Hi, I'm Karen. Nice to meet you! I am a midlife-grandma blogger who writes about life and travels with the occasional product review thrown in for good measure.
My hobbies are artistic photography, writing, gardening and traveling. I like to find beauty in the small stuff. Including my grandsons :)
I live in from the suburbs of Milwaukee, along the Fox River.
I'm the proud mom of 2 incredible children, my daughter is 30 and my son is 33. I have two grandsons and three dogs: Cho Cho (named after ChoChoSan in Madame Butterfly), Ted E. Bear, and Holly Bolly.
I shoot with a Nikon D800.
My lenses are: 105mm micro for macro shots, and 28-300mm for everything else.
I've been to three BlogHer Conventions:
San Diego in 2011
NYC in 2012
Chicago in 2013.
I am so proud to be part of the BlogHer community. Seeing how many women out there are like me with something to say inspires me to keep writing.
I am a 5 year breast cancer survivor!
