I have so much that I would like to share, but so little time. I think that will result in lots of short posts for a while. This one will be the first in a series on the renovations we’ve been doing. And of course, starting with the best room: the kitchen (and laundry, since it’s in the same room.)

From cooking traditional Polish dishes with my mom, aunts, and grandmothers, experimenting by putting anything I could get my hands on into one bowl to test out a new “recipe,” or just standing around the kitchen island enjoying snacks during family gatherings. It is a very communal space. One that is truly a marker of identity in any culture.
For this reason, the kitchen at Birdsong Homestead was the only room I really had a vision for before moving in. It has come a long way in the last month, but is still not complete. Here is a photo dump of the current progress for your perusal:
