My name is Candace and I have been married to my college sweetheart, Andrew since September 2005. I am very blessed to say I am Mommy to Calleigh Elizabeth who was born in April 2008, Addison Grace who was born in May 2011 and a sweet angel in heaven who left us just as soon as we found out out it. Baby "T" was miscarried in December 2013. We are blessed with two furry puppies named Roo and Honey who we adopted. I have a job that I enjoy going to each and every day. I have family and friends who love me for me. I have a Savior who died on the cross for me. I am a very blesed to have the life that I have been given! Follow our family of four as we learn that life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain!

Those of you who know me know that I love to read other blogs and see what is going on in the lives of others around the world. One wonderful woman I have met through this process is Kelly Stamps(I have not really met her in person, but I am sure that we would be friends if we would ever meet!) On her blog she is doing a little edition called "Show us where you live Fridays" She is showcasing different rooms in her house and has invited us all to join in with her! This Friday's room is the Kitchen.
My house is older with so many older things, but my kitchen is one room I am proud of. We have done so much work to our kitchen....I wish I had better pictures, but I really forgot about this and these just happen to be the pictures I have....I promise to do better next time!
This is a view of my whole kitchen:
Some of the things we have done to this kitchen are paint, add border, changed out the light in the center of the room, painting the cabinets, and add a new fridge. We still would like to get a new sink and faucet, new flooring and a new stove, but keep the way the stove looks now. In the corner you will see a small little corner cabinet. I love older, primitive things, and this is great for storing snacks and small things like baby food. My parents got it for us for Christmas 2007 and I love it! Another thing that I love is the vase on the counter. It is carnival glass that my Mamaw had and my mom gave it to me. I have now started collecting more and more of it in hope of one day having a bigger kitchen with a china cabinet that I could showcase this all in. Some of the things that I love about this kitchen are the amount of cabinets I have, the older lights above the bar, but the thing I love the most is the stove:
Isn't that the best stove? The people who lived in the house before me did a lot wrong, but this is one things that is right! I love this!
I did not know if we were supposed to put our dining rooms on this, but I decided to wait for Kelly to do a dining room edition! So, if so, sorry, I'll get it next time!
