Fire = Ryan. Wife = Me (Katie/Kaitlin/Kait…whatever you want to call me!). We are newlyweds (4.8.17) living in  Ohio. Ryan is a firefighter… and I am his wife! And there ya go, the story of the website name.

What is Fire + Wife all about? Life. Plain and simple. You’ll learn more about us, get advice/tips, and read about lessons learned on this crazy journey.

Why blog? I’ve had a blog off and on for over 10 years now. At times it has been anonymous because I wasn’t sure of my writing and other times I only kept it to myself. The last blog I started got put to the back burner when life got crazy. So here I am now, opening up for the first time to everyone.

A little behind the scenes: I have a degree in psychology from Eastern Michigan University. I started my career in social work in 2012 which brought me to Arizona. The man I loved brought me back to the Midwest to live and hopefully soon start a family.

Read along and find out how we met, why we are here in Ohio and have a picture in Arizona State clothes (Go Sun Devils!) and what our plans are for the future. I can’t wait to meet all of you!
