away for the weekend: About Me

About Me

hello - and welcome!

Hi, my name is Karen and I am an empty-nester, married to my best friend - 30 plus years! We live and work in the Boston area where weekdays tend to be a bit hectic. On weekends we escape the hustle and bustle - heading for the mountains of Vermont where life seems to slow down a notch.

Welcome to our little getaway which we fondly call "Away". Here in my little corner of the blogosphere, you'll see a little of this and a lot of that - mostly about our weekend downtime (trust me, stories about my workaday life are just plain boring). I enjoy reading, cycling, knitting, and taking pictures of just about everything I see.

I'm really happy you're here, and thanks for dropping in!
