Well, it’s been about 3 months since Chip and I got married and we are finally just getting a bit settled in our new home! Life has been absolutely fabulous, but oh so hectic. More than anything, we’re loving just finally being a team, married and starting our life together.
This past weekend was the first weekend since our wedding that we both have been at home for a whole weekend with no guests staying at our house. Whew… it was awesome! While Chip was studying (he is taking the 1st step of the boards next week), I decided I would begin to get back into my love of crafting with this little bunch of fun above our kitchen sink:
Total cost: $3.50 (heck yes)
I had everything on hand except for the Be Grateful print which I found here and printed at FedEx. I spray painted/recycled random frames from throughout the house and used the plastic, silver spoons from a bridal shower I threw.
The “Taste” was a wedding gift from my cousin and her boyfriend. He hand-crafted it in his school’s workshop out of scrap metal. Forever grateful. (See what I did there?)
The thought behind Chip and I choosing the word “Taste” was two-fold:
1. It’s in the kitchen. Simple as that.
2. It’s a reference to Psalm 34:8 – “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” It’s a great reminder for us each day to savor every moment in our new home together.
Overall, I feel pretty great about the newest addition to our kitchen and can’t wait to continue making our house a home! So many great things in store! Stay tuned for updates!
