Updating the Kitchen

Our kitchen has been one of the sore spots in our decor since we first bought our house. After 2 years, we had to do something about it. While it would certainly make a big difference to replace the cupboards entirely (and I really pushed for it for a while), we both agreed that this would not be a very green thing to do since our cupboards are perfectly functional.

We finally agreed that a change of hardware would give us the update we needed. I think you'll agree based on the pictures that the handles on the cabinets were definitely keeping our kitchen locked in the 80s. 

Hardware's not enough of a change for you? Consider refacing the cupboards instead of completely replacing them. It will save you thousands of dollars as well.

Had a great day! I volunteered with Feed My Starving Children today. I helped package 684 meals in under 2 hours. That's over 1 year, 9 months worth of food for a child! Each box we filled was made up of nutrient-packed single servings that would guarantee the kids being served a fulfilling meal a day for at least a year. It doesn't sound like much, but these same kids would otherwise just hope to have a meal every 3 days. I will definitely be volunteering with Feed My Starving Children again. I'm so excited to add one more element of social responsibility to my life.
