless of how you get my attention, I hope this blog keeps yours!

If you asked me a year ago, heck even a month ago if I would’ve started a blog, you probably would’ve gotten a response that sounded something like this “Hmph, yeah right.”

So why the change? Well, if I’m being completely honest, I don’t have a solid answer for you. Have you ever had a moment or a time where you were just drawn to something, like it was calling your name? Well this “blogging” was calling mine. I felt compelled to open up and share with you all a glimpse into my life, more specifically speaking my life with Cystic Fibrosis. I owe it to myself to share MY story and to my fellow CFers to spread awareness.

So here you have it, the birth of Lungs N Bergamot Roses – It’s More Than Just a Lifestyle.

Are you asking yourself, “What is Cystic Fibrosis?” Don’t worry because I promise to tell you aaaaall about it. But I wanted tell you more about myself and not just myself with CF because it doesn’t DEFINE who I am, it’s just a PART of who I am.

So, Hi! I’m Kaitlin [Katie, Kate, Katiebug.. JUST KIDDING! Let’s not go through that spiel again. Welcome to my lifestyle blog!! I’m a fur mama, a wife and a nurse. A lover of Jesus, coffee, essential oils, leggings, my husband’s t-shirts and naps with my 2 spoiled pups!

Here on this blog, my intent is to be real, to be raw, to be transparent and most importantly to be me. After all, there’s only one YOU! We’ll chat life – the good, the bad and the ugly. We’ll chat love, family, work, those annoying but necessary trips to the grocery store, does the toilet paper go over or under? – but seriously, the endless climb up the Mount Everest of laundry, and why can’t anyone find the damn matching Tupperware lid! Simply put, just all the things.

So welcome to Lungs N Bergamot Roses.

Rock on,
