Welcome to my home.. I wish this was my kitchen! No it's not, but it is amazing. The kitchen sets the mood for the entire house. Sophisticated and lush or trendy and modern. I feel like when you see enter a kitchen and notice how it's kept, decorated, or painted you get a glimpse of who they are.

After 7 ½ years, 3 kids and maaaanny many years of school, I am happy to say, I am still in love. Am I lucky? Yes, but it wasn’t luck that brought our marriage to this day. It is good ol’ fashioned labor of love. LOVE is totally a labor! When Brandon and I were first married he had a personal encyclopedia on the foods he would NOT eat.
