My New Kitchen

I have a new kitchen! It's not as big as my old one, and definitely not as colorful -- the old one was blue, and I had painted confetti (streaming swirls and polka dots) on one wall. There is an electric stove rather than a gas one. The countertops and storage space are both significantly limited, though I pride myself on being fairly adaptable so I'm doing my best to accommodate. All of my spices fit on the freezer door (took both shelves, but they fit!), so it's working out okay.

No, I didn't remodel anything just to set these limits -- that would have been a contrary thing to do, now, wouldn't it??? And who has the money for that kind of work anyway?

So, I'm sure you're asking why I have a new kitchen, and why I would downsize this way since I do so love to cook and bake. Well, here's where the big announcement I've been promising for a week (which had to be delayed by my untimely computer problems) comes in:

My new kitchen comes with something far more valuable than work space, more important than a gas stove, more precious than storage capacity. My new kitchen comes with a new house ... and with my sweetie.

I moved in with Tom last week ... :)

Congrats sweetie! With a good lookin' guy like that, a small kitchen might be a better fit for the both of you! :)

I'll take your kitchen over my ratty (not with real rats! lol) kitchen ANY DAY!!!

Congratulations to you!!! I wish you TONS of happiness with Tom!

Also....I never knew that spices could go in the freezer...even ones that come from the store in those little bottles?

Congrats! My last place had a 2X4 as a "counter" so I think you'll be just fine ;)
