My Friday Finds 

Yay! So happy to receive the latest copy of Kinfolk today..... I'm saving it for a quiet moment to open .....and enjoy.... But for now..... a few photos.

I LOVE photographing Kinfolk....the covers are picture perfect.... I love the matte finish......and the fact that they don't have a upc code on the cover is a big bonus. :) Thank you for that Kinfolk!

I discovered something else this week..... my old self......oh's good to be back.....

So much to do and share around here!! 'bursting'....... 

Give Away Opportunity

Before I go.... how 'bout a give away... I'd love to send a copy of Kinfolk to one lovely commentor....

to enter, simply say hello in the comments. I will announce the winner on Sunday.

It's 11:30 pm... time to hit publish and head off to dream land....

Have a beautiful weekend..... 

Love & Gratitude.... xo,

Kim, I am so excited to see you in your photos! Because you pop into my Inbox every week, and because you always share of yourself so openly and kindly, you are a welcome friend. And it feels good to see you! I'm glad you are finding your way - to the new normal - post cancer. You are resilient. You are creative and caring. And you deserve goodness. Keep the pictures and textures and classes coming . . . thank you!

So glad to hear your good news Kim....long may it last.
I read Kinfolk online and I follow their Instagram site; it would be lovely to see a magazine, but I think postage would be rather prohibitive! (I am a Brit ;-)
Lovely to see your photos though.....
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLinda Vincent
good morning Kim ... so glad you are feeling back to yourself once again after your long journey! And it is springtime ... the best time! Thank you for all your inspiration and a chance to win a copy of Kinfolk ... one of my favorites!

Good morning Kim! I LOVE your photos today - especially the ones of you! I too am so glad you are back! and that John is home and has even gone out shopping :).

I had a great time at the S2F Connect even though my connection wasn't great and I had to leave early because of visitors. Hopefully we can do it again!

I would so love to have that delicious Kinfolk mag!

Thanks for hosting Friday Finds!

i have just discovered this magazine and LOVE it... and are you shooting w a D800? that gives me hope! your images are SO lovely... i'd love to know which lens you are using there... and which you prefer... i love closeups, but am just beginning to explore the world of story-telling w a 35mm...
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterpatty
Looks like an interesting magazine. Nice to see your photo-shoot setup!
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKaren
I've never heard of this book . . . off to check it out - thanks for introducing some new literature to me
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRese
I love those shots of you working! For some odd reason, I always enjoy studying other photographers at work; I always wonder what thought processes are going on. And, indeed, the same thing entered my head when I saw these photos. {{ big smile }}
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDotti
It was good to see you last night! I'm hoping to finally get to watch some S2F tutorials today. Your Pintrest has given me lots of inspiration.

Glad you are home, Kim! Have a lovely weekend.
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBetty
I love your blog Kim and although I have commented only rarely, I read often and I'm familiar with your family and your busy life. You are a very talented photographer - some day when I have more time I would truly enjoy taking your classes online……….life got in the way these past few years but may slow down a bit now!
Sending wishes that Spring brings good health to your dear husband, and that your family enjoys the beauty of nature as the days warm up and the sun shines down.
Please pop my name in the hat - I would so love a chance to see one of these Kinfolk mags., they look so interesting.
Thank you - enjoy the weekend.

Happy to hear you are back in the swing of things.... Never heard of your book, Kinfolk... would be very interested in reading it. Enjoy the coming of Spring the joy that it is surely going to bring...

Ah, I didn't know that you were a Nikon girl too. The D800 is one of my treasures. Please put my name in the hat for the book. Thanks!

Popping to check out your find(s) for this week and to see the finds of your followers - all of you are a wealth of inspiration.
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCarol
Kim, its so good to hear that your finding yourself again. You are so passionate about what you do and it shows in your words, work and classes, which btw, Im loving right now! I know first hand all about how this "C" word knocks the breath right out of you…my husband is fighting advanced stages as I write. I wish you well in everything you do and love, and never put down that camera lol! Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Kim, So happy to see you are finally feeling comfortable in your own body, in your own home. You all deserve this comfort after being away for so long. And that includes dear Ben. Now don't dive in too deeply at first. Just get back to your routine slowly. We'll all still be here when you are ready to move into second gear. ❤️
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAnne Hartman
Hi! Just found your blog. Enjoying looking around. Thanks for the giveaway.
March 21, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPam
I just discovered Kinfolk... i love the pictures, the articles... sending it to italy is expensive but worth every euro! i'm already at page 117!! i posted some pictures of my coffe-relax-kinfolk moments a couple of weeks ago...and you're right: kinfolk is... photogenic ;)
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbarbara
Lovely photo of what looks like a lovely magazine. I'd love to browse through a copy.
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterNatalie E.
I've never seen 'Kinfolk" so it would be a very special treat for me! x
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJudy
Big HELLO to you Kim. So glad you are back. It just takes a lot of patience and hope. Love you so much. Peg
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeg Rogers
Not familiar with Kinfolk. Wouldn't mind having a peek! At first though…. I was wondering why that girl on the front was wrestling a huge pair of glasses… then i realized they were YOURS on top of the magazine! Made me chuckle. :)
(which is a good thing while i struggle with depression. ugh.)
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterNina G.
Big Hello and love your work!
March 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBrenda Suhr
Good to hear you so cheerful again! I'm enjoying seeing your photos evolve, lovely as ever but good to see you in them too!
March 23, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSharon
Kim - This post was great -- so inspiring to finding something to photograph in my own house. We sometimes take for granted what we have at our disposal, right in the comfort of our own homes! It is wonderful to see you re-connecting with your home and your world.
March 23, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDellen
So good to hear you're back to your old self! And thank you for doing the giveaway.
March 23, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPrairie Jill
This magazine is such a pleasure to curl up on the couch with a cuppa and swoon through it. Thank You Kim for another opportunity to win something fabulous! I can feel your excitement oozing through!! xo
