I was thinking the other day if I had ever written an introduction post and I went threw my archive and did see anything! If I skipped over well then this will be a better post for myself!
My name is Karen Satterfield and I live in the geographic center of Tennessee. Which is also known as Murfreesboro. Little history lesson, it was the capital for 16 days before they realized Nashville would be an ideal place, hence the rivers. I'm 22 but soon to be 23 on June 9th. I have a dog named Darla and a cat named Picasso. My favorite painter's are Dali, Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh and my favorite photographer's are Ansel Adams, Dorthea Lange, and the many from iN-PUBLiC. I'm more of a photographer then a painter but both are my great escapes from the world. I love how there is so much creativity around us and how it's a great resource for ideas.
I'm currently slowly making my way threw school, I feel like the tortoise of the Tortoise and the Hare when I hear the word college. I'm wanting to major in Photojournalism and work for some kind of newspaper. I have hopes to work at the local one, The Daily News Journal or maybe another kind of small town paper. Besides wanting to be a photojournalist I have dreams of opening up my on diner and creating my oh so amazing burgers and maybe even have my sister join in. Only a dream but still a tasty one.
I have a sweetawesomelovinghandsomeamazingkindhearted-boyfriend who I love so much. We have been together for 2 1/2 years and loving every minute of it. Our story of togetherness is an interesting on and when I tell people how we meet, well it's quite funny. We first meet in high school but didn't know each other till a few years ago. I love my Nathan.
As for fashion? I dress to my mood, how I feel that day, and what I really want to wear. Ever since I can remember I have been obsessed with the 20s through the 60s. They were just glamorous times in my opinion. However, my favorites are the 40s and 50s. With that my dream car's are a 1957 Bel Air, 1948 Buick Roadmaster, 1958 Plymouth Fury, and yeah a few others. I like my classics. Right now I'm cruising in a 1997 Thunderbird, she's a beast and get's me where I need to go.
Well, I think that'll do for now. I'm shy but chatty, sweet but sometimes a spit fire. Any other questions just give me a shout! Salut!

Cabaret is one of my all time favorite beloved movies. I adore Liza and her character Sally. She's so wonderful and dazzling. I must find my Cabaret record that I bought at a thrift store, I have to get my record player from my mother's. And stereo, bunch of others. La sigh...oh Cabaret.

Something I've been meaning to post but never felt it was the right moment till now. I really love my boyfriend.
We have something I have never really felt before. A great feeling of passion and love fills up every inch of my soul. How wonderful it is to be with you. I love you.

Nathan and I took an adventure to Franklin yesterday to just get out of Murfreesboro. To breathe and forget about troubles at home. We went to Woodcraft to pick up a pen kit and I immediately wanted to start making pens again. A hobby I dearly miss, making pens was a great way to relax.
I then wanted to go to Goodwill and was very disappointed by the selection, I only found two things out of a thousand possible things to enjoy. I kind of wish I got the top but we went to Cool Springs Galleria and bought a bag full of Jelly Belly's instead. Which are now all gone. Sad face.
We were hungry and went to the food court. I don't really care for food courts because it's either too loud or smells really bad. However, our hunger got over the smells and even though I think Nathan didn't want to buy food at the food court this one place way calling out name. Charley's Sub's. They are a little bit pricey but a good sub to eat. I had the Chicken California sub and it was like eating a chicken salad, so good. The fries are awesome as well.
As of lately I've been wearing just these three babies. I really love Cover Girl's waterproof mascara, Maybelines light rose blush, and L'Oreal's Mineral base foundation. My face feels light and normal.

As I was walking into the library, my main goal was to print something off and be on my merry way. As I was heading to the computer lab the cover art of a book caught my eye. I haven't checked anything out from the public library in years and I figured I would see what this book was about when I was done printing.

I told Nathan on the way to Red Box that all that food I ate must be Elvis: The Later Years special. Chuy's has a Memorial Plate named after him and a side dish with a soft taco and to taco chips named Priscella. We waited for his aunt and little Ian to get there so we could order with her. I was so hungry and ate so many chip basket's with this amazing chip dip with jalapeños. ¡oh, era tan bueno! By the time I placed my order and the manly man in a pink shirt brought me my BIG plate of food I could hardly eat. So there, Elvis sits, in my cold fridge waiting to be eaten by moi. I think I'll ask Sabrina if she wants to come over and...eat the rest of Elvis with me.

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death.
