a little perspective

Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with all the big and little things I still want to do in this house that I forget how much we have really done in the 3 years since we moved in.  We were so fortunate to find this house because it really was very updated considering its age of almost 100 years.  The electrical was already updated; the kitchen was at least from the 90's and the basement was finished.  The finished basement was like a small miracle when we were looking for houses. 

So, in the interest of feeling a sense of accomplishment-I present the western wall of our kitchen (and our oldest child).  Here is how it (and she) looked 3 years ago when we bought the house:

Yes, that is a pink kitchen with pink countertops and pink knobs and pink rose stencil all over the wall. 

Here is the same space just a week ago!  Oh, and that's the same kid, too-just for shock value.  We still have to do the countertops, the backsplash, the ....oh, yeah, I am not supposed to be making lists, I am supposed to be basking in the glow of accomplishment.

I think our kitchens were separated at birth....unfortunately I do not have a beautiful child to complement it!
