We've gutted rooms, ripped up carpeting, refinished hardwood floors, put up drywall, painted and painted some more, installed new cabinets, bought appliances, laid tile, put up trim, and cleaned until our fingers were raw.
But now we have this beautiful kitchen. It makes me so happy, I can't even tell you. Here is a progress picture I put together:

There it is in all its glory. We are so proud of our fresh, modern, clean, white, blue and gray kitchen. It's perfect for us.
I baked for the very first time in our new home on Monday night. So what did I decide to bake for the celebratory occasion? My low-fat chocolate chip banana muffins that I'm totally obsessed with. It was also the first real snowfall of the year. So while the snow was falling slowly outside, I was in our home baking something I love... for people I love. It's what I've always wanted.
