Born and raised in the Southwest, Kimberly blames the desert heat for her dry sense of humor. She also managed to acquire the slightest of Southern drawls while living in South Carolina. Kimberly now lives in Utah with her husband, their 4 beautiful children, and their dog. In her spare time, Kimberly enjoys reading, eating good food, spending time with her family, attempting to garden, and writing about all of the things.
Hey, y’all. I’m Kimberly.
Thanks for dropping in. If this is your first time here, welcome! You’re in the right spot. (That or you’re lost, and that’s cool, too.) Either way, I hope you stick around, read some cool stuff written by this awesome ginger you just met, and share some laughs.
About Kimberly C. Starr
Don’t worry… I don’t usually refer to myself in the third person. But darn it if those headings don’t make things easier to read, so I use ’em anyway!
In any case, here’s 10 fun facts to help you get to know me better:
- I’m a ginger, a nurse, a mom, a blogger, an entrepreneur, and a whole lotta other things. Basically, I don’t like sitting still unless I’m reading or too exhausted to do otherwise.
- I’m a Christian of the Mormon variety.
- I’m married to the perfect guy for me… but I don’t talk too much about him on here because I try to respect his introvertedness and privacy and stuff.
- We’ve got 4 amazing kids – 3 boys and our youngest is a little girl. She’s equal parts spoiled, protected, and able to hold her own with her rowdy, snuggly brothers.
- I’m from Arizona. You’d think I’d be tanner, but… I’m a ginger.
- I love watching British shows, which is probably why I refer to myself as a “ginger” rather than a “redhead”. Well, that and my head isn’t red. It’s pasty-pale white… because I’m a ginger.
- I’ve got two brothers with the same first name… for reals. You see, I’m from a yours-mine-and-ours family, so I’ve got 5 amazing siblings.
- I worked for almost 8 years as a pediatric trauma nurse in a Level 1 Trauma Center Emergency Department. Best job ever! It was great training for having 4 kids. And yes, I miss it.
- I’m an avid reader and 85% of the time that my kids think I’m on Facebook or Instagram, I’m actually reading a new novel. Sometimes that novel just happens to be someone’s status update…
- My life philosophy comes from Finding Nemo: “Just keep swimming.” Life isn’t always easy, but with good friends, good family, an inhaler, and a good therapist, I can keep going. And so can you.
Again, I’m so glad you’re here.
