"What a long, strange trip it's been."

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who post on this forum. You held my hand through tough decisions and soothed my anxiety. You kept things in perspective (for Pete's sake, it's only a kitchen...still, TKO to the max!). You helped me change from dreams to reality. Blessings to all of you.

I LOVE my new kitchen for both function and aesthetics.

Thanks for looking! :)

Your birch cabinets are amazing, LOVE the mantlehood. I also really like the pewter grout with your choice of tiles and the way the tiles mesh with the granite on the cooktop wall. Great use of space and materials! Bestest of all are those beautiful kiddie smiles, enjoy your new kitchen!

Great job! Those two beautiful granites compliment each other perfectly. You must love having all those convenient pullouts. Enjoy!
