Things I love about my kitchen

According to my mom, the kitchen in the house where I spent the first 7 years of my life was perfect.  She even wrote down all the dimensions so that if my parents ever had the opportunity to build their own house, she could exactly replicate the kitchen.
My current kitchen is not perfect, but today I realized there are a few things I absolutely love about it.  The counters may be too low and we may be lacking a garbage disposal and dishwasher, but I am still pretty attached to my kitchen.
 Here are some of my favorite things:

The little soccer outfit thing I got in Chile that now adorns the window:
The view of the yard:
The pot of chives, a housewarming present from my wonderful friend Hillary:
My KitchenAid mixer attachments, which conveniently hang on the wall:
Spanish magnetic poetry on the fridge:
The spice shelves - everything within easy reach:
The ibrik hanging on the wall - for my Turkish coffee addiction:
The beer stein full of kitchen utensils:
The shelf of cookbooks (moderatley convenient as they are in the kitchen but I have to climb up on the counter to get them):
So, what do you love most about your kitchen?

I would say nothing.. well except for my kitchen aid and food processor. Our undersized kitchen needs a major renovation. I'm constantly bumping into things or knocking things over my counter!

I love my gas stove (I had an electric stove in my old kitchen). I am also newly in love with my microwave cart which got the microwave OFF the counter!

I love my gas stovetop and the counter that makes entertaining a breeze.

I'm liking your hanging kitchenaid attachments!

My kitchen is small and narrow, but there's so much I love about it. After five years of heavy use I've got a set up I'm happy with, where everything feels like it's where it should be. My new gas cooker aint bad either :)

I like how the cabinets in our kitchen go all the way up to the ceiling - no need trying to figure out what to do with the space above the cabinets!
