I spend the vast majority of time I'm at home in the kitchen. When people come over, that's usually where we congregate.
Right now my kitchen, like the rest of my apartment, is small, but someday that won't be the case. I will have a huge, country-style kitchen. It'll have a big island in the middle, and my guests will have a glass of wine and gossip while I chop and stir.
I can't wait.
