[love in the kitchen]

 kirsten from 6th street design shares her tips and love for lamps

she posted this fabulous kitchen picture and i just thought it was so unique to have lamps on the island like this.  i would never think to do that.  so beautiful and welcoming at the same time.  love that.
ahh, this kitchen is to die for!

speaking of kitchens and comfort - i love these too.  i wrote down this best ever chocolate chip cookie recipe that my mom had a while ago.  we made them again the other day and they are just so delicious!  
that's all we need, right?  one more yummy dessert recipe.  try these - for whatever reason i've never been able to make really good chocolate chip cookies until i baked these... 
they're so moist, chewy and divine!
