    I loved the video! I am a newlywed who has been following your blog for a long time and I really admire you and Justin. On one of your previous posts you said something that has strengthened your marriage is the thought, “he’s not a mind reader.” That has really helped me with my husband. Thank you for all you do! I love following you and now my husband asks about Kate.

    Fabulous questions and fabulous answers!!! You’re a rock star🌟🤘
    I do have a rather more personal question for you regarding body image. I’m wondering if you could share what size clothes you generally wear? Like in dresses, Jean’s, shorts, skirts, gym clothes etc. It’s helpful for me to see gals out there who roughly look my size and how you wear certain styles. You are beautiful and I’d follow you regardless if you were a sz 0 or sz 20+!!!! Thank you for all you do!!!!!

    Hi Kate,
    I love your page and the practical advice you give!
    Could you recommend a good product for me to use when I want to air-dry my hair? My hair is thin, fine and tends to frizz. I am looking for a product that doesn’t leave it greasy, sticky or crunchy while also adding volume. Any recommendations?
