after kissing a lot of frogs."
Dating Experience:

Expertise:
Before she married her best friend, Kara had to kiss a lot of frogs — not just frogs, but absolute beastly creatures. One day, her sister said, "What you're doing is obviously not working. Why don't you look for someone opposite of the men you've dated in the past?" She took her advice and couldn't have found a better guy to spend the rest of her life with. Connect with her on Google+.
Background:
Did you read the last paragraph? She's married to her best friend. She wins.
Hobbies:
Going to concerts with her husband, taking photos of her daughter, being a workaholic, learning about and drinking microbrews, and taking weekly trips to the local farmers market.
