My actual life.

I grew up in Richmond, Virginia in the peculiar named area of Short Pump.

I was a gymnast in high school. Now I look back and wonder how?

I went to Virginia Tech. When asked what a Hokie is I will always reply, “I AM!”

I have two dogs - Gracie and Jackson,  who I kiss and sing made-up songs to daily.

I co-own an Etsy shop called Small + Snarky. We screen print inappropriate baby onesies.

I own a small business, Kara Anne & Co - a small design shop (aka me) that specializes in creating cohesive visual looks for couples gearing up for their wedding day as well as creative entrepreneurs making their side hustle a reality.

I like making things and working on all different types of projects.
