To live life and be happy.
I am Karen. I got married in October, 2005 to Shane, my high school sweetheart. We live outside of St. Louis, MO in Southern IL. I am a recovering slob. I am passionate about cheese, it is my goal to make it my life's work. I love to travel and learn. I love to go out, but I am a homebody at heart.
You have to live for yourself, because try as you might, you will never be able to please everyone else.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
cheese, cooking, reading, theater, music, movies, going out with friends, travel, writing, acting, learning...
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: I love movies, especially anything with Audrey Hepburn. I like movies that make me think and examine myself, but I also like movies that make me laugh.
Music: Carbon Leaf, Ani DiFranco, Counting Crows, Imogen Heap, Hayley Westenra...I'll pretty much listen to anything, really.
Books: I am a total bookworm. My favorite book ever is Jane Eyre, but I will read anything I can get my hands on.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Seeing the Grand Canyon from helicopter was truly amazing.
