I recently gave an interview for Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness-Project, and it’s running today.

So cool! Two of my favorite bloggers in one post! I love how Gretchen describes you:

“Katy has thought a lot about happiness, and how to make choices with her money that make her happier. Her approach might not right for everyone, but her insights are thought-provoking and often hilarious.”

I couldn’t agree with her more, Katy. You are thought-provoking and often hilarious. Thanks for adding to my happiness. 🙂

Loved that book. I read Eat, Pray, Lovelast week too, but I am not about to trek all over the world to be happy. Instead I gathered all the trinkets and read your blog:)

Read you both every day. Part of my daily ritual.

One thing that do deliberately that makes me happy is to sit on my porch and enjoy the weather and the sun and my dog, who makes me smile. Its free happiness, and its not an easy thing to just sit and enjoy.

Hi Katy, I am so happy I found your blog. I’m enjoying the 52/52 challenge very much. Last night, as I was reading American Wasteland, I encountered the part where you were mentioned….and that was SO COOL! I enjoyed this interview more than you know….I am in the midst of having young kids (a 4-year old and baby due in July) and it is very hard for me. Like you, I really do relish my time alone and I need more than most normal folks, I think. I love when other women admit that it’s hard….doesn’t make me feel so…..well….inadequate. It’s always nice to know you’re not alone. So thank you!

I don’t think there is any mother of small children who could honestly say that it’s not difficult. You are not alone!
