My favorite part of the session (but I use the word “Favorite” lightly because the whole session rocked!) is when I had Leticia and Brad […]

I am Katy Murray. I am a red head, a believer and a wife.
I love adventure. Any adventure.
I love to travel. Anywhere.
I don't laugh out loud during movies, even when I find them funny (Ask my husband and close friends). I tend to plan, too often. I like routine. I try to see the good in every day. Math is NOT my strong suit. I'm learning to fully trust God and his plan for me. I dream, way too much.
