And then there was light

If you live in Milwaukee and have never been to BBC Lighting, their showroom is worth a visit. Not just for the Swarovski chandeliers and Waterford lamps but for the free popcorn. How often do you go to a store that encourages you to eat while you shop? You can also browse their selection of framed celebrity photos. It’s a surreal experience.

Today I bought a semi-flush mount fixture. Not too boring, not too modern — a good fit for my tiny kitchen. Then Denise and I hung out with Papa while Jeremy installed the new fixture. (So handy — thanks, Jeremy!)

Now the kitchen beams out 300 watts of light. It's a vast improvement over the 60 watts I'd gotten by with over the summer.

300 watts!!!!! I'd be blind.

It is blinding (esp. compared to 60 watts). I don't mind semidarkness, but I figured the kitchen was one room that could benefit from adequate lighting. :)

I love the fixture! You and Denise did a great job picking it out--sorry I missed the fun. :( Jeremy is so handy--I need to find a handy man. ;)
