Carolyn Karpinos - retired attorney married to Ralph Karpinos who is also an attorney here in Chapel Hill. We have children and grandsons in Nashville, Tennessee and Brooklyn, New York. I am an avid photographer, enjoy cooking, and love to read. My husband is a runner and swimmer and bakes the best bread in town! We have travelled extensively in this country and are doing some international travel these days as well. I lived in Accra, Ghana for a few months and have also spent some time in Haiti as a volunteer. Chapel Hill and Carrboro are wonderful small towns - very cosmopolitan and somewhat funky - but still rooted in their southern heritage in that the pace of life is not too hurried and people are friendly. We welcome guests to this area and like being hosts!
