...and I heard it Thursday morning when I woke up at 4:45 am.
Kitchen: An empty can falling on the floor
Me: Hello in there?
Kitchen: Morning, mom?
Me: You are still up?
Kitchen: Yup, going to bed now.
Something is wrong when the 13 year old is going to bed
at 5 am on a school night!
A year and a half ago, I wrote about this same
school project... but it involved my son.
Check it out here
Middle school English requires the
to create an autography scrapbook of their lives...
And here's a peek at Avery's creation-
(29 pages in all!)
Each photo page required an essay...
Here's my favorite...
Avery's goal to become an Interior Designer
How cute is she posing in her room when she was tiny...
Even with all the crazy hours and incredible workload,
my 13 year old can see the joy in her mom
and she works a career that is so fulfilling.
I'm so lucky to do what I do!!!
Do what you love... and the rest will fall into place-
Even though it may be a process getting there:)
Until next time,

Well, it has almost been three months and we are starting to see the finish line!
My client, New York, New York, has taken a small "facelift" of a project and
turned it into a complete "overhaul"!!!
This is what I've been looking at over there for the past two months...
Which started out like this...
And today looks like this!
Okay, I have to admit there is a long way to go... but this is progress!!!!
Read about the full project here...
As a recap, we settled on semi custom cabinetry by Kraftmaid
and designed this beautiful kitchen and
this awesome wine bar... yum.
If you are having trouble envisioning this...
here's some help-
A full suite of Viking appliances patiently awaits in the warehouse-
A combo of Caesarstone and Blue Azul granite go in soon!
And... multiple options for lighting
(which has been a power struggle...wink wink)
Here's some favorites:
Island pendant lighting... still pending-
While we are at it... there's more.
Powder Bath Before:
Emser Contempo Tile
Ridiculously difficult tile to source...
thank you Homero-
Kohler floating vanity...
Cool lighting from Restoration Hardware and
dark chocolate walls in Sherwin Williams
Well Bred Brown ...
New York, New York, has been an excellent general contractor
and lots of fun to work with... never a dull moment:)
There's so much more to show you... almost every room
in the house, so stay tuned for more.
Fingers crossed this kitchen is finished soon!!!!
Until next time,
