A good visual metaphor for Tuesdays. They are just always quite the challenge...

it's about that time

We went to DC last year for our yearly vacation... Where should we go this year? (I'm hoping we continue our good fortune with AirBnB locations...)

This is what happens at the end of the day when you take out your cute little Minnie Mouse hair buns.

It's my birthday today!

mini date night

V has already been asking if we can go to the pool. I decided that while 50 degrees is pleasant, we really should keep the bathing suit attire and outdoor water immersion for warmer days. Btw we were eating snacks by the pool, hence the little chipmunk cheek thing going on.

There's my crazy girl.


It has been far too long since I've been to a concert. Jenny Lewis would be just the ticket.

days to come

My spring flowers are sprouting, and I'm already dreaming of my garden in full bloom.

Drove by the local Dairy Queen and saw that due to the March-ness, it is now open. And furthermore, there have actually been some ice cream-worthy evenings! Loving the springy weather here.

one a day

This week marks the seventh anniversary of Karen in Color! And I am celebrating by rolling out a new version of my fine site. As you can clearly tell, keeping up with multi-photo posts on an almost daily basis gets overwhelming. In fact, I got pretty burned out and retreated into a dark world of non-blogging. So I decided to change things up here. Until the foreseeable future, I've decided to turn this into a photo-a-day site. That way you'll get a little mix of Karen life and various tidbits from the internet too, all in one little dose per day. You can expect a video in there from time to time too. Anyway... enjoy!

my name is karen

and here you will find things that i make and see.
