Karina Chronicles

Meet Your Maker: August Edition

Every month our founder, Karina Cousineau shares with us some of the things that she’s loving.  Here’s what she likes for August!

 

1) Kefir
This is my new favorite drink! Why did I wait so long to try this ancient anecdote for modern maladies in my life?  Yum!

2. The Dressmaker of Khair Khana
Kamila Sidiqi’s life changed overnight when the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan. After her father and brother were forced to flee, she became the sole breadwinner for her five siblings. Banned from school, confined to her home, and armed only with determination, she picked up a needle and thread to create a thriving business that saved their lives.

3.  Ted Allen
The other night I went to a book signing for Ted Allen’s (Chopped & Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) new cookbook – what fun! Yummy drinks and stories of politics and food!


4. Chill, relaxing times
The countryside is the place I love to relax but recently I have had uninvited guests up on my porch! It  must have been the peach pie. (Check out this bear  in a hammock!)


5. My dad

This past month my sweet dad was hospitalized and gave us all a scare.  Thankfully he is recovering wonderfully!  Thank you for all your well wishes and happy 84th birthday, dad!  You are a funny, generous, supportive and loving guy and I am so happy to know you!
