NKBA Kitchen of the Year

The National Kitchen and Bath Association is holding their "People's Pick of 2013" for Kitchen of the year.  Sponsored along with HGTV, there are nine kitchens in the running.  Below are three of my favorites, but I am struggling to choose a favorite!  All three are great, but I think I am favoring the second kitchen.  I love the calming color palette with the pop of green, and animal print wallpaper! Head over to HGTV to see the other kitchens and do so soon, there are just 3 days left to cast your vote!

When in Rome

It's been so long since my last post.  In the interim, I took a trip to Rome!!  My younger one and I went to visit my older daughter who is studying abroad for the semester.  I was thrilled to experience the magical city with both daughters.  Turns out it was the perfect week to be there too.  We arrived in time to see the white smoke and saw the new pope address the crowd last Sunday at St. Peter's Square!

I decided to rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel and it could not have been more perfect!  So this is a shout out to Alessandra and her charming apartment.  The apartment is wonderfully located, super clean, very quiet and full with every amenity a five star hotel would have, plus Alessandra is a gracious host! 

So if your travels find you in Rome, I would highly recommend that you rent this apartment. Because when in Rome, do as the Romans do!
