Quote of the Week

"The daily ritual of meals - the shared preparation and the act of eating with others - can bring people together in more than one sense. It is a time when bonds are formed and sustained, when stronger, richer human connections are created, a time to listen to each other, inform each other, entertain each other, and enjoy each other without the pressure that "quality time" seems to impose."

- Ilse Crawford, Home is Where the Heart Is

  5. I honestly love this quote so soo much! As I was growing up (and actually still now) my dad worked insane hours and sometimes dinner would be the only time I got to see him! All 5 of us love sitting down together and talking for hours with some amazing food my mom whipped up! Especially now that my brother and I go to school far away from home it is the most wonderful thing to spend an evening at the dinner table with my parents and younger sister whenever we are home for a visit. Funny how we have to grow up a little to truely appreciate the little things in life!!

    Thank you for sharing this!
