This is summer to me. Bright sunlight spilling through the windows, chopping perfectly imperfect fresh veggies from my mother-in-law’s garden, singing along to happy tunes I’ve got blasting. This was a good day.
The kitchen is possibly my favorite room in the house and where I spend the most time. Although these days I’m not cooking much, just eating a lot, whoops. But it’s my little safe haven where I keep two stools – one for me, and one for my kitchen helper, my little gray tabby Hana. It’s where I eat all my meals because let’s be honest, even on the rare occasion hubby is home, he usually scarfs down half his meal before it can ever leave the pan. And it’s where I like to sit and rest after loading up the dishes in the dishwasher, and wait with my fuzzy kitchen helper until they’re done because she loves to snuggle up on the warm washer door. Such a cutie pie.
Of course, it’s not all idyllic moments like those. Other times I’m wading through a counter full of dirty dishes because my meringue didn’t turn out and I had to run to the store and then start all over again. Or I’ve been sitting with a bent back and sore hands from decorating sugar cookies all day. Or the cats decided to ravage the mini cheesecakes I made by eating and stepping in them. Well, that’s a true story but it was a different kitchen and different cats. Anyways, I get through the good and bad with my favorite kitchen companion: music.
Whether it’s reminiscing with mellow hipster music from my college days or shamefully singing along to bubbly K-pop, I blast music from my kitchen 24/7. Besides my furry friends, my Bluetooth speaker is my best kitchen companion. What did I even do before Bluetooth? I really don’t remember. But take a long look at my beautiful Trakk portable Bluetooth speaker. You know I love gold, and I love it’s sleek minimalism. This is Trakk’s CEO speaker which has awesome sound, is super light and perfectly portable, and plays for up to 24 hours. Trakk makes a lot of heftier, even waterproof speakers, but I am so in love with this trendy gold one. Check out more of it’s virtues and find it at a great price on Amazon HERE. What kind of music do you guys jam out to in the kitchen?
