New Lighting {Kitchen & Family Room}

Dear Friends,
   My birthday came early this year.  The big day isn’t until the end of the month but my in-laws generously gifted us with the light that I was coveting for the family room.  So, goodbye fan.  I didn’t feel your cool breeze ten feet in the air.  And your light was stingy at best. You were certainly an attractive, craftsman style beauty (for a fan) so I’ll give you that.

Hello, Not-A-Fan.  I love your 15 bulb capacity.  And your brilliant light reminds us that no, we are not nocturnal after-all even if we do squint like little moles while we get used to your heavenly glow.

That light was a beast to put up.  We left it to the professionals and I still had to hide in the other room because I was having serious anxiety watching the cirque du soleil take place in my family room.  
I splurged on a new kitchen lantern after saying I wasn’t going to. I no longer had to save for a family room chandelier, so why not?  I can justify with the best of them.
Why, yes, that lantern was featured on Catalog Friday a while back.  🙂
I’m glad I decided to change up the kitchen light.  I really liked the other one but it didn’t fit as well with the kitchen’s new look. I’m selling it on Craig’s List along with the fan so I will be reimbursed for most of it.
Lighting for the new house?  Check.  It feels good to cross something totally off the list!
