My New Kitchen

On September the 10th,  hubby and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. While we both would like to travel it is not a good time right now. We have darling furry girl who is 9 now and my Mom who is in her 80's but in great health. Mom does not mind looking after Shadow for a night or two but not any longer than that and we don't want to put Shadow in a boarding kennel.
I am in need of hip replacement surgery so that too kind of puts a damper on going anywhere we would have to walk.

So we have decided that instead of a trip for now we are going update our kitchen. We replaced our kitchen floor, installed a new range hood. a new granite counter top, with a new sink, tap and a glass and ceramic tile back splash. The picture I have of the old kitchen  are not great but here they are. The funny thing is that the counter we chose is called Carnivale so I said to my husband, I guess this is our Anniversary Cruise.

Wow - your new kitchen is very smart! It will last much longer than a cruise, too.

Congrats! That’s very practical of you to prioritize a kitchen remodel than an out-of-town trip for a gift. Anyway, it would be great if you add anything made of coral or jade in your kitchen to symbolize the 35th year of your matrimony. I think coral plates are a good display, since it is difficult to find jade kitchen accessories. ;)
