About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Relaxation to me is when my kid is napping! During that time, I enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine surrounded by my organic container garden. I listen to the sounds of nature and enjoy watching butterflies flutter by. I am about to go enjoy that RIGHT NOW! 🙂

  2. I tweeted! By the way, happy birthday (mine was last week)! 🙂


  3. I just tweeted but I would have wished you a happy birthday without the incentive of cool prizes — but I can be bought too! Hope you’re having a happy, happy birthday!

  4. No joke- a cup of earl grey or chai tea is like a relaxing hug in a ceramic mug! Happy Birthday!!

  5. Nothing relaxes me more than a hot cup of Earl Grey, a little Johnson & Johnsons Bedtime Lotion on my hands, and a good novel while curled up on my favorite wing chair.

    And really, any flavor tea will do!

  6. Sorry, I just realized that my comment sounded snarkier than I meant it to sound! Chalk it up to doing too many things at once w/ far too many tabs open. My point was I hope you’re having a butt-kicking birthday! And yes, I love tea, too, so winning her delicious sounding teas would just be the sweetener in a nice steaming mug of tea to me!

  7. Tweet! Tweet!
    Happy Birthday!

  8. Nothing relaxs me like a pedicure. But if I can’t do that, then reading a book on the couch with Moekitty & husband near by.

  9. I tweeted! @suzstreats

  10. I tweeted!!!! @mylifeinsideout

  11. The thing that relaxes me? A cup of hot tea and some internet…

  12. Drinking tea each evening & a hot bath are what saves my sanity each and every day!

  13. Jackie Mask says

    The thing that relaxes me the most (other than paying for a massage) is a nice hot bath and a good book. That is my quiet time away from everything.

  14. Jackie Mask says

    Tweetle Dee!!


  15. Oh man, when I need to relax there is ONE thing that will help me do it! Practicing my flute. I could be in emotional breakdown mode with my mom on the phone, and she’ll always ask if I’m going to practice – to which I sobbingly reply yes. Making beautiful music is the ultimate calmer downer!

    Also tweeted – @fluteitup!

  16. Quiet relaxes me the most.

  17. House to myself, a glass (or three) of wine, and catching up on the DVR!

  18. I tweeted!


  19. water relaxes me! be it just looking at it from a beach, soaking in the tub or floating in a lake or pool.

  20. A bowl of ice cream and greasy anatomy relaxes me….especially girl scout cookie ice cream.

  21. I tweeter it……butterflidisco

  22. Backrubs relax me the most! 🙂

    Thanks for the awesome birthday giveaways!

  29. hot beverages are relaxing to me, laying on the couch zoning out, reading, watching TV (bad i know!) 🙂

  30. I am most relaxed when I am not in charge of anything. Alone time.. when hubby takes the kids and there is nobody home. Peace…. quiet…. ahhhh it’s lovely!!

  31. relaxing happens when the child is happy. weird, right? He’s sitting on my lap all happy like right now and I’m totally relaxed. the coffee I’m drinking helps, too!

  33. if i have enough time, crafting relaxes me. otherwise, just lazy saturday movies!!

    Happy Birthday! 🙂

  36. I’m most relaxed when I am lying on the couch reading a great book while my daughter is napping.
