Humble

Last week, I ranted on about people with these enormous and very elaborate kitchens. People who use them for a display of their wealth and nothing more. I don't think it really bothers Honey that these beautiful facilities aren't used, he just doesn't get it....Neither do I.

Our home is far from any of the ones he works in. It's average in size and tucked in a wooded area on a back road. However, it's ours, it's comfortable and it's welcoming.....And truly, ANYONE is welcome in our home. We (well, Honey) as remodeled more than half the house already and has done ALL of the work himself.....Yes, including the kitchen. It's a modest little room but I love it and spend most of my time there. There has been a ridiculous amount of food cooked in it, including canning and freezing. Many conversations at the kitchen table, ones that would make you laugh and cry. The kids homework and projects are done there, clothes are folded and many happy meals take place in this little room.

Some of you have asked to see my kitchen. So here is what my Honey did for our family..... (click on the imagines to see them larger)

You have a fantastic kitchen! My hubby has done the same thing as yours and has remodeled quite a bit of our home including the kitchen, and it too is my favorite spot in the house.

I love your cabinets! Nice tile too (my hubby is a tile-man). Your husband did a great job! I consider myself blessed to have a hubby who is very good at remodeling projects--it saves so much $$$!

Wow, what a beautiful kitchen. My hubby is like yours, and is a very handy-man, who can do pretty much anything he sets his mind to. He loves to build. That being said, our house is in dire need of a repaint, and some repairs, but I am still waiting !!!! Take care, Meow

PLEASE, people. That kitchen is NOTHING compared to what she DOES in it. Man oh MAN, this woman can cook!! And the most fun in my life is always had at her kitchen table. It may be a pretty kitchen, but she is the one that makes that home a beautiful place to be.

Absolutely. Without. A. Doubt.
