Open Shelves & Honest Thoughts
I love open shelves! I begged Doug to knock down all our shelving and just have open shelves but he gently reminded me that practicality is also important in a kitchen. I sometimes forget our kitchen is roughly the size of a bathroom just with a slightly bigger sink. In our next home though if our kitchen is bigger I'm going for it! Plus it inspires diligent home organization. The ones above are my absolute favourites!! I want to spend the day baking in all of these kitchen. Today I'm attempting my first loaf of french bread in mine! I've never made french bread before but my kitchen is begging for the opportunity!
I also want to make a quick comment about my blog... Yesterday I received a rather unpleasant comment that has since been removed and while I will not respond to it specifically I do want to make it clear I write this blog for me. This is a blog about infertility and adoption as told through someone both adopted and adopting. I haven't promised anyone a rose garden and if I want to vent about all the crap our agency has gone through, or our crib being recalled, or even that scene in Julie and Julia where Meryl Streep breaks down after learning her sister is pregnant (makes me cry everytime!) I will. This is how I cope and if it upsets you please don't read it. Also keep in mind the very sweet man I married who is in this with me. Mr. La Belle Vie is also struggling through the setbacks and he doesn't need to read comments that belittle his feelings any more than I do. This is our journey, and I implore anyone who feels either uncomfortable reading it, or that they can cope better than us to absolutely start their own blog! This one is mine though and it will continue to be a self indulgent, emotional little whirl wind that is all me... The power of having your own blog is quite a rush let me tell you!
Have a great day! Jxx
