Thank you for the kitchen love!

And no, we are not still thinking of doing a professional remodel. We didn't know how awesome it was going to come out; we just made it up as we went along!

Stylized bees! You know how I love bee things. This is the stamp on the bottom:

Since I started gardening seven years ago, I have been wanting to keep a garden journal.

There it is:


The promise of spring.
