What is your favorite room in the house? I am a homebody and love just snuggling in with the family and watching a movie or reading in the living room. When the weather gets warmer and the sun shines, the three season porch off the back of our house gets a lot of attention and admittedly is one of my most favorite places in the world.
But, when I truly think about it. The kitchen is my trusty old friend. So today K is for Kitchen an ode to the best room in the house.
Our kitchen isn’t anything special to the untrained eye. There is old wallpaper with a pattern I can’t even remember. Is it ducks? Stripes? Flowers? Not too sure.
The hood over the stove is a pea soup green and our kitchen sink matches, and honestly that was one thing I said HAD to go when we first moved in.
But after two or three years. The ugly thing has grown on me. I love the green sink. I’m gonna miss that green sink when we move.
None of our appliances match. Our stainless steel fridge, white dishwasher and black stove all work together just as well as if they were all shiny and new.
But, it’s not about looks.
I love that kitchen because it’s where I keep the wine.
Ha, just kidding.
I love that kitchen because it’s the place where I make special meals for my family. Where I try new recipes for the first time.
It’s a place where my son rummages through the cupboards and plays drums on pots and pans the way I used to when I was growing up.
It’s the room where we make margaritas on a girls’ night and pour each other coffee the morning after.
It’s small, and isn’t much to look at. But it is perfect for me!
