Today I am on the mend from a weekend full of fun and travel. My brother and I, along with a close family friend, threw a huge surprise party for my mother’s 60th birthday. Close to fifty of her nearest and dearest secretly gathered to celebrate her life with delicious food and a night of drinks and dancing. I was amazed that we were able to keep it a secret, but Mom was truly surprised. It was a great chance to catch up with family and friends that I haven't had a chance to see in a long time. After all the excitement Saturday night Bubba and I had to drive home yesterday. When we left my mother’s house it was a beautiful warm day with temps at 72°. The last two hours or our drive we were battling yet another winter storm with driving snow and 20°. Please let this be the LAST storm of the winter season! I don't think I can take any more snow and freezing temperatures. Anywho..... To recharge my batteries I am spending the day gathering some inspiration for a new kitchen. Right now I'm drawn to simple cabinetry, light neutral colors and natural elements. What's your favorite style of kitchen?
