Karin is a New York Girl living in a Midwest world. A connoisseur of great words, fine bourbon, and strong coffee, she’s married to the love of her life who is also her best friend. The mother of two grown men, she is proud to say that they can cook, open car doors for the ladies, and clean up after themselves (you’re welcome, world). Even though her boys no longer live at home, the big dogs, full of personality, that she’s rescued have taken up any empty space. In a weak attempt to fill all her free time, she enjoys assembling IKEA furniture (sometimes without the instructions for a serious challenge) and knits with friends at her local Starbucks on Wednesday nights.
