Around Our Home: The Kitchen

For me, a place isn't home until I have the kitchen sorted. Earlier this week, the furniture we chose for the breakfast area arrived (I shared the table and chair options we were considering a couple of weeks ago). With the furniture here, I had no excuse for not putting the last odds and ends away.

I dislike moving. A friend remarked that the best part about moving was the opportunity to organize everything. (I'm paraphrasing what he said badly.) Once I started putting dishes and sundries away, I understood what he meant. Looking at neatly organized stacks of dishes, drawers of utensils, shelved formula, and so on after the chaos of moving boxes was incredibly calming.
Space to be Organized
Now I may have gone a little overboard putting everything in its place; this is the largest kitchen -- besides my mom's kitchen -- that I've had in a place where I've lived.

(Can you see my retail experience rearing its head? All labels turned out and all product pulled to front edge.) To see more of Our Kitchen, check out our "kitchen" photostream on Flickr.
One room down! Only four more rooms to go! Next up, The Nursery - stay tuned.
How do you move into a new place?
Finishing one room? Or doing a little in all?
Bon Appetit!
