Meet the hosts:

Misty (Instagram) is a wife, mother, sister, aunt, mimi, friend, writer, amateur photographer and a dozen other titles. While the years have held seasons as a counselor, counselee (that’s not a word, but we don’t judge, so let’s just go with it), event coordinator, mentor, teacher, casual crafter, freelance writing (including fifteen amazing years within the entertainment and media PR community), and as the owner of this little journey of a site- Rainy Day in May.
When not wearing any of those hats, she has been known to perfect the perfect cheesecake, incessantly watch movies, and it is rumored that she may have invented the very concept of Lip Sync Battle ages before it became a thing.

She loves dogs, yoga (dreams of goat yoga), travel, reading, office supplies and long walks on the beach. (well, anything at the beach actually, especially if it’s the Pacific coast) because the ocean speaks to her.

Meet Katie (instagram), a real-life Renaissance woman only lacking the laundry and kitchen help of that time. Katie is wife to Rick and mom to four teens and young adults. A farm girl, a gardener, a tender of hens and swine and other assorted critters, an accomplished seamstress, quilter, photographer, painter and writer — Katie loves to create. For many years she worked as a graphic designer for a small t-shirt company. She also has worked in alterations at a bridal shop and served as cabin mom and ministered in many capacities at a Christian camp. For fun Katie enjoys a thrift store jaunt, a good conversation and a great cup of tea.
Katie blogs from her little corner of the interwebs.


In the age when we have more opportunities to connect with one another, we as a whole seem to be less connected than ever. As human beings, and especially as women, this is a destructive reality. While we, as women, are front and center with the #metoo movement, there seems to still be a lack of of authenticity among us. There is a growing fear of vulnerability among each another. Where instinct draws us inward, we need to be extending our hands to one another. Here at the Collective we have created a safe space for women to transparently share their stories. Some are beautiful, some are sad, but in one way or another they are all relatable. We, TOGETHER, are moving forward- no comparisons, no judgements, no conditions- with love.
