Now that I’ve spilled the beans about my move… and actually gone through with the move… I thought I’d share a few pictures of my old condo kitchen – which I miss SO much – and the kitchen in my new house, which is lovely in its own right (although the condo will always hold a special place in my heart). As you can see, it was a bit crazy for awhile. Between consummating our sale on Wednesday and moving on the immediately following Saturday, hubby and I were pretty much overwhelmed. We’re feeling better now.
The condo kitchen on either the night before or the morning of our move… I alternated between packing boxes and lovingly petting my stainless steel appliances, which I loved and which I really, really miss:
The kitchen in the new house, looking tragic with my stuff everywhere and a knee-high pile of newsprint:
The main cooking area after I had cleaned it vigorously and organized it compulsively, looking a lot better:
And finally, a view from the eat-in area, of my tidy and uncluttered kitchen. Loving, loving, loving:
Of course, being the kitchen-obsessed baker I am, I had to unpack the kitchen first. The rest of the house still has a long way to go. We’ll get there eventually, but it’s a long road ahead. And I’m not planning to keep the kitchen exactly like this. I have some very specific ideas (yes, I’m a “Monica”, had you not already guessed?) and I’ll definitely be making some changes and adjustments – big and small – to make the kitchen more my style. But in the meantime, I’m back to happily mixing up batter and tossing salads. I’ll always miss my condo kitchen, but I’m sure I’ll grow to love this kitchen just as much – maybe more – as I put my own stamp on the decor and crank out some tasty dishes. Which, of course, I’ll be sure to share with you.
