About Me

Well hello!  I'm a big fan of these pages on other people's blogs, so I thought I would put one up here for anyone who might stumble across my little blog.

My name is Kari, and I'm a thirty-something wife to my hubs and mom to my two little ones, homemaker, and dog lover {especially of my own pup, Arwen}.  I grew up homeschooled basically until I could enroll in the local community college's Running Start program.  I graduated with my Associates degree and went on to university to study history and teaching {I honestly think that's why I love YA and historical fiction as much as I do}.  I'm completely fascinated by Henry VIII's wives and mistresses.

I love to read, but its becoming more difficult to actually find the time for that!  I'm learning how to get it in while my kiddos nap or after they  go to bed.  I've also learned {as many mothers before me} to embrace the audiobook, as some days that's the only kind of "reading" I might be able to get in.  If I'm not reading, spending time with my hubs or Little D, you can probably find me cross stitching.  I'm an avid cross stitcher, and love sewing various patterns for friends and family.

I would love to go to a book convention someday, but as I live in Washington state, most are usually too far away.  But its definitely on my bucket list!

My absolute favorite place to read and just relax is in the confort of my own home.  Doesn't happen too much lately, but its treasured when I do get those moments!

Okay, I totally understand your love for historical fiction and how it derived from a passion for Henry VIII's life and wives. I am also a dog lover sharing my life with six, myself.

Enjoyed visiting your blog.
