I started a truly boring post all about the new kitchen floor because I'm just so excited about it, but you're probably not, so here's this instead.
When we bought this house we didn't know we were pregnant. We traded (lots of) extra space further toward the edge of the city for walkability and a more urban life. I don't regret it, but it is a unique challenge. Fitting the 3 of us in here and working with the space we have takes intention and good organization. We're not quite there yet.
Lately we've had a tiny moment to breathe (on weekends, mostly) and so we've tackled a few projects, both big and small, that really needed to get done.
+ 1 wooden crates from joann's are my best friend. organizing boxes/baskets/trays forever.
+ 2 one of the only remaining living plants
+ 3 new subway tile for the wall. so easy to clean behind the stove now!
+ 4 olive finally exited the stage where she'd immediately find anything on the fridge and put every tiny magnet on the floor so she gets to have some fun fridge games
+ 5 papa's coffee sugar and the view (through a very dirty window - that obviously hasn't made our list yet) of the backyard
+ 6 a new knife rack to get the huge block off the counter
+7 new kitchen floor (!!!) and a rug near the backdoor to please please please catch some of the stuff the dog brings in from the backyard
+ 8 a bigger fruit basket because the bowl wasn't doing the job
+ 9 sticky gram!
