A Portrait Of My Kitchen

I had been thinking about posting a sentimental and thoughtful post about how much time I spend in my kitchen and how much my kitchen says about me. But I think just preserving it in a photo will suffice for now.

Someday my kids will look back fondly to this picture and remember sitting at the island counter on their stools (this island coun
ter that we specifically planned for our someday-children when we built this house and now 8 years later it serves its purpose as the breakfast and lunch spot for three sweet little boys.)

Today I am reminded of the green tomatoes that I still need to fry up (Mmmm) and to the left of the tomatoes is the rocket fishbowl with our pet fish Luna. She is audience to all the happenings in the hub of our home.


Lori is having a sweet photo tag asking us to share our family table. Breakfast & lunch may be lively and entertaining and eat-at-your-own-risk at the counter, but dinner is reserved for our table whenever possible. It can still be quite lively and entertaining here, too. There is nothing like a conversation with your kids at dinner. Some of the best things our kids have said have been spoken here.

  5. I love your kitchen.. I would kill for a counter top or an island you can eat around. It would make like so easy.. ~sigh~ my kitchen is sto tiny though. I don't even have room in there for a table. and I have very little counter space.

  6. That's how it is in our home too.. We eat dinner together every day, and many times dim the lights and light up candles, and I think it is so important to all of us - just sit and talk, and like you said, the best things have been spoken around the dining table.

  9. There is so much I loved about this post. I love the nostalgia that time in the kitchen creates. I love that you and Jeff dreamed of a family around that island. I'm sure they will have so many happy memories that are staged in that room. Thanks for sharing. Oh, also, the fried green tomatoes made me smile. I always think of you whenever I see/here anything about fried green tomatoes :)

  10. I love the chairs at the end of your counter! That's one thing I wish I had in my kitchen - a bar area.

  16. I love that your fish is right there watching mealtime. Of course, if the fish was right there in the middle of things I might remember to feed it!!

    Come visit my family table.
