What's On Your...Kitchen Counter


THE RAVENNA HOUSE This post is part of a collaborative series called, "What's on Your...".  It's a real-life glimpse into 9 bloggers homes - the good, the bad, and the messy.  Each month we'll focus on a new surface like a bedroom nightstand, a kitchen counter, or a bookcase.  And today, we're looking at another hard working surface in the house:

Kitchen COunterOur kitchen is truly the heart of our home.  We spend a ton of time in here cooking, eating, playing, petting the dog, and everything in between.  And it often looks like it.  Usually there's a stack of dishes drying next to the sink, apple slices on the counter, and a half-finished art project or two by the window.  Last week our countertop was full of baking supplies as I whipped up a loaf of cinnamon swirl bread.  This cinnamon swirl bread to be precise.  And yes, it was delicious!

Later that night, Wilder and I hung out in the kitchen and enjoyed hot-from-the-oven cinnamon swirl bread.  It was glorious.  One quick look at our kitchen counter after all was cleaned up, because who doesn't love a clean countertop (especially because this seems to only happen when company comes over...)?
