Oh just standing here in my little pink kitchen reading about my little pink kitchen in Food Network Magazine!!
You know what is really cool about this? As pretty as it looks, my little kitchen in this photo is imperfect & full of real life. A vintage drawer pull is crooked - because my babies stand there and spin it while they wait for me to wash their blueberries or scoop their yogurt. A pink paint stain on the concrete countertop, that I eventually removed with sand paper, is still visible here. A freshly washed cutting board is drying in the sink, and that window ledge needed to be repaired since the day we moved in. I didn’t paint my kitchen pink for Instagram, I painted it because I wanted to live somewhere inspiring. I cut those flowers because I wanted to be surrounded by their scent.
When Food Network asked if they could use the high-resolution version of this image, I didn’t have anything to give them but this quick iPhone snap. So as fun (and surprising!) as it is to see my kitchen in this magazine, you should know this was never my goal. I want to LIVE beautifully, slowly, and simply and along the way I am oh so happy to share to pictures of this beautiful life with you!!
