Here is a fascinating article about "gourmet" kitchens and what they mean in this America that I call home.
I love this. I love this partly because I am thinking constantly about updating our kitchen (no new appliances, unfortunately) but also because I think a lot about what I do to make my house a home. The kitchen is crucial. We both love to cook, but we don't do it every night and I worry about how we'll cook and eat together when the baby times come. I feel like I have something in my grasp now, but the current is flowing and I must hold on to these habits or I'll be swept into the land of Eat Out In.
