Having lived most of her life in Minnesota, Cate is in love with this state and all that it has to offer. Raising an 8-year-old and twin 4-year-olds, alongside her handsome hubby Ed, keeps her busy, but connecting with other moms keeps her sane. When she's not chasing her kids around, Cate writes about many of her passions, like fashion, beauty, DIY, and small business, on her blog - she's excited to share those passions with other Minnesota mothers here as well!
