This week, the highly-anticipated mini kitchen renovation began this week. I said “adieu” to the 1980’s faux butcher block countertop and “welcome” to a simple charcoal gray countertop. The “vintage” tiles from 1969 are gone and framing done in preparation for electrical work this week. I’m so excited!
Baking is love made edible. -Unknown
Even though we’re in the midst of renovations, meals still need to be prepared, and I’m scheduled to provide snacks for a ladies’ event on Wednesday, so I’m sneaking in some baking whenever I can!
This afternoon I baked cranberry streusel muffins and orange jack-o-lantern sugar cookies. Of course, I have to enjoy a cup of tea while I’m waiting.

If I were to get married again (which I have no plans to ever do again), would I stick with white, or would I dare to be different? Judging on how much I’ve changed since I started my mid-life crisis, I think the answer is “yes”! Maybe…red?
Forget the prince…keep the shoes!
