The June Project is a series of gratitude/love letters written to specific places and times that hold meaning and value for people.
Started in the Spring of 2018 as a way to say goodbye to the city of New Orleans, The June Project is evolving into a way of honoring the people and places who make the world a zestier, brighter, and more joy-filled place.

My name is Kat, short for “KATHRYN MARIE GET DOWNSTAIRS RIGHT NOW,” (Mom).
A former Philadelphian and quasi-nomad, I’ve called New Orleans “home” for the past three years. While living in the Crescent City, I had the supreme luck and privilege of running around with kids and adults for a living.
Sometimes, I trained for crazy races.
Occasionally, I even wrote essays about running in said races.
But most days, I found myself next to the bayou, sprawled out in the grass, pondering the complexities of screw-top wine bottles with friends.
I love many things, including, but not limited to: coffee, sunshine, peanut butter, kids, laughing, brass bands, glitter, and people.
Chicago is my *very* recent place of residence and it’s where I will begin my Masters in Social Work this Fall.
This– the letters, the pictures, the !!! of how amazing people are–
is my June Project.
