Meet Cady


Hi! My name is Cady McKim Sinks. Wife to Alan, momma to Aidan.  Dog owner, knitter, and chocolate lover. I have a creative soul and am passionate about documenting life.

Some things you should probably know about me:

Cady is a family name, not my parents attempt at creativity. To relieve you of any pronunciation pressures, know that “Cady” is pronounced just like “Katie.”

I am a Virginia girl who has lived in exactly four cities: Fairfax, Charlottesville, Arlington, & Alexandria.  As a result I sometimes drop “ya’ll” and love to sing the Good Old Song.

If I’m not holding hands with one (or both!) of the men in my life, I’m probably holding a camera or knitting needles.

Still want to hear more?

As a child I wanted to grow up to be Robin Hood.

One year I tried to change my name to Cris because I didn’t like Cady and had a very real addiction to the movie Adventures in Babysitting.  Cris now has her own persona in our family.

I never knew my hair was wavy until I was in my mid-twenties.  Apparently my husband likes it best this way so I wear it straight 87% of the time.

My husband and I met in 2009, rescued a lab/pit bull mix in 2010, got engaged later that year, married in 2011 and had Aidan in 2012.  In the midst of all that, Alan did two tours with the Department of Defense to Afghanistan, I ran a marathon, and we bought a townhouse.  What can I say?  I like to pack a lot into a day .  It also helps that I have a remarkable husband who listens to my wild ideas, believes in my huge dreams, and loves our little family fiercely.  The fact that he cooks every meal, walks the dog, and has no aversion to cleaning the bathrooms helps as well. Basically he’s the best thing since pants with pockets so I love having him around.
