Hi, I’m Karen! I’m a first grade teacher turned stay at home mom turned part time substitute teacher. I’m a die-hard University of Florida Gator, lover of all things HGTV, self-proclaimed “foodie”, and always striving to be a better me. I left my home state of Florida for Pennsylvania, then North Carolina, and now back to Florida, to help my husband pursue his career and take advantage of the opportunity to stay at home with my sweet boys and explore new areas of the country. We are always looking for new things to try and adventures to be had. This blog serves many purposes for me- It’s a virtual scrap-book for us Smiths, my forum for sharing cooking adventures with my boys, a creative outlet where I can share home projects, as well as my way to keep in touch with friends and family that are far away.
These are the most important people in my life. My college sweetheart, Chris. My sweet and soulful first grader, Brady. My funny and energetic Pre-K kiddo, Nolan.
I like to document what we eat, where we travel, and the overall chaos that is our life!
