Today's find.....More on Creative Connection....

I shared last week about connection.... how valuable it can be on this journey..... How I reconnected with Xanthe..... How I felt renewed....inspired... even joy-filled....

It's so valuable to talk with someone who gets you! Don't you think?

The title of last Tuesday's TT post was..... 'something GOOD is about to happen.....' 

This is the feeling I want to take into each day.... just saying it...feels good. In fact, that's why Iposted it on my site. I thought you all might like the ideas as well....

I also have this the words on post-its around our house.... The bathroom mirror, the back door, the fridge.... and honestly it's been TRUE and POWERFUL inspiration.

That was just over a week ago......and Oh my goodness... so much has happened since then.... I can barely believe it.....Talk about falling into place......

So I just wanna ask......

how 'bout it?

Might 'something good is about to happen' be a good way to start your day as well?

Back to Connection

Since sharing my thoughts on seems I'm not alone.... people NEED connection...... I've had so many emails about this....

Trust me....if you are feeling disconnected...wishing you had someone who gets this.... You are not alone... 

A few nights ago I hosted a Be Still Web Connect.... It was so fun!! Seriously good to see all the lovely names from this community...and read your questions and comments...

Afterward.. more emails saying I feel better... less I know I'm not the only one who feels..... fill in the blank....
and so on.....


And so.... there's some BIG stuff brewing.... centered around community...connection....and inspired conversation.....

More soon...... I'm so excited to spill the beans..... Seriously... ready to burst.... but not quite yet....

Always love to see you here...

Thank you for sharing your finds.....for being a part of this space...... So grateful.

Here's to a beautiful weekend....

I've gone a little hydrangea crazy.... I bought 4 bouquets....  all different colors.... to play with... one last photo....this one... tinted deep purple with a touch of green... quite lovely....

Oh and the florist tells me.... you can revive a hydrangea.... by putting them into as hot as hot can be tap water..... Who knew?

I tried it..and it worked!!

Love & Gratitude.... ♡ 






I've had to postpone the Start to Finish registration for a bit..... while I gather a few more thoughts....  More soon.

Your images are quite breathtaking today - what a stunning hydrangea in that first one! It was so fun connecting with like-minded people this week - thanks so much for hosting it!

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous, Kim! :)

Your post touch me, deeply. I realized how disconnected I really was this last week after spending the day we Sarah at Paisley Rain Boots. My job is the culprit, I know this. I realize I do need something...your post has me excited. I did buy a new computer (after having spilled coffee on the keypad). I also purchased Light room with Sarah's encouragement. She recommended your class, which I will take as I know nothing about photo editing.
Thank you for your post today. Well timed.

Gorgeous! Each of these images are simply beautiful. Hydrangeas are so pretty, and I love that sweet white pitcher.

In a world where things seem crazy, I know I can always find beauty, simplicity, and peace here! Thank you for that! I'm blessed by you and your lovely words!

the power of words can not be denied...something good is about to happen...I can feel it too...
ACK, those hydrangeas... so beautiful. And I'm giddy with excitement over your excitement. I cannot wait to hear what is in the works.

Beautiful comments and photos, Kim. You are so right: connections, friendship and family are what get us through the tough times. All the best and thank you for hosting the get-together, Bonny

Your hydrangeas are so delightful, Kim! The light blue is very delicate and subtle!
August 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterNina
hi Kim, oh such dreamy photos! I think I need to head outside to clip acouple or three of mine. Thank you for the tip on the hot tap water ... gotta try it, because the blooms die back so quickly. And your exciting news ... can not wait!!
have a great weekend!

Hi Kim
I love when you post a big flower . So much beauty.

Have a lovely weekend.
August 22, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLisa
Kim - these photos are stunning! I especially love the first one with the touch of blue in the flower and the blue background. It is nice to see you happy and excited - you deserve it!

Hi Kim! Love these white hydrangeas! Love how beautiful they look in that simple white vase....just lovely! Mine are mostly blues and plant couldn't decide if it was blue or was a bit of both! :-) I've been slacking on my blogging lately! Trying to get back into the swing! Take care
