Whimsical herb garden

whimsicalherbgarden Hello friends – I hope you are having a great week. We were away on a little family vacation last week; I can’t wait to share some photos and tell you all about it. But for now, I’m happy to be joining some of my friends again this year for  The Outdoor Extravaganza hosted by Shauna from Satori Design for Living.

Satori Design for Living Outdoor Extravaganza 2015

I had the honour of participating last year and shared one of my favourite projects.

Speaking of kitchen, I rarely show photos of our kitchen because, in all honesty, I don’t love it anymore. I feel horrible for saying this as I know how blessed I am and to say that I dislike my very spacious kitchen makes me feel like I’m being ungrateful. But you know those areas in your home that feel as if you’ve outgrown them because they don’t match your taste anymore? Well, that’s our kitchen.

I know that these type of projects take time and money, however, I can’t wait to paint it and remodel it later this year. I get super excited just at the thought.

Funny story – when I was growing up, my grandma had tons and tons of mint and my little brother and I would cut some of the larger leaves and dip them in sugar. We would then eat them and pretend we had made gum. ha.

    Very whimsical and cute!! I know what you mean about feeling ungrateful about not liking your kitchen any more – but just the fact that you recognize how blessed you are means that you aren’t being ungrateful, I think. Styles are constantly growing and evolving – and some of the spaces that I redid during my first year of blogging don’t fit at all with what my style has evolved into now. I guess it is always changing;)
