Today I’m sharing a glimpse into my personal life over at my friend Kris’s blog, Junk Chic Cottage.  I’ve even shared a photo of myself on her site, which you’ll notice is nowhere to be found on my site!  I’m much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it…  :)

The post is about me, my family, and a bit about my life before blogging, so I hope you’ll join me for today’s Saturday Spotlight and leave a note for Kris letting her know that you stopped by.  And a big “thank you” to Kris for allowing me this fun opportunity!

  1. I just read about you and your blog at Junk Chic Cottage and enjoyed meeting another California blogger.

    I will be following you and look forward to reading more and looking at your gorgeous photos. My husband asks the same questions as your husband when he sees me “styling” for a blog post.

    I have to ask where you were married. It looks like the vineyards of Firestone Winery.

      Hi Carol! Thank you so much for visiting me from Junk Chic Cottage! We were married at Healdsburg Country Gardens. It’s a rental home that overlooks the vineyards. :)

  2. Hi Kim,
    It was such a pleasure reading about you over at Kris’s blog. You truly are beautiful, as is your family. I can see with just a few glimpses that your home is too. I’m a new follower and I look forward to getting to know you!

    Stop by and say hi when you can ~

  3. It is so nice meeting you Kim. I will be following you and I love learning all about your blog and meeting you and your family. I also live in CA, but in Southern CA. My son lives in Los Gatos, so I get up there quite often. You home is very lovely.

      Hi Jane! Thank you so much! I’ll hop over to visit you now… :)

  6. Hi Kim: I just saw your lovely profile over at Kris’s. I have been following you for awhile but don’t often leave a comment. But I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and all the love and work you put into it. Your photography is beautiful and I certainly enjoy seeing your beautiful home evolving. You need to add your picture to your blog. You are really beautiful and so is your family and you should show them off! It was so nice learning more about you. I was born and lived in Santa Cruz for most of my life, and my kids still live there, so we have a little something in common..Hope you are having a lovely weekend..Judy

      Judy – Thank you! Thank you! I truly appreciate your visiting my blog and your kind comments. Now that I finally have a photo of myself (I had to take that one just for the post!), I’ll add it to my site. Santa Cruz is a beautiful place and we try to visit a couple times a year; the kids love it! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. :) Kim
