Hi there! Welcome to the KLP Blog, a journal about all the things that I love about life. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm kayla.

When prepping for vacation, I am sure we all do very similar things: Find a new swimsuit, try to lose a little weight to rock that new swimsuit, and plan out what restaurant we will hit up (unless I am the only one who views eateries as major attractions…). My goal this month adds one […]

The transition from December to January can be heavy for anyone, but it is especially so for small business owners. We leave the hustle and bustle of a joyous holiday season—one that is full of customer service greatness and fun—and head into a new business year. A brand new Quarter One. As I am sure […]

Senioritis is a real phenomenon. Trust me; I am a high school teacher. It’s with good reason, though: It is an exciting time in our lives. Like the birdie sitting on the edge of the nest, it is time to fly or fall. Despite the potential dangers, it is thrilling to know that big changes […]

It’s already November 4. That means for many of you, Holiday Shopping has already started and may even be done.  For me, well…at least I am acknowledging it’s November, which means next month is December.

You know what I need to do in October? Rest. Since June, it has been an absolutely wonderful grind. For someone who doesn’t know how to slow down, it was perfect. I photographed sixteen weddings. My thesis for a Master of Arts in Communication was defended and submitted. I started my thirteenth year of teaching. […]

It is already September, folks, so I need to put some first things first for fall: Back to school. (Cue Adam Sandler from “Happy Gilmore.”) In case you didn’t know, I am a teacher as my day job. For the last twelve years, I have taught middle and high school English and social studies all […]

It is already the first of August, and I definitely need to put first things first. And for me this month, that means getting caught up on everything. I have never needed organizing in my life so much as I do right now. What do I mean? Well, since the last day of school on […]

FIRST THINGS FIRST: AUGUST IS FOR ORGANIZING

This is my tattoo, the skyline of Jerusalem. The design for this tattoo came from a office supply/home goods company in Israel; in exchange for the artwork, they asked for a photo of the finished product, which I sent it to them...two and a half years later.

Desktop publishing. It’s the best, am I right? Right?! OK, I get it: I may be in the minority with how excited I get when I can hop into InDesign, throw down some text boxes, pop in a few photos, and make a document that is just as pretty as it is informative. This has […]
