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…

Pottery Barn Addiction

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!

Karen xoxo
