So check this out...my inlaws recently had granite installed in their kitchen and they selected Venetian Ice. This granite is almost identical to Santa Cecilia which is what we selected to be in the kitchen, (actually it's 1 of 2 things my husband picked for the house). Well.....after seeing it in their kitchen I found out that I really didn't like it much at all. Don't get me wrong- I think it's pretty and from pictures I've seen it looks nice, but to me when I saw it in person all over their kitchen it looked too busy to me and I wasn't loving all the gold tones. After thinking about it all day Saturday and kinda freaking out thinking about having to look at it in the new kitchen for a veeeerrrrry long time I decided about 1030pm to send an email to our SR and beg her to please see if there was anyway that it could be changed. She emailed me back this afternoon and said that she received "special approval" to make this change :) She is my hero!! I was worried and upset over this and now I feel so relieved. I follow a blogger that selected the New Caledonia granite to be paired with her Maple Butterscotch glazed cabinets and it looks amazing- so I'm admittedly a copycat. It give her and her good taste complete credit.

I feel like I've been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster- a few weeks ago I was so mad because nothing was going on and now I'm just thrilled that things are working out and because there's progress and communication. I hope all goes well and pray that everything will work out.
