My name is Karen, I am a wife and mom to 5 amazing children from 17 down to 2.5. I am still claiming to be 30 something for another 6 months before I actually enter into my fabulous 40’s! Growing up on Long Island, New York was awesome but life in Houston is pretty fabulous too! I homeschool 4 of my 5 children and we love almost every moment of it (have our challenges just like any other family, – keeping it real)! I decided to begin this blog in order to share a part of myself with the world, and offer you tips and ideas that I have learned over the last 17 years as a wife, mother, and home manager, to help you in your daily life, encourage and support you and be the best you, that you can be!
