So I've been saying that I wanted a tile backsplash since our first house in Crystal Lake. In each house I said I was going to do it but never got around to it. Well third time's a charm! I finally found tile that inspired me to get the job done. I bought the tile without Dave's approval while he was in PA with the kids and was really worried how he'd react. It definitely wasn't what he expected, me neither actually. And when it came in I second guessed myself for a few days. I also ended up having to change a couple things on the fly, but all in all it turned out so much better than I had anticipated. And Dave loves it, too. I wish I had done it sooner.
