About Me


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.

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.
