This week’s Meet A Mom and local Digital Creator, Katy Weaver, is turning her passion for cooking into “a not so side hustle”! You can find her unique and creative recipes on her Instagram site, @whatwearehaving. What I personally love about her recipes is that they are simple enough for even us busy Moms on the go!
Q & A
Hi Katy, where are you from?
I’m from here! Peachtree City! I grew up in this beautiful community attending Huddleston Elementary, Rising Starr Middle School, and Starr’s Mill High School!
How many kids do you have?
I have 1 son, he’s 2-1/2!
What do you love about Peachtree City and surrounding areas?
I love Peachtree City because no matter how much it grows, the city has still preserved the area to have so many trees. You see and feel growth in the community, but it remains well kept. In addition to the beauty, having a little one, the community feels safe, and offers so many activities for little ones.
What’s your favorite restaurant and/or place to shop in Peachtree City and/or surrounding areas?
Food & Drink, now we’re talking! My 2 favorite spots to grab a bite to eat or a cocktail are Palmer’s & Positano. If I’m shopping, you can find me at Lizard Thicket Peachtree City!
Tell us about your career?
I work full time as an Admin for a lumber auditing agency, in addition to my not so side hustle (WhatWeAreHaving), where I write recipes and generate social media content for myself and brands.
How did you decide on this Business?
Full time job aside – my creative business came after years of cooking as a passion. I would always photograph my meals – it may have been not so pretty, but it was clear.. I loved cooking, eating, and taking photos of food!
What is the best thing about your job?
My creative job truly speaks to my soul. Other than being with my son, being in the kitchen, and the entire creative process feels like home. It’s truly my happy place; from recipe creation, cooking, styling, photographing, editing.. I love the entire process.
Advice for Mom’s or a Mom hack you would like to share?
As someone who was very organized (pre-mom – LOL!) and needed a full plan for every moment. Take a deep breath and go with the flow, you won’t regret it!
