Favorite Kitchens

I usually get up when it is dark, because I am such an early riser (I’m up before 5 a.m. most weekdays!).  I get to work at 7 a.m. so that I can leave at 3 p.m. and spend the afternoon with the boys.  Because I get up so early, I am usually the only one awake for at least an hour in the morning. I use this time to read my favorite design blogs and to write.

Today I woke up and went to my desk, only to be greeted by a  3 inch long palmetto bug. This one had long wings and looked greasy. Nobody from outside the South believes it, but these suckers will dive bomb you!

Thankfully, I had my ginormous Restoration Hardware catalogue on hand, and I squashed that sucker flat. I had to get out my Clorox wipes to wipe up – that critter was gross.

Don’t know what a palmetto bug is?  It’s basically the hugest flying roach you’ve ever seen. One of the joys of living in the south! Another joys of living in the South is all of the great designers that live here. The pictures I posted here are some of my favorite kitchens, and by chance, they all just happen to be by Southern designers!
