Wish I were here.

I really miss this kitchen. There was lots of counter and cabinet space. I actually didn't realize exactly how much space I had, until the movers brought ALL of the boxes here to this apartment. As they stacked them one upon the other and lined them up in my new kitchen, it quickly became apparent that things would not fit. Besides the very obvious fact that my old kitchen had a dishwasher and garbage disposal, I just miss it being all mine. I don't feel that way about this kitchen here. It still feels foreign.


When I think back to my old house, I think of the living room and how many hours my family and I spent there. This is the home that I brought both of my new babies back to. This is the place where they both learned to crawl and then to walk. I can remember all the baby gates and safety measures I had put into place to protect my kids. I can also remember how overly protective I was. Seeing these pictures may just look like a kitchen and a living room to you. But to me, they are filled with joyful memories. Laughter and love.

Wow amazing kitchen! You are sad b/c it wasn't just a house, it was a HOME!!

UKZoe said...

aww, I'm sorry you don't feel "home" in your new house yet, hopefully that will come. A friend of mine moved house last Friday and is struggling to feel "home" in the new house too.

I would feel the same if we were to move out of this house. This is our "home".. the one we've created so many memories in. Enough time, enough memories and this new house will feel like "home" to you too. :)

Kitchens in Latin America are not designed to be the center of the house, I love my kitchen here becasue it is open to the family room and I can talk and watch tv w/ the kids while cooking & cleaning. I guess the point in Latin America is that you might have someone else in the kitchen doing that stuff! haha

So jealous of that kitchen!

You left out that fabulous walk in butler pantry with so much space--I was jealous of that pantry! Guess what? You still own it!
Your Chilean apt. is very large in other spaces--and all those balconies that you have! Lots of places for kitty to hide in.
We miss you!
Love ya;

I love the island and all the space! I would soooo miss that too. Beautiful home!

I can see why you miss those rooms. Both due to the memories and the look. They are beautiful rooms.
