about a table
In a world where busy-ness defines life, many of us have forgotten the enjoyment that comes from a meal prepared with care and shared around a table set with love. Be proactive in creating community around you. Invite friends and family and spend time around a table, telling stories, laughing and crying together, sharing food and drink…
Share and savor life together.
