always drinking coffee | forever dreaming about tattoos


Let me introduce you to CoffeeTattoos and the person behind it.

  • I’m addicted to coffee
  • I have five tattoos, and currently have plans for two more (but still figuring out details)
  • Books are like my security blanket – I pretty much always have something to read with me (physical book, kindle, kindle app on phone/iPad)
  • I’m the middle sibling of three – older sister, younger brother – and auntie to my sister’s three kiddos and honorary auntie to some of my best friend’s kids
  • I have been diagnosed Depression with Manic Elements, Anxiety, and PTSD
  • I’ve been on medication in the past, but I currently do not take anything
  • I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement in an open adoption with my daughter and her parents
  • I work in a law firm doing a little bit of everything (admin support, supplies, FedEx, mailings, and IT assistance)
  • I volunteer in the nursery and on the production team at my chuch
  • I’ve been dogsitting for years for family friends, so you might see some furry friends every now and then

  1. It’s interesting to see you’re doing Sign Language in college, I was trying to teach myself through youtube videos and was planning on visiting a local Deaf Hub for more professional training and to put my skills into practise.

    1. I started sign language when I was a sophomore in high school and pursued it in college. And I’m working toward being an interpreter. It’s just something that I fell in love with right away.

      Learning such a visual language through YouTube is extremely difficult because there are different regional dialects, just like accents. And signs for certain things change over time so you can’t be sure that you’re learning the current sign. I’m not trying to discourage you from using the internet to learn, I’m just saying to be careful in what you’re using to teach yourself.

      1. I think it’s great that there are things like that where you live. There is no option in any of my nearby schools to learn sign language. I think you can take college classes to learn it which I plan to when I save up enough!

        I completely understand and am aware of that. It was made clear in many videos that there are different dialects and such and I didn’t go into vast amount of detail in my learning. I simply looked up the basics using many different YouTube videos to compare to ensure I was using a somewhat generic sign to ensure that if I do enjoy sign language before pursuing it and so I didn’t turn up at classes completely clueless. 🙂

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
