It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.

I can’t remember the last Memorial Day weekend without a softball tournament or the Dixieland Jazz Jubilee. Ah summer (ok, not officially) with three days of nothingness. Friday night we walked to our favorite sushi place, Moshi Moshi. I love … Continue reading
Steve and I have had three studios. Early ’80s, Tackett-Barbaria Design’s first home was in the first floor of a downtown Sacramento Victorian. We shared a conference table and coffee pot with Della’s studio, upstairs. We had the typewriter and … Continue reading
Compartmentalize, she asked from the back seat of the car. What does it mean? It means you can organize your emotions, like a perfect silverware drawer, so you can find and use what you need. Your mom isn’t very good … Continue reading
