Much Love, Kari

We all have stories to tell.
We all come from places of loss, joy, celebration, tragedy, hope, resilience, persistence,
and Grace.
We all have a desire to love and be loved, know and be known, celebrate and be celebrated.
So, when a blogmet Nicole and she invited us to share our stories, I nervously said yes.
She created the "much love, me project" and it is designed to uplift and encourage
people through stories about life, love, loss and hope.

How my story has shaped me and my outlook on life

  1. a shocking and beautiful story, thank you for sharing!

  2. Just read your story, and I am so touched and inspired by your bravery. Thank you for sharing! Can't wait to check out your blog a little more :)

  3. I feel so honored to call you friend. You are a strong, brave, and beautiful woman. Your story has inspired me to live more truly to myself. You are such an example to me, and I love you so, so much.

  4. I wasn't prepared for this--I had tears streaming down for most of it. Oh, but I'm so glad I made it to the end! That picture of you in the ocean is so symbolic! What an honest, from-the-heart, BEAUTIFUL post!

  5. I am so glad you shared your story!
    My husband and I have a very dear friend who lost his wife in a car accident 3 months after they were married. It was only 5 months ago but it feels years away. I still remember sitting in the hospital room waiting to hear the fate of my dear friend's life, only to hear she had passed while the doctor was speaking with us. I had tears as I read your story because I HATE hearing that this happened to someone else and the heartache is still very new.
    It was so nice to hear your perspective because we have had such a hard time knowing what to say to our friend while he grieves. We except to be there every step of the way for him and do whatever he needs us to. It is so encouraging to read your blog and see that life goes on and our friend will be okay.

    I probably have a million questions to ask you, but I will end here for now.
    Thank you again,
