Monday, July 7

two mondays in a row …

Not exactly a record, but pretty good for me lately.   I hope you all had a terrific 4th of July.   We were washed out here on the east coast, but we still had a great, relaxing weekend.    So many of the kids’ friends were away, we really got in some good family time.   Throw in dinner with my dad and brother in law, some great outlet shopping, and you have yourself a pretty good time. 
Up top, you have some beautiful light when the rain finally stopped on Saturday, and a peek at the new kitchen.   The counters are white quartz and the backsplash is white subway tile.  Compare that to the light at the same time of day on the brown cabinets two posts ago – it was so dark!   There are still some small details to be completed – trim work, some more electrical work, like under the counter lights, things like that – but I am so happy with how it came out.   I will post more when it is done. 
And I’ll leave you with a photo of how my husband prepared for having family over for dinner.   So patriotic, right?
Have a great week!


  1. Beautiful photo! I hope that you have a great week!

  2. Love the little peek at your new kitchen! And that photo of the red, white, and beer is just awesome! Your hubby knows how to accessorize a holiday! ;o)

  3. The white countertop is beautiful in that light. And the flowers. Happy to know your plans are coming to fruition.
