Lucky Family

Hey Everyone! We are the Rowells!


This is me, Katrina. I am the {Lucky} mommy and wife to our little family. I graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Communition. Yes, Yes....I learned to communicate well during my 4 years at FSU! On a serious note, my degree emphasis was in advertising and marketing. Today, I am a stay-at-home mom to my two beautiful daughters. I love baking, my crock-pot, reading, photography, spending countless hours on Pinterest, and all things faith, family and fun. On any given Saturday I love to get up at the crack of dawn with my parents to go yard sale-ing and consignment shopping. I love finding a good deal! I am also a country girl at heart. I love to fish and hunt. I grew up down a red dirt road and that dirt gets in your blood. My family means everything to me. I feel truly blessed.

This stud is my husband, Hunter. He loves all things, hunting, boating. He also has a great love for mowing the yard with his beloved riding lawn mower (everybody has to have a hobby, right?). I've recently started calling him MacGuyver Dad because he has fallen in love with learning how to fix things and creating little gadgets. He also loves to "burn some meat" (a.k.a grilling or smoking something). Hunter knows how to grill the perfect steak, smoke the best pork butt, or fancy up some fresh fish. He is a great chef and we work well together in a kitchen. I love this man to the moon and back. He is the true champion of this family... always loving, always providing, always giving his all to his relationship with me, his kids, his family, and his friends.

In 2010 we were blessed with our first little addition, Miss Karabella (Kara, Karebear, Punky). I can say that Karabella is the quintessential "daddy's girl."  She loves nature, being outside, playing with her toy farmhouse, and making her Sissy laugh. She reminds me so much of me at that age, loves playing in the dirt looking for lizards, bugs and worms, but doing so with her favorite pair of shoes and a pretty bow in her hair. If she's inside, she is dressing up like a princess, playing with her dolls, and "cooking" up some grub in her kitchen. She is a well rounded little girl and it is such a joy and blessing to watch her grow.

And in 2013 we were graced with another sweet girl, Miss Evelynn (Evy, Evy GG, Sissy). She is starting to let her little personality show. She has the sweetest giggle, adores her big sister, and is a complete Mommy's girl. Evy looks so much like her daddy when he was younger. While Kara is all porcelain skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes (much like Mommy), Evy has dark hair, brown eyes, and it already sporting a nice tan (just like her daddy!) After her first summer in the sun, she has the cutest tan, all baby white in her little fat rolls. She started to crawl at six and half months, and is already picking herself up to stand around furniture. She has a persistent and dedicated personality just like Kara. 


Hunter and I met in middle school. We were friends all through high school and then started dating in college. We dated for two years, were engaged for one year and married with thousands of other happy couples on the very blessed date of July 7, 2007, or 7-7-7 {Lucky Sevens}. It hasn't always been an easy road for us, but I could not imagine this journey with anyone else. If you would have told Hunter and I fifteen years ago that we would marry each other and start a family, we both would have laughed in your face. We were really good friends, but such opposites. His crazy, party boy to my calm, studious girl..... it would have seemed so crazy to our 14 year old selves. It's pretty amazing how God plans each and every one of our lives, not by what we want but by what is perfect and right in His sight. I always say that "Life's not perfect, but it can be blessed. And I feel pretty {Lucky} at the hand I've been dealt." I got {Lucky} with my stud, blessed with my girls, and I stand amazed at how God works together ALL things.

Hope you enjoy our little {Lucky} Blog. Some post are just devotion-styled excerpts from my heart. Other post are family memories in the making: special holidays, crafts, recipes, and more!  Until Next Time....
