For the last few weeks we’ve been under construction–painting cabinets, getting new countertops and some appliances. We’re still waiting on our oven and a hood–but it’s coming together and I’m thrilled with how fresh and bright it looks. We’ve been wanting to freshen the cabinets since we moved into this house 7 years ago–and it’s finally happening. Hooray!
You can see a peek of our old cabinets in this post.

How about some hellos for a brand new Monday?

hello kitchen redo lisa leonard-03 Hello bright and sunny. I can’t get over how much light is reflected off the cabinets now that they’re lighter. I think light is good for the soul.

hello kitchen redo lisa leonard-04 Hello massive sink. I’m actually enjoying doing dishes these days. I love Mrs. Meyer’s–especially the lavender scent. So good.

hello kitchen redo lisa leonard-05 Hello fruit–real and porcelain. We’re trying to snack on fruit, nuts and string cheese when possible.

hello kitchen redo lisa leonard-06 Hello unkillable plant. I love snake plant–they hardly need any water and don’t need a lot of light either.

Hello fun chairs we found at a local wholesale furniture place we love. They are so comfortable.

Hello making pancakes on our new stove. So much easier than the hot plate we’ve been using the last month or so.

Hello journaling, reading and taking time to nurture my soul.

Hello longer days. The sun is staying up longer and we’ve been getting some evening walks in. I love it!

Hello splitting the boys into two rooms. They’ve shared all their lives. I’m busy organizing and planning. I think it’s going to be great for them–and maybe a little bit of a┬átransition too. pics of the boys room before the split here.

Hello slowing down. I’m trying to rush less and breathe deeper. It feels important.

Hello to you! It’s a brand new week with beauty to be found. What are you saying hello to this week?
