I'm Kate

I first started Wit & Delight in 2009. In 2013, I began publishing personal essays exploring my journey through divorce, mental illness, and an undiagnosed learning disability. That experience showed me style without life is just imitation.

Hi, I’m Kate! Welcome to my happy place. Wit & Delight has changed my life forever for one reason: you.

Second Guessing Myself


In taking life’s little pleasures seriously, that a home is a haven, that beauty isn’t always pretty, and that a relationship with oneself is the ultimate love story.



What we wear should make us feel authentically ourselves-- powerful, confident, unique.

Authenticity is what you do when not seeking approval for your actions.



Arrow Alone

We’ve taught over 24,000 students how to craft their message and social media presence. A clear brand strategy goes miles deeper than graphics and copy. These courses cover the foundation of everything I’ve put into Wit & Delight, and I myself continue to use these strategies on a quarterly basis.

We purchased a 1950s Cape Cod rambler in St. Paul in 2020, full of wild colors and “dated” bathrooms. We’ve been slowly remodeling it room by room and documenting the process along the way. 

MY better half

Always keeping it real, Joe’s true talent is bringing comic relief to almost any situation. You’ll find him as a regular guest on the W&D Instagram account. Fun fact: Joe’s shoe collection is far more extensive than mine. 


Winnie Bear is our unofficial team mascot/therapist and Pearl is our court jester. Together, they are the most cuddly English Labradors you can imagine (and, yes, their hair is everywhere). 

Our Human Babies 

August Joseph and Bennett Katharine are our two children, born sixteen months apart. While they don’t show up in the W&D feed every day, they run the show and provide endless entertainment in our lives.
