Kitchen Remodel Inspiration

After slowly remodeling each room in my house, I’ve finally gotten to my kitchen. I’ve waited on this remodel because I knew it was going to be the priciest and like every project, I want to do it right and with quality materials so it lasts.

My parents knew the woman who built my house back in 1950 and she told them stories of how her husband was mad at the people who installed the birch cupboards because some of the doors have seams in them.

To make my frozen yogurt bowls, I throw a cup of Greek yogurt in the freezer and let it sit for an hour (or maybe just a half an hour if I’m really hungry..). After letting it chill, I scoop it into a bowl and mix it up to blend it. I mix in fresh berries, mint leaves, nuts, or granola depending on what I have. YUM!
