Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Our state has quite the green thumb — I mean, just take a look at all the gorgeous bluebonnets it produces each year. We also have some of the best strawberries in the country, and the people of Poteet have been capitalizing on that for 70 years. The annual Strawberry Festival is being held next weekend, April 13-15, and it would be a crying shame if you missed out on some of the best fruit you’ve ever tasted.
