One aspect of the choice is my kitchen sink. Originally the bottom cabinets would all be gray. But then I had a brainstorm. I've often wished I could have a farmhouse sink. Wouldn't it look nice with my charcoal gray cabinets? Like in this picture I found on Pinterest:
And now that I'm looking at that picture up above I'm second guessing my decision to leave the upper cabinets white. Oh dear. I wish I were a more decisive person.
Anyway, the title of this post is Black and White. So where's the black? Just in this little story that has nothing to do with my kitchen or any other decorating topic. Yesterday afternoon my husband and I decided to do a little back road rambling to take in the beautiful Wisconsin fall colors, stopping here and there along the way to shoot a few photos. I spotted a pretty pastoral scene of some Holstein heifers dotting a green hillside, with a backdrop of beautifully colored trees. We pulled over and I hopped out to get the photo. No sooner had I exited the car than I heard a far off greeting moo-ed to me, and then one by one the girls started ambling down the hill in single file towards us. Slowly but steadily they eventually all made it to the fence line where we were waiting. I'm guessing there were about fifteen or twenty cows in all. We had a nice little visit as they posed for their photos, which I promised I'd put up on my blog. Making good on my word, here are my new bff's.
Suddenly craving some milk and oreos.
I'll leave you with this beautiful view. I truly feel like I'm living in a paradise this time of year.
