Welcome

I’m Karen and am so happy you stopped by!

 – writer, journal keeper, photographer, and homebody…
Outdoors or at home in my studio, I am happiest when I am exploring and creating.

I live in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Leaving behind a life buried beneath spreadsheets at an urban university, I now enjoy a lifestyle of writing, photography, and rambling through the forest.

Gingham Notebook is my online journal for sharing my stories and lessons learned (there is always so much to learn!)
I hope you will join me in my everyday rambles.
