Hello, I’m Kari.
Wife to Darren. Momma to a little boy and baby girl. Believer in Jesus Christ. Traveler. Home maker by day, writer by night.
A Missouri native, I transplanted to Massachusetts ten years ago and have been learning how to put down roots in this hard soil ever since.
I mostly write about the above—marriage, motherhood, faith, travel, and home. I err on the side of honesty with a touch of sarcasm, or, as Jane Austen once said of Elizabeth Bennet, “She had a lively, playful disposition, which delighted in anything ridiculous.” I’m pretty sure Miss Bennet and I would be bffs were she around to grab coffee with today.
The goal of this space is to keep a record of what I’m learning and loving through the seasons of life. I seek to trace God’s redemption through my own story and the stories of others. A highly visual person, I seek to capture and share beauty both in the word pictures I paint and the photos I take of my life and loves.
So why Outside Air? Because there’s no other place I’d rather be than outside, barefoot in the sunshine or sitting on the porch swing watching the rain drops fall through the leaves. Years ago, this space was created as a sort of nature journal and has grown from there.
Thanks for reading and sharing in my story ❤
