It is finally happening.  We are remodeling our kitchen.  This kitchen has been one of the most frustrating things in this house and we are finally in a position to not only remodel it, but do it the right way.

This blog is to document our journey through this process.   Capture the excitement, the changes, and yes the frustration as I am sure there will be some.

And after the kitchen is done, I can then capture the adventures of cooking in my new digs!

A little about me – my name is Pam (of course).   I am married to a wonderful supportive man that I love with all my heart, Tom.   We have 3 dogs who keep us on our toes – Tasha our 11 year old Golden Retriever, Stella, our almost 6 year old yorkie mix, and our newest addition, Chloe,  a huge puppy who is Bernese Mountain Dog and Poodle.  I am sure they will show up in posts in the future.

Professionally, I am a wedding officiant.   Yes, I marry people.  I love what I do and while it does have its stresses, it is wonderful to do a job where you are bringing love together and making people happy.

I am also passionate about sexual violence awareness and lead a group of college students from the University of Michigan (and a few community members) to put on the annual Take Back the Night rally and march on campus every April.  This is a huge labor of love and does help to use my “Mom” mode when I get to cook for them.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope those who visit can share in the joy of our new project!
