My Friday find.......

I've met so many amazing people this past 9 months.....People I never would have met otherwise.... 

I've talked about my friend Curtis here, before. We met at The Port....Truly inspired....a forever friend.... I'm pretty sure we never would have met...if it weren't for John and his Dad undergoing treatment at the same time.

The first time we met... I asked Curtis if I could take his photo....(not something I typically do...I'm more of a still life girl as you know).... But, I'm so glad I asked.....I had no idea he was a musician....or that he was so photogenic.... I just really wanted to take his picture. That shoot was the start of a true friendship. 

Curtis brought his guitar along ... As Bryce & I clicked away, he played for us. We were both blown away.

I've been listening to Curtis... ever since. In fact, I played him in the car.... pretty much every trip back and forth to the hospital.... It made the whole thing a little less hard... Ya know?

It's also pretty cool to really 'know' the artist behind the voice.... 

Big News

Curtis has a new album out.... Tiny Army....   It's brilliant... So good....Well done, my friend. You are truly AMAZING.


You can find his CD's here.... or on iTunes...just search CC Trubiak.....

Pop over and have a listen.

Here's to the blessings that keep us believing.......even in the darkest of hours... So grateful.

Until next time.....Love.... and gratitude....always...forever....

Happy Valentines Day dear friends.... Have a beautiful weekend.


p.s. this post is dedicated to the entire Trubiak family.... We love you all......So grateful our paths crossed. xo

Link away.... lovelies....

Dear Kim,
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful find!!! The story of your friendship with Curtis reminds me on a similar story, I have experienced, in not so easy days in the past of my life...
I have searched on YouTube, because the 'listening link' didn't work...He has such a beautiful and sensitive voice!!! Really good!
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy a heartfelt Happy Valentines Day!
Wishing you all the best!

"Here's to the blessings that keep us believing"...made my heart warm. I will be quoting you! Seriously, that touched me. Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family.

What a lovely friendship story, Kim! A perfect story to share on Valentine's Day. And a happy one to you, my friend.

Further proof there are no such things as "coincidences" in life or "chance meetings".
When we "happen to" meet people like Kim or Curtis, it is because they have a message for us.

What a great story, Kim! Curtis is exceptionally photogenic and I cannot wait to hear his voice now that he's on iTunes. What wonderful news!

Happy Valentine's Day, sweet you. Hope its filled with much love and you're blessed with joy beyond your wildest dreams.

Kim, I always feel like I've been on a visit to your home when I read your blog. You share your heart in such an open way. Wish I could share a cup of tea with you and listen together to the music of Curtis. Your Friday Finds always provide such inspiration. I have a wish list inspired by the finds you highlight. Happy Valentine's Day.

I did not get a chance to comment when I linked up yesterday morning I am so glad I came back because now I remember that I wanted to listen to this music!

Friendships are the spice of life! Thank you Kim for all your tutorials, textures and presents - I have for the first time used one of your brushes, and made a watermark-stamp using your instructional videos ... So happy for everything you share and teach!

glad you're back home - hope all is going well...

Isn't it moments like this one you shared when you are just left dumbfounded at the amazing thing we live called life? And how blessing do pour forth, even when life really stinks. I'm so thrilled you met your friend, and that you are home with your hubby :-) Hooorah!
