A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

It All Started with a Itty Bitty Sink

For an almost 50 year old home, updating, or more aptly, keeping it up to date, is key to "successful" or prudent, home ownership. So when the master bedroom and bath renovation began this spring, changing the barely 24" wide by a 29" tall sink was high on the list. Maybe people were shorter 50 years ago? It baffled us for years that the sink was so short, but thankfully, it is now set at a "proper" height of about 34" and that certainly make a difference, and a good one at that, for sure!

A big shout of THANKS to Mike Serafini for transforming the master bath with his fastidious attention to detail in converting our itty bitty sink to two high performing sinks that we simply love (which also included moving a wall/closet/plumbing/electric). The closet was cut in half to make room, but that too was converted to very accessible and usable space for much needed storage (we fight for inches in these Levitt homes without basements!). If it's noticeable from the attached photo that the shower doors have not been swapped out...yet...you are right, but they are on order and will be installed soon for the renovation to be complete! Even now though, when we step into this updated space, we feel like we are in an hotel bathroom and that's not too shabby at all!
