a new house

May 27, 2011

I delayed guest blogging today, despite some really good entries, because we were closing on our new home. Walking through our new home this morning, I realized that although I will always love our first home, a small vibrant townhouse where parties shook and newborns cried, this new house will be our family home. I love our old home’s location, character, and even the small galley kitchen. It was the perfect place for us to start a life, and well, leave the life for extensive travel around the world.

Today, as a couple settled in the landscape of DC, we walked through our new space. Two months after the purchase date, enough time to worry if the purchase was a good idea, we reminded ourselves that it felt like home before it was our home. Filled with older nooks while balancing the expanded crannies, this home has character and space, something we didn’t think we could afford in the DC area.

So, here is our new kitchen. A farm sink, glass cabinets, and granite countertops, it looks beautiful. I can’t wait to prep food, find a mini-island from a flea market, and chat with friends without causing a fire hazard. It needs newer appliances, and a few tweaks. but we love it. Now, my question for you is, if the off-white paint has olive undertones, do my blue le crueset pieces match?

Yes, a totally insignificant, unpolitical, non-foodie concern, but man, the OCD Art History major in me really gets flummoxed by color combinations.

Since our new kitchen has more light, I am excited for new recipes and blog entries. Just forgive us for not being able to post often in the next couple of weeks. I will be sure to post things, but be understanding with the easiness of the recipes. Between the end of the year teaching ceremonies, moving, and a dynamic one year old, it might be easier for us to take the path of least cooking resistance.

    your kitchen is a beauty! so many have ridiculous kitchens these days and do not use them. finally someone deserving of a charming kitchen finds herself owning one.
