New Kitchen!

We have a new kitchen!

New cabinets, new refrigerator, new range, new dishwasher, and new sink/faucet!

I was over the taupe paint color on our main level and our cabinets were yellowing along with the finish wearing off,  so as we explored how to change it all. With the kitchen cabinets, we decided to order darker cabinets called “Cherry Saddle” in a shaker style cabinet.  I know, I know…EVERYONE…well it  seems everyone goes for white cabinets. I have seen kitchens with white cabinets and they look lovely. But with our kitchen, our style, and our island, we decided we wanted to go darker. Which we LOVE. Photos below. These photos do not have the finished top of the cabinets, Wayne is in the process now of installing the crown molding on the tops .  Also under cabinet lighting will be installed this week.  This all was done with a huge savings in labor costs, since we did the whole kitchen ourselves. We gutted it all out and then Wayne did an amazing job installing the cabinets (with just a little help from me) and installing dishwasher, new sink and appliances. Read More



The year 2020. Stunning. Impossible. How has time passed so quickly?! A year yet to be written.

Have you thought how you are going to “write” your year? How it will be lived?

I’m not talking of resolutions. I’m talking of taking planned and definite steps in your journey , in your life.  That’s my journey now. Planning on making definite steps, putting together a mission statement for our year. I’ll share that on another post once I have focused in on what exactly it will be. This is NOT as easy process, also very stretching to carry it out and to bring along on my journey.
