Today is the last day of summer vacation for my girls. I am full of all the mixed emotions moms usually have on this day. Part of me is saying "YEAH!" and part of me is heartbroken. It's been a good summer, but also it's been a bit of a whirlwind. Can't we have just one more week?

Also, it's pouring outside and I love the rain in early autumn. It makes the streets a little cleaner and the breeze is so nice and cool. We have the back doors and windows all open, and coloring books and puzzles all over the floors. It's been a lovely, lazy morning. And now I'm putzing around on Pinterest looking into kitchen floors, trying to figure out which direction I want to go there. I really need to decide soon.

So far, I'm most drawn to these these marble floors. Wouldn't they be perfect in my small kitchen? At this point, I'm open to most anything though and would love to hear what you used in your kitchens. Also, what would you never use again?
