Kara Franklyn was born in Southern California but grew up in Walnut Creek where 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 for me! I have lived in several cities in California. From Monterey to Tahoe, DisneyLand to the San Francisco Zoo, it just doesn't get much better! I am married to my best friend, Pete makes me laugh, think and care about what is happening in our world! I am blessed to have family and friends who care about me and laugh at my really dumb jokes!!
When I get to work in the morning, it's early and still dark, so I'm not always sure what kind of a day, weather wise it will be. I just ran out to my car for something and what a great day it is!! Not hot, but not cold, a light breeze, everything is still green and just a beautfiul day! The sky is so blue with just a few puffy clouds and I had to stop, just for a moment, before going back into the craziness that is work and enjoy what a great fall day it is! Standing there, I could hear the faint sounds of kids in the school yard playing. Such a great moment! Seriously. Sometimes life is so hectic, we all have so many places to be and so little time to get there, but I've said it before and I am trying to do it myself at least once a day, just to take a moment and just be grateful for what is around me. It may not be a big trip to another country or a job upgrade, no one is surprising me by cleaning my house, (hee) but what a great day! You can feel Fall in the air and all the fun stuff that comes with those next few months!! Even if you are a Summer fan, enjoy the moment! I know! All that from just running out to my car for a minute!! But sometimes it truly is the little things that make your day more enjoyable!!
