my big free life

Welcome to My Big Free Life!

Karen created My Big Free Life as a way of sharing her hiking adventures, recipes, and mindset tips and aims to inspire others to live the lives they want without restrictions.

Thanks for visiting!

To create this website I had to learn how to do lots of things that I didn't know how to do at first. It was ok though, as I got some help through online training courses. To find out more about the ones I used just go to the menu tab Learn Online Skills.

If you'd like to know more about me and my journey then you are welcome to visit the About Me page.

Otherwise, please take your time to enjoy exploring the blogs (new ones come out every week) or contact me on the Contact page.
