SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESI started blogging before I got married to my wonderful husband Paul, about this, that and the other but nothing really all that exciting, I’m sure. In early 2008 I converted my blog to reflect my journey as a wanna-be pregnant lady, to that of a pregnant lady, and now as a full time mom of one two. The idea being I could record my life, however dull it may be, so I can someday share it with my kids so they could have a record of their lives.
I “quit” working the week before Courtney was born so I could stay at home. I was planning on taking about 6 months off (ok, I got laid off but that’s not the point) but I found that I love being home with her so much, that that would be my new gig. And then welcome baby #2, and that’s all she wrote folks – SAHM for the long haul.

Life’s been a journey for sure. Now in my early 40’s with a 5 year old and a 3 year old and I’m just feeling OLD. Now I get why people “should” have kids in their 20’s, you have more energy then.  But I wouldn’t trade my life for anything. OK, maybe I’d move us to the mountains of Colorado or the beautiful vistas of Oregon but for the most part, I have no complaints. I get to spend time with my kids, sew to my hearts content and exercise as much as my aging body will allow.

So here is my journey. It evolves. There are definite lapses where the blogging comes and goes and maybe I’ll have a record for my kids, or I won’t. But thanks for coming along and don’t be shy, drop a line and please say hi!

If you would like to get a hold of me, I’d love to hear from you at karen {at} karenchatters dot com.  If you want to steal my pictures or my content, that would be wrong.
