Hello! And welcome to Woodbank Lane.


I'm Kathryn -- wife, mom to 3, high school teacher, blogger 

I'm constantly updating, swapping out, and changing around our home. I love a good thrift store, DIY projects, a fresh flower, and blue and white decor. I'd say my style is "updated traditional." I enjoy trying new things and experimenting with new looks in my decorating. Because, after all, if I don't like it, I can always try again.

I also enjoy sharing a few thoughts the years have taught me, and hopefully, an encouraging word from time to time. Those posts are called "A Sunday Thought."

I've also been known to cook, so you'll find food here sometimes, too. I'm usually sharing family recipes, new-to-me recipes from friends, or something newly discovered on the Internet. Look in the "Recipe File" if you need an idea for dinner. 

Thanks for stopping by my little
corner of the Internet! 
I hope you'll find some helpful tips, a little inspiration for all things life and living, 
and smile a time or two while you're here.
