Welcome to March – the final month of us being a family of five. April will most probably see us welcome baby number four into the family – although, babies come when babies want to come.
I know this because Mr Moo was due in March and came in April (two weeks late). The Little Dude was due in October and came in September (two weeks early). And Z man was due in October and came in October (the day before his due date).
I look forward to maternity leave – although I doubt that it will be the ‘break’ that most people at work deem it to be. I look forward to the opportunity to get back into baking (and begin my own sourdough journey). I hope to be able to create some delicious treats

When planning a kitchen remodel, there are several factors to consider in order to plan and design a kitchen that best fits the needs of you and your family. Design elements such as the layout, workflow, lighting and renovation materials all play a huge role in the efficiency, quality, and functionality of your kitchen space.
When planning your kitchen remodeling project, think about layout, function, and efficiency. No matter what size or shape kitchen you design, it’s essential to create a kitchen layout that makes cooking easier and more efficient.
Maximize the Space
When designing your new kitchen, take advantage of every square inch of space. If you’re renovating your existing kitchen, you can gain space with taller overhead cabinets, corner cabinets, and built-in storage racks. If you’re adding on to your house and expanding the size of your kitchen, your options are endless.
Create a Good Workflow
When planning the placement of your refrigerator, sinks and other major appliances, create a convenient, easy path between them to maximize prep time and cooking efficiency. Make sure you have adequate electrical plugs scattered throughout the kitchen, so you can easily plug in small appliances when you need them.
A design element like exposed storage and cabinets is a great way to open up your kitchen and make it feel larger. Sometimes your kitchen may seem dark and cluttered when closed cabinets overpower the space. Opening up a few of those cabinets can freshen things up a bit while still being efficient for everyday use.
Open Spaces. Functional Kitchens
