The real me

Hey y’all! I’m Kara, a mom of 3 in the rural parts of Florida. I’m a southern girl at heart, and I love all things natural. If you’re here from the start, you’ll read me telling my story starting at college, leading up to present day. Writing is therapeutic for me, so that’s the driving force. I hope y’all enjoy it and stick around a while.
