Communications manager by day and local blogger the rest of the time, Karen lives in Hampshire where she writes the blog The Peony Tree, celebrating everything that is lovely about her county! She loves cups of tea, days at the beach, baking (and then eating!) lots of cake, swimming in the sea, finding new places on her doorstep, anything to do with weddings and small animals!
A few questions about nice things...
Who do you most admire?
My parents. For making going to work and looking after a home and family seem REALLY easy! And for making me realise the importance of holidays for spending proper time together away from everyday life!!
What are your favourite possessions?
I’m not really a possessions person…spending time with people, and enjoying other people’s company is much more important to me! I’d much rather go on a day trip somewhere as a gift than receive anything!!
Tell us about your perfect day or weekend...
I’d wake up late and have breakfast in bed, then spend the day at the beach in the sunshine, followed by dinner, drinks and dancing with a big group of friends in the evening. I’m lucky that I get to do this quite often…though my perfect day would have many more hours! 24 just isn’t enough!
What makes you happiest?
Being with my husband, just hanging out and having fun together away from the stresses of everyday life!
What would you like to do in the future?
Eventually I’d love to quit the corporate world and run away with the circus (not literally!). I’d spend more time doing what I love, work more on developing my blog, and explore and discover new places that are waiting to be found.
