My kitchen


         Hello, beautiful people...Here is a look into my kitchen, where the magic happens.
         My style is all over the place. I try and just go for a cozy feel in here. When you walk
         in my home I want you to feel like a big hug is surrounding you. I love personal
         photos in a kitchen. I also love lots of white and pops of color. Pull a chair up to the
         Island and let me whip you up a tasty treat =))) For those of you that have been
         following me for awhile know that we painted our kitchen cabinets last year Winter
         White...and I'm so glad we did.

  10. Love it! Your kitchen looks great. I love white kitchens and have wanted to paint my cabinets forever but am afraid I'll mess them up since they are brand new but then I don't want to pay for someone to come in and do them. Maybe one day I'll get up the courage :)
