Hi friends! If you didn’t see on my Facebook page or Instagram, Mr. LMB & I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary this past saturday. We had the best day.. you know one of those days that you just don’t want to end? That was saturday. I know it’s cliche but I feel like every year being married it just gets better. Every year I love him more & I really don’t know how that is possible. Anyways enough of the sappy stuff, I wanted to show you tiny glimpse into our Historic Kitchen tour that we did during our “day date” on Saturday. On the tour their were 9 historic homes with all different kitchens, some newly renovated, some restored kitchens, & all with some very fabulous features! We got inspired for our kitchen remodel in our Michigan home coming up in the next year. & one of the 9 stops was at Tryon Palace, which is a large historic icon in our town. I didn’t get many photos on the tour because it was with a lot of people & it was hard to get good shots of the homes, & also because I was enjoying the time with my husband & hearing about the homes & didn’t want to be distracted by my camera.
Saturday was proof to me again that you can find inspiration anywhere. Inspiration in unexpected places is sometimes the best form of inspiration. Patterns in brick, garden arrangements, & homes that you may not like every detail, but there is always the chance that you may like one or two small parts… so pay attention & notice the beauty around you. Find inspiration everywhere.
The Tryon Palace is a huge piece of history in our town. I drive by it all the time, but for some reason in the 6 years of living here I had never toured it. We only got a glimpse of it on Saturday so I am excited to go back and tour the whole thing. It’s such a beautiful place!
This home of this kitchen above was amazing. It was an 8 bedroom, 4 bathroom 1800’s home. It was in the process of being renovated & this part of the kitchen. The cool thing about the kitchen is that it was identical on both ends. On each end there was this large window & a kitchen sink. So many stunning details!
For more photos you can check out my Instagram profile for pictures I took with my phone. I am a little disappointed I didn’t get photos of each kitchen, but maybe next time. Have you ever done a kitchen tour before? It was so fun. They had food at each stop for us & there was even an outdoor barbecue kitchen that was pretty amazing too. It was fun to tour these historic homes that I drive by everyday. I would love to hear what you think about the tour, leave a comment below or find me on social media.. I would love to hear from you!
