I am Katy Murray. A believer, a wife and a red head.
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. I'm learning to fully trust God and his plan for me. I dream, way too much. I LOVE socks, cute socks, fuzzy socks, warm socks, socks!
