Hello... it's me...


My name is Kathleen, but please call me Kathy! Being called Kathleen reminds me of the first day of school when the teacher does roll call. I’m so used to Kathy that it takes a few minutes for me to realize I’m even being spoken to when I’m called Kathleen.

I am a mom, wife, daughter and sister! I am a native New Hampshirite, and have never lived anywhere else (even during college). I am a long-retired middle school mathematics teacher, and a recently-retired stay at home mom of three. I am currently owned by an Old English Sheepdog.

I love entertaining, dark chocolate, large dogs, antiquing on Sunday mornings, shopping, relaxing with a great book, root beer, iced tea, crafting and purses! I dislike snakes, most vegetables, and my empty nest.

I am a blogger, the woman behind The Modern Nestling (a store for the modern baby), and have a mind that never rests.

I’m very excited about this new endeavor and look forward to sharing the adventures of it with you!
