Saved by so much grace from my Father above! Being a dog Mom of two, fur is an accessory in this house! Diet Gingerale is my vice. I crave tacos like nobody's business. Red Wine or something bubbly is my social / wind down beverage of choice. I LOVE the smell of Peonies, Lavender, Vanilla and Roses. Dreaming of moving to Charleston, SC, so any chance we get to shoot there, we are IN! I'm Gluten Intolerant - which has taught me so much restraint with all the things I used to love. 

I'm Kara
