Well, here it is: my favorite part of my home and the center of activity for our family. This is where I will be preparing warm, nutritious meals for my loved ones and entertaining countless guests.
I chose my kitchen cabinets about a month ago, and they were delivered and installed just more than a week ago. If you look closely, you will see unfinished areas, including the ever-famous concrete walls all around (like we still have in every room!). But, I am just thrilled to be able to be a normal housewife once again! No more Ramen noodles, sandwiches, cafes, etc... Time for some good, old-fashioned cooking! Eventually I will have bar stools here... ideal for extra seating when we have guests and also a perfect place for my little homeschoolers to sit and get help while I wash dishes!
We do not even have gas in our village, but David bought us a small gas tank and will keep it filled just for this purpose. We chose this gas stove with the hopes that one day gas will eventually make it out to our village!My mother-in-law sent me money as a housewarming gift, and this sink and faucet were what I bought with that money. Since she and I have made countless memories talking at the kitchen sink while washing dishes, I thought it would only be appropriate to buy this with the money she gave me. Also, since I am a sentimental-type person, I bought this double sink for myself (the large side) and my little girl (the small side). Brianna is only 2-years old, but I know that we will have lots of talks together at this kitchen sink, as well.
Thanks, Mom, for encouraging another generation of sink-washing memories for me with my own daughter!
