therapy over the rainbow

I did something that really made my heart sing this week. It's something I highly recommend to anyone who has worked on a big project or room for a looong long time as we have with our kitchen. (keep it clean people)

I made a before and after slide show on I get to magically watch my kitchen go from a dingy dirty hellhole to bright cheery shiny happy people place.

I feel like REM's "Shiny Happy People" should be playing in the background here- can you hear it? Or maybe it's an older song, something more nostalgic. I think you know the one I mean.

I just keep watching this slideshow over and over- it really brings home the amount of work we've done. It's an affirmation. Like I said, I highly recommend it. It's easy to get caught up in what still has to be done (and it's quite a bit) but it is so important to acknowledge our accomplishments.

I decided I'm going to make one with more different stages. I took pictures from the same angle so it works really well. I have to figure out a way to post it on the blog as a link because that would be a nice thing to have.

Holy Toledo! I think that is the first time I've seen your before pictures. I knew it was a big transformation, but seeing those pictures really did put it into perspective. You should be a Shiny Happy Person Some Where Over The Rainbow for doing all that work.

Your kitchen really is a beautiful room, and a wonderful testament to an old home. Y'all should be proud.

Great idea. It is a beautiful transformation. I'd watch it before working on any project! I hope you can get the slideshow on the blog- I would love to see it!
