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 don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
