Put your party dress on!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008
Hello everyone and welcome to my humble little corner of the blogosphere! Please, take off your coat, grab a drink and stay awhile. For my regular readers, poke around a bit, I had a busy posting week.

If it is your first time here, I'm so happy you made it, please allow me to introduce myself and show you around. My name is Karina and I'm a single girl in my 30's (I turn 33 this Monday, March 10th, in fact), living in the suburbs north of Boston. Here at Candid Karina I write about everything from my job in a law firm, to my eclectic group of friends, to my love of shoes. I also have a blog where I post my poetry and short stories, called Creative Karina, and I've just debuted a pop culture blog, Cafe Karina, dedicated to all things entertainment.

Over on the right sidebar, under the Candid Close-Up section, you can find all sorts of posts to learn more about what makes me...well...me. And for a look into why I'm single, you may want to read any of the posts about some of my past relationships, my recent attempts at dating, or just in general my philosophy on why I love being single...that should clear things up quite nicely, don't you think?

Anything else you want to know, please ask, I'd be happy to answer what I can. Enjoy your stay, don't hurry out. I'm going to go visit some other parties, but "my blog is your blog", make yourselves at home.
