A Glimpse of Our Green Kitchen

We hosted a Christmas party at our house earlier this week and one of the ladies said I really needed to share photos of my kitchen. 

I told her that I sometimes feel embarrassed to share it because 1. It’s still a work in progress 2. That progress happens slowly nowadays (literally, if you’ve ever lived through a DIY project of any kind … you kind of get to a spot where you’re like, “well it’s livable! We can take a break!” …. We sometimes are like that with the kitchen (mainly because we have so many other projects and real life going on!)

After the lightning strike/house fire … and all that ensued with the rebuild, we have been through a lot. And sometimes letting others into that “space” (that we have worked so hard to protect and make safe again) is not always something I want to do.

But… for my friend who gave me the courage to share… here is our kitchen (a corner of it at least, lol).

It’s no where near complete. I could list all of the things just in this small corner that need to be completed … but for the moment … I’m going to just be proud of what my husband and I have built! 

If you swipe through the photos you’ll see…
1. Me 🙂 
2. My hubby and I taking out the old kitchen cabinets getting it ready for demo
3. Actual demo
4. More demo 🏠 🔥 
5. What this exact corner looked like when our house was turned back over to us…
6. My husband building the kitchen cabinets 
7. A photo that resembles resilience, determination, guts, tears, anger, hard work and love. 

Sometimes we need those simple reminders of the progress that had been made … and be thankful for it!
