Hi, I’m Karen…

I’ve been blogging for over 10 years. I started this site to talk about essential oils. After the COVID lockdowns, I lost my dream bookstore. Now I’m enjoying my life as a trophy wife. I homeschool my kids, garden, and raise chickens. I’ve recently recommitted my life to Jesus Christ. Now I use this site to talk about books, faith, crocheting and knitting, and all the craziness happening in our world today. Welcome to my site!
