The Maynard Cape: Can't See The Forest For The Trees

I feel like a lot happened at the house this weekend and then when I was telling someone about what I spent my time doing all I could think was, "I tiled the bathroom shower." Maybe it's just that a lot had happened while I wasn't there. Like below:

Can lights were installed in the living room ceiling and my father finished the shiplap wall. Then, and I neglected to take a picture of this, he spent Saturday morning creating a shiplap backing to the kitchen peninsula to match the living room wall. We're all about continuity here at Blackburn Family Design. My dad was also working on the crown molding in the kitchen, which I also neglected to take a photo of. What is my excuse? Well I was cutting tile, putting goop on tile, running out to the hardware store when the O ring in the tile saw machine froze and then snapped, running out to Concord Lumber to pick up a needed piece of backer board. But it was a warm (hello climate change), sunny February day so I didn't mind bopping around Acton, Maynard, and Concord. 

Also, Pottery Barn delivered the cabinets that will go next to the laundry machines in the first floor bathroom and I cannot wait to see them installed. But before that can happen I need to grout.

I have loved all the tile we've used in past houses (especially the textured tile we used in the Harvard Ranch, and which I just realized scrolling back through posts that I did not take a close-up photo of - what is wrong with me?), but this tile, which has a matte finish looks like marble and I love it so much and then go home at night and shower in my gross shower insert and want to cry. Uuugh, I love it so much. Is it wrong to obsess over a tile? Then i don't want to be right.
