Over a year ago, I meet with a nutritionist to discuss some issues in health I was having. One of the changes she suggested was to start drinking Kombucha tea daily. For those who do drink it but don’t make your own understand how expensive this can become, so I started making my own. The […]

    Do you use the new SCOBYs to create your next batch or do you throw them out and start from scratch?ReplyCancel

      Thanks bria. I do use the SCOBY’s to make the next batch, just throw them in with the originals. When I have a bunch I store the extras in another jar with some starter tea to give away.ReplyCancel

    I’m an American photographer in Ireland, and I’m transitioning to using mainly film at weddings instead of digital. I was a little bit nervous about using all film for one of my own weddings in Ireland, and wanted to tag along with a film shooter to see how they approached the wedding day. Since I’d be visiting family in Colorado this past August, I contacted some film photographers there to see if I could second shoot a wedding with them. Sara Hassdedt, a film photographer in Denver, was just a star. So friendly in emails, and answered every silly question I asked. We had a Skype interview, and after that she booked me in to 2nd shoot a wedding with her in Breckenridge while I was on vacation! She didn’t have to do this, especially as she knew I might be moving to Colorado and would open a business too. She is just a genuinely kind and nice person, and someone who I consider a friend now. I’m very thankful to her for her kindness and trust.ReplyCancel

    Last month I had surgery to remove a lump in my breast (i found out it wasn’t cancerous, Thank god!) but throughout the whole process of me finding out, leading up to getting surgery and after the fact, one of my teachers was there for me the whole way. The night I told her was the most emotional night of my life, and I felt extremely weak and vulnerable. She assured me everything was going to be okay and she kept me grounded and positive about the whole situation. Throughout this whole year I have had multiple health issues and they keep occuring. I know now that if I ever need anything, she will be the person that I will always have to lift me up when I am bothered. She has become someone I look up to, a role model to me. and I thank her for that!ReplyCancel

    A few years ago, I had just moved to a new town and started a new job when a serious health crisis hit. Being sick and scared of what could happen is never easy, but it felt harder by being in a new place with very little community around for support. The few friends I had made from book club proved incredibly generous and wholehearted people. They cooked us meals, sent cards, dropped off books, and genuinely helped me to feel cared for and loved during the months that passed during this time. I’m forever grateful to them.ReplyCancel

    Comparing with others, my story might be much trivial than anyone else’s. In the past year, I fell in and out of love with a same person. Everything was so difficult to me because it was the first time I learnt to cherish a “relationship”. I flew 13 hours to Europe to meet him but I could only see him for two days. I’ve done many things wrong in that period, but he actually has made me a better person. I’ve grown a lot because of him.ReplyCancel

    My mother was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma and melanoma over the course of the past year. It hasn’t been an easy time for either one of us. As much as I’ve been there for her, she’s also been there for me – we’ve supported each other through this year. She sends me a card every week, and I bring her fresh things from the farmer’s market and pick up her prescriptions.
    We help each other out.ReplyCancel

    What a great idea! I haven’t actually shot with this film so I’d love to give it a try.

    I have been helped in so many ways over the last year, but the biggest was when 100+ people came together and donated to my Morocco project and helped me actualize a dream. HUGE! I can’t thank them enough. 🙂ReplyCancel

    This year has been an incredible one filled with many ups and downs. I would not have made it through without my wonderful husband. He gave me a new life, one where I feel hopeful about the future and good about myself.ReplyCancel

    I’ve seen miraculous things this year – I’m a mom to a son who has autism –
    I was fortunate to find 5 other autism moms in my town – once we connected, life has never been the same – power in love, acceptance and compassion is truly miraculous.
    I’ve been on the giving and receiving end.
    Love truly does move mountains.ReplyCancel

A project I’ve worked on over the summer. Now as I wait to go to kickboxing this morning, I wanted to share some of the images from the photo session of truly inspiring women. To read their full bio go to the Midwest Tae Kwon Do aerobic kickboxing website. Two of the ladies are in […]

    These are all beautiful and impressive, I especially like the one of Sandy doing the one-handed push-up. The additional one on their website are also very good.ReplyCancel

    Oh (wo)man! These photos are fabulous Kim. I particularly love the ones of Bonnie and Ashley. This post also made me think about my own fitness journey. Since April I have managed to lose a shade under 14 pounds and (in most shops) 2 dress sizes. I feel stronger and healthier than I have done in years. My next goal is to run a 5k charity race and with a bit of help from stories like this, I reckon I just might do it 🙂 *****ReplyCancel
