I don’t know why I have been daydreaming about
kitchen design (and Sarah Richardson’s aesthetic)
so much lately…we creatives often feel the
itch to change it up or move on to new projects,
and since we have lived in our home for 7 years,
maybe that explains the itch.
I love savoring Sarah Richardson’s projects
one at a time because she is such an excellent
teacher of design, and I don’t want to miss the details.
This kitchen is located in a newly constructed
home in the suburbs.
This last image is a Sarah Richardson farmhouse kitchen,
and if farmhouse chic gets your heart pumpin’,
you can find more images of it here.

In other news, I am fighting a battle involving
anxiety/depression/spiritual growth which may or
may not be connected to a friggin frigid winter
and the most evil menopausal chapter yet.
A newish addition to my daily vocabulary.
I remember exactly when the seed was planted and began to take root a couple of years ago when over Belgian waffles,
a trustworthy friend shared that if…given my level of fear and the circumstances…I truly wished to be victorious,
I would have to be more intentional, toughen up,
and FIGHT for it.
Bear in mind such cognitive restructuring and
inner spiritual gear shift kicked in
before the BRCA2 diagnosis and
ensuing physically challenging madness.
She was so right.
Fighting fear, living courage, and prayer are my life just now.
Traveling in the direction of my fears is terrifying territory.
Militant metaphors and convictions?
Feel unnatural, absent from my wiring. Yet.
I am acquainted with days of bloody wounds and anguish.
Scratching your head wondering how on earth
a waify sunbeam found herself clad in chainmail
on a battlefield whilst authoring a peace and harmony blog?
I feel you.
But you have battles too. We all do.
I intend to fight honorably.
Peace to you right where you are.
