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.

This is about that moment when you realize the moment you’ve been anticipating and planning isn’t the moment that shows up. That no matter how much you try to control things, there is an even better moment ready to walk … Continue reading
Show hung. Paint dried. Art lit. Brochures printed. Statement written. Wine and cheese procured. Fancy art clothes prepared. Friends and family invited. Daughters home. Five years in the making…it’s here.
Kate is home to help hang Steve’s show. It was overwhelming and wonderful, and kind of weird. He has been painting these pieces since 2009. A few have been out of the house, but mostly it’s what he does upstairs … Continue reading
House of Cards. Thirteen 50-minute episodes. We started on Saturday night and stopped at 1:30 a.m. We picked up Sunday night, and finished the entire season at 12:30 a.m. I may or may not have actually gotten dressed on Sunday … Continue reading
