I came home from work yesterday to find our kitchen finally completed (our contractor had an emergency appendectomy right before Christmas, with literally a day's worth of work left which pushed back the timeline)! I can't tell you how happy I am about it! I still have about 7 boxes of stuff to unpack, but the essentials are all out.
I should add a caveat to the pics though - Mike still has to do the baseboards and paint the board above the window that the blinds will be hung from. Also, I haven't rehung my copper hanging baskets by the sink, nor put out my vintage copper & yellow breadbox. It has rust on the bottom and is going to need to be sealed before it can sit on the white countertop.

Our contractor was Joe Reinhardt of Akzent Cabinetry. He custom built the cabinets and was wonderful to deal with, very accommodating to my many requests.
