Holiday Entertaining and Gratefulness!

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”. That is what they say isn’t it? With this being the “most wonderful time of the year” comes the busiest time of the year as well!  Decorating our homes for the holidays, shopping for gifts, cooking our favorite recipes, and making sure our homes are looking their best. We entertain most of December from small intimate events to large family meals and I often wish I had a personal assistant. But until that happens, an assistant looks like this:

And having a pull-down kitchen faucet is a great tool (and a must in my kitchen). It makes it easy to clean the sink, get in the hard to reach areas and great for filling up your stockpots. This one is one of my favorites.


Our kitchen gets so much use and making sure everything looks as beautiful there as it does on my dining table is key!


With all the hustle and bustle happening in our lives this time of year, we need to take some time to reflect and be grateful for all that we have.  I am grateful for a beautiful home, decked out for the holidays and ready to greet friends and family.  My kitchen is the hub of it all and having beautiful ROHL faucets in my kitchen at both sinks creates the beautiful look I love to create in all of my projects.


Here’s to a stress-free holiday season full of love, food, friends, family and beauty.
