Weekday Afternoons from 2p-7p
Kara Franklyn was born in Southern California but grew up in Northern California. Walnut Creek will always be considered somewhat "my home!" I went to school there, fought and played with my brothers and sister there, had my first heart broken there and made lifelong friends that no matter where I live will always be there! I have lived in several cities in California, but could never see leaving the state. I love it way to much. Except for the highest gas prices in the nation, From Monterey to Tahoe, DisneyLand to the San Francisco Zoo, it just doesn't get much better! I have married to my husband Pete for almost 2 years now. He is an amazing person, who makes me laugh, think and become stronger as a person every day. No matter what the situation is, it's the little things that can make it the most special! I have a close family filled with the craziest, most fun and very loving brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and a very fiesty mom. I love to go whale watching. In fact, Pete fufilled one of my all time dreams. Since I was a kid, I have loved Beluga whales. I always told my Mom I wanted one and would keep it in our bathtub. She said it wouldn't fit, likely story, she just didn't want to have to take care of it! ha. I went back to Conneticut and New York to meet the rest of Petes family and there is an aquarium in Mystic Conneticut where you can swim, pet the Beluga's! It was so amazing! They are so sweet and remind me of Pillsbury dough boys of the sea! I have been so blessed in my life. No matter what the situation, good or bad, I have been surrounded by family, friends and Pete who have been there to share the laughter or the tears. They have helped me to become a better person who appreciates that no matter what, if you have family and friends, life, no matter what comes your way can be appreciated and even laughed at!
I just got back from Washington State where I saw my nephew get married. Pete and I were in Spokane for their first snow, which I loved, but Pete being from the East Coast was a bit jaded! It was a beautiful wedding and the families just meshed together, a memory I won't soon forget. Pete and I then went on to Seattle to do a little sightseeing. They call it San Francisco's sister city and I can see why!! All tho, Pikes Peak was cool and watching them catch the fish was fun! But like the las Vegas sign and other things you see on tv first, it's a lot smaller in real life, but still fun!! We also HAD to see the gum wall per Pete. It's a wall where people that have visited from all over have placed their chewing gum, it also comes up as the 2nd most germiest place to visit. Nasty but I guess I can say I have been there?!!! It was a week of family, laughs and a few ewws (gum wall, man peeing on our rent a car) but I tried to stop and enjoy each moment, wondering when our whole family would all be together like that again and appreciating the time Pete and I had together. Life is crazy for us all, work, kids, whatever is going on in your world, one day I am changing my Godson/nephews diapers or hearing him tell me he loves me for the first time (without his mother telling him to tell Aunt Kara you love her) the next he is a grown up adult on the way to starting a family. Please enjoy the moments, they go so fast and are so precious.
