simple is best {for today}

Work is still insanely busy and my to do list seems to be growing and growing (much faster than I can check items off.) So, I am very much looking forward to a quiet evening of relaxation and some time away from my dreaded list. I think that coming home to this clean and simple kitchen would definitely be the perfect start to such an evening.

I just love the whitewashed floors, simple open shelving and the farmhouse sink!

Not to mention the overwhelming charm and delightful lack of clutter.

Ahh, I feel better already! What helps you transition from work to relax mode at the end of the day? Hope that you have a wonderful evening.

no really, walking my pup right when I get home from work .... we walk lazily along, while the sunsets and it just releases all the stress of the day.

I wish my kitchen was this uncluttered. I recently got cable, so lately I've been wtching tv to unwind, which is rare for me.

Transitioning from work to relax, a walk, a run, a drink, playing outside, having dinner as a family and reading help me to relax, until my mind wanders to work or my next blog post.
