Hi, I’m Karen.
I started my blog back in 2010 as a way to share our adventures with family and friends.
I’m a wife and
working stay at home mom to a very moody, but wonderful, seventeen year old boy. I just left my job, in search of New Horizons.
I enjoy decorating, crafting and baking. I love the holidays! Christmas and Halloween are my favorites. Any excuse to decorate and have fun!
My guilty pleasure is, of course, shopping! Antiques, Pottery Barn, Target, Home Goods etc…
I have three puppies, Liesl, Gubler and Anneke. Liesl and Gubler are both rescues. Nothing is more rewarding than saving a life. Anneke was adopted from a breeder. All three bring us so much love, life and joy.
I love to travel, and spend time with family. Our family is spread out all over the country, and overseas. I miss them.
I’m a huge Disney fan and have a penchant for anything whimsical. I will never fully grow up. Thus my blog title, The Whimsical Lady.
I’m striving to improve my life with a new fitness routine, weight loss goals, and an overall lifestyle change. It’s slow going, but I’m determined.
Like many others, we are underwater and stuck in a small townhouse. But… I’m determined to make the best of it! I’m getting pretty good at learning to make do with what I have. Truth is… Some days it’s not easy. I’m in a constant battle to de-clutter and learn how to live within my small space.
My goal is to create a warm and inviting home for my family, and fill it with love. It’s the only goal.
Feel free to follow along with my misadventures!
