Les rénovations de cuisine / The kitchen reno

I remember the first time I saw the kitchen, it was definitely a low point for the house. Large and spacious, yes, but dated, disfunctional and falling apart (in hindsight I should have left the cabinet doors falling off for the photos but it just hurt too much to immortalize.) It was late last winter…

      The planning stages are definitely the hardest! Coming up with something you’re going to enjoy for years to come is daunting.

Likely it’s no surprise to you that when I think of traveling I think of all the manners with which to document the journey. Well, I’ve been laboring over this thought for weeks… no… months and I’ve come to no firm conclusion. It’s the travel journal! A crux of sorts, no? Okay maybe it’s not……
