While I was out....

I have just returned home from an amazing 3 week journey through Europe~ I will post all about it once I have had a chance to go through all of my photos and sort things out.
But in the meantime, I wanted to post about what my friends did to my home while I was gone.
They had my house professionally cleaned, they rearranged furniture, they did so much yard work...
and painted my entire kitchen and back landing area and took my cabinets from an old out of date brown to a beautiful white!
I got home after a 5 hour delay and about 30 hours of traveling home and they were here at 4:45am ready to surprise me. They all had to work that day too.
I was so surprised and overwhelmed with emotion, I am not sure I thought what I was seeing was real.
I am a very lucky person, surrounded by such amazing people.
I have no words to express how grateful I am to them for all of the hard work they put into my home and making it cozy and beautiful.
Here is a before shot of the kitchen from last year....

And here is the after....

Thank you....
