Spring Cleaning. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. It started a few weeks ago with cleaning out our pantry and refrigerator. It continued last week with emptying out of basement. And this weekend I deep cleaned our kitchen. But here is the interesting part. Before I started the “deep cleaning”, I “spring cleaned my cleaning products” first.
The theme for my blog this month is outdoor entertaining. With summer just around the corner, it is the perfect time to get everything ready outside for entertaining. Most of you know how much I love to cook. (Although I should admit that I like to entertain more than just cook.) About ten years ago I talked my husband into adding an outdoor kitchen to our backyard. We already had the barbecue and smoker so adding the outdoor kitchen really meant we were adding the island with the counter and a few kitchen items. It’s one of my favorite “rooms” in our home.
I never expected that putting all of my Christmas decor away would be so much fun. Tackling the kitchen wasn’t difficult at all. In fact, I really enjoyed styling our kitchen for the winter season.
As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
