Karen and Jon met at Starbucks (for real): Karen transferred to a Chapel Hill location fresh off of her MA in Anthropology at UT Austin, walked in for her first shift and there was Jon. The rest is history!
Karen manages a bakery/cafe that specializes in local, seasonal baked goods, and in her spare time horseback rides (eventing, Novice for those who horse-speak), cooks, daydreams and alternately trashes and organizes the closet.
Jon is a Chapel Hill native who studied Jazz drumming in his time at UNCG. He works in the wine industry now, and plays support staff in the kitchen at home. He makes a mean roast chicken, and can pair the perfect wine with it!
Both Karen and Jon love food (most vacations are planned around where to eat), the relentless pursuit of the perfect pizza, drinking wines new and familiar, exploring new places, taking walks and meeting new people.
