Or do you dream of designing the perfect kitchen . . . someday?
I used to dream of the kitchen I'd have if I could. Funny thing is, I could be happy in a lot of kitchens. In fact, MOST of the kitchens that are being featured at Sarah's "Kitchen Favourites Linky Party" (she's British--I didn't spell it wrong) could easily fit the bill for me.
Six years ago, we remodeled our house and practically doubled the size of my kitchen. I got to choose everything in it, and I still love it today.
Here's my kitchen just after the remodel was completed.
See how shiny my fridge was back then?
It's hard for me to choose just one thing in my kitchen that I love. Maybe it's the soapstone countertops (a little hard to see in these photos).
Or the beautiful tile backsplash I had installed last summer.
(Ah, there are those countertops!)
Or maybe it's the valence that I made out of antique linen tea towels that I bought in Paris a few years ago.
All those things are nice, but what I really like . . .
. . . what really makes me the happiest in my kitchen . . .
. . . is when it's filled with the people I love.
I'm a little late to Sarah's party at Modern Country Style, but that's O.K. You can find more beautiful kitchens over there.
