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.

We are back and immersed in reality (stories to come). More importantly, my computer is back from the shop. But there are still a few pictures to share. You can’t tell from here that the trip was kind of a … Continue reading
School starts in the morning. She’s a senior now. She’ll drive herself, in her big jeep with the “coexist” sticker (or the rolling oxymoron as I refer to it). She’ll turn 18 this year, choose a college, vote in her … Continue reading
Or, as we will refer to it from now on, the trip that provided (many) opportunities to reset expectations and readjust our reality. Yeah, that. The trip where nothing went as planned. Not one thing. However there were other things. … Continue reading
Unplugging for a week. Going on vacation to a land without internet. See you on the flip side, with pictures, stories and possibly a few bug bites. (Oh, and the cup is available at Urban Outfitters).
So it was a tricky week. It included a broken car, an email implosion (losing all of my 2011 email) and some missed communication (note to self, not everyone can hear the voices in your head). Next week is vacation….it … Continue reading
