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 write about stuff

It December, I committed myself to 26 Acts of Kindness as a tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook. I wrote about it here and was certain I would be able to blast through in no time. I envisioned it … Continue reading

One more Mendocino post (interrupted just for a moment to celebrate Alex’s birthday yesterday). We were scheduled to leave on Sunday, and while we knew we had to come back home, we weren’t quite ready. We meandered out through Van … Continue reading
Oh, how can it be that you are 19 today? Didn’t you just fly into the world yesterday, all four pounds nine ounces of spitfire? You, my baby girl who ate dirt at the park, played ball and rode her … Continue reading
Day two in Mendocino. Lazy coffee (and toast, see previous post), drive to Fort Bragg with the music loud and the sunroof open. Glass beach, which is a not-so-secret dump/beach place with sea glass in place of sand. Yes, covered … Continue reading
We just returned from a timewarp trip to Mendocino, trippy in so many ways (pun may or may not be intended). Our very first trip here was in 1977, camping at McKerricher State Beach. Many camping trips with our Chico … Continue reading
To frame this up, I love the Tour de France. As a family, we’ve watched 24 of them (yes, we started when Kate was an infant). We love cycling as a sport. Every year we are disappointed when the rider … Continue reading
