It was all very exciting, and as I was asking her all about it, she confessed to me that she could make neither head nor tail of the drafted plans, and that her husband had ended up making her a teeny tiny diorama of their new house so that she could understand what he could quite clearly see on paper.
We both had a little giggle at this, and I confessed that I couldn't read a plan for the life of me either, and while we were at it I never could see my babies in those ultrasound photos. As we were talking, I mentioned that it really was a very sweet thing of her husband to have done, and how touched I was by his thoughtfulness towards her.
Fast forward to this weekend, when three lovely friends of mine came over for afternoon tea, carrying a shoebox with them.
I was pretty sure I knew what was going to be in that shoebox, one of my friends is an architect, the other an interior designer, and they have generously been planning a new kitchen for me for quite some time now.
And I was right, because in the box were the plans for my kitchen... and something completely unanticipated...
So this post is dedicated to Tess, Danielle, and Chris.
Who touched my heart with their thoughtfulness...
And fabulous dress sense...
I adore my kitchen plans.
And I can't wait to cook for you all in it.
Thank you so much ladies!
