Funny you should ask. In lieu of doing work around the house yesterday (or going to bed at a reasonable time...) I did a little reading about marble. There was a good article (which includes links to other articles - rabbit-hole warning!) on one of my favorite time-wasting sites, "kitchn". The writer discusses her pros and cons of having a vast amount of marble in her very busy kitchen. It's only one person's opinion, but you might be interested in it.

OK you three, I'm embarrassed enough! I guess it's time I got offline and did something productive. I'm no good here right now!

I was wondering how I happened upon that link...

Alright you guys. Enough!

Besides, that article was so good it needed to be posted twice. And...maybe again.
