Something in My Kitchen

Updated on February 25, 2013




This is Chef. He has been with me for a while. He was one of the first purchases I made after my divorce almost seven years ago. To me he represents a new start.

During my first marriage, I didn’t often have a say in how the house was decorated. I could choose the colors for the walls as long as I did the work. Anything else I picked out was often ridiculed. My ideas and thoughts about how to decorate was not appreciated or encouraged. I was always told that the idea was stupid and ugly – just like me.

When I moved out to my first ever house on my own, I had fun going to different home stores to get the decorations that I wanted. At one store, I found Chef. I fell in love with him immediately. He was just too adorable. As I looked around I found a kitchen full of things to match. I now have towels, pictures, a menu board and many other items that Chef helped me to find. But the most important thing Chef helped to find was my independence. I am pretty sure that Chef will be with me for many more years to come!

      If that's your picture and if you wrote this, you are both lovely and smart. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you're not.

      Great Hub.
