And the chapter is finally closed...

Well. I did it. With no tears as well. I turned in the house keys from Jeremy and I's first home together. I am very proud of myself. The old Kate would have not only ran but probably knocked over women and children to get back together with him by now. We need this. This is a good thing. It is going to be a good year. I will see to that. It is my new mantra.

An amazing quote I got from my dear friend Kristen's blog... Here's to getting to the middle!

Kitchen Envy

For those of you who as Carrie Bradshaw would say "use your oven for storage" you can stop reading now. :)

I love cooking, but even more so, I love baking. For my birthday this year my whole family chipped in and helped me buy the ULTIMATE bakers delight- a KitchenAid stand mixer... in red ;) Now, I LOVE my kitchen, but in just a few short days I will have to give up the luxury of having all the counter space and storage I can possibly use to a MUCH smaller version. I can't complain, the new place has all new appliances, great modern cabinets, and a great overall style- but it's SMALL. This got me thinking about my dream kitchen. So all you Betty Crocker wannabe's- feast your eyes on these little diddies...

I love this modern style, don't know if I could actually LIVE with this though...

And then there is the allure of the traditional country kitchen that is so warm and lovely...

I am in LOVE with open storage in a kitchen...

What's your dream kitchen?

mark your calendars!!

This looks to be quite possibly the movie of the year for me... granted I just saw Inception, and that was PHENOMENAL, but how can you resist Julia?

A new beginning....

So I haven't blogged in a while because I feel... lost. I lost the love of my life. I am in the process of losing my wonderful house I shared with him. And I am losing my sense of purpose in this world. It has been a whirlwind in these past few months. My birthday came and went... a few camping trips with the Broussard's came and went, without me... 4th of July came and went. And now I'm here. Trying to deal with it all without too many people to lean on. I feel it is necessary to release these thoughts feelings so I can move on.

I lost my will to keep trying in our relationship. He made it so hard for me to love him, and it became too much. After that being said and I started to walk away, he let me.

For now I look to the future as a hopeful one. As my friend Jesse tells me, 25 is going to be a good year... Stay tuned, friends.
