happy monday, give me strength and a little rambling

hey there my friends...

popping in with a few little updates...

on the staycation front...
oh my gosh... wow... an amazing response.
sooo excited.

i have a few amazing guests lined up to visit...
goosebumps, i tell ya... goosebumps.

more details coming... i promise.
but please, please spread the love and share the link
cause the more the merrier

it's going to be truly inspired.

a little creative rambling...

do you ever think....
'if only i could go there and take pictures.'
'if only i had a studio to make my art in'
'if only i had those fancy supplies'
'if only'

i'm here to say.... 

stop and just do...
look around you
walk out your front door,
go to the park
walk the back alleys. 
inspiration is EVERYWHERE.
just waiting for us.

want to travel somewhere amazing and take photographs
a studio of your own?
best way to get there or get it....

'just do it!'

the time, the place, the space will find you.

i KNOW it......... 

oh and while i am rambling....

how bout
g r a t i t u d e

can i just seriously stop here and say....
from the bottom of my heart...
i am sooo truly full of gratitude ...
i can not believe there are so many people that take time out of their life to visit here.
to  comment, to email, to encourage....
the fact that you care is soo incredibly humbling

i am

we all need to really stop and consider that...whether we have 10 followers, 100 followers or 1000 followers
think how crazy wonderful it is....that people care about us.

and just say THANKS....


and finally, the image above..

one more day
and we should know if bryce is going to graduate this year.

give me strength to say the right thing
to bite my tongue
to encourage him for all he has accomplished.
to celebrate how far he has come since last year at this time.
honestly it's a miracle...

it's so darn easy to criticize.
i'm really GOOD at it.

so this time around...
i need strength
to say the right thing
no matter the outcome.

thanks for all the messages, the lovely thoughts and prayers for bryce....
i am so grateful.

happy monday....xxo, kim

I'll be thinking of you and sending good energy your way.

And, about just getting out there and doing it . . .

YOU SAID IT, SISTER! Amen. The more I am doing that, the more good things are happening and the more I am finding kindred spirits just like you. I feel truly blessed.

Wow. You took every thought out of my head. Almost all my pictures are taken within a few feet of my house. I try to capture the simple beauty of my life.

Bryce will be fine. I have the matching bookend here. After a very rough junior year, I see some great things happening this summer and he may possibly start college in the fall. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Sending positive thoughts your way. The right words will come to you.

thank you for the words about inspiration - i have needed them.

i pray you find the strength and inspiration you need - i love the network we create to support each other and to give strength, inspiration, hope, and blessings when we may be at a low ebb.

Thank you for this inspiring post and sharing your lovely photos - just what I needed. I shall send you positive thoughts, I have a feeling you'll have the perfect words when the time comes.♥

As I head out on the road today (finally); I'll be thinking of you Kim, and Bryce. And hoping everything works out. And you know what? It always seems to, in the end!

Oh you are so right Kim...

Just do it is the best way forward .... it´s actually my mantra...and it goes like this; stop thinking, stop the worry, put one leg in front of the other and just do it :-)



Thank you for your continued inspiration for all of us.
I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. For Bryce as he finds his way to adulthood {not an easy thing, remember?} and for you as you experience the challenges of parenting. Honestly, Love is all you need.

I will keep you both in my prayers. sometimes some have more growing pains than others. Like you said.....remember the good things, focus on the positive and remember........this too shall pass.

June 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDenise

Yes, strength. You have it, I can feel it. Biting your tongue is one of the hardest things to do as a parent, isn't it? I hope by now that moment has passed and that all went well. I am sending hugs to you, either way.
