I have always loved stories – reading them, telling them, dreaming about them. And this place is just that…a place for stories about my family and my friends and the place we call home. Occasionally a recipe will show up, but most of all this is just the stories of my day to day life.
My life, so please be kind.
Most of our life centers around our garden. It’s not just about the food eaten at its long table…it’s also about the stories during dinner parties that are both written and told.
As for me…I am Michele. I’m best known as Michael’s wife and Matthew, Alex and Brian’s mom. They are all three grown up now and living lives in many different places (China! Colorado!) but thankfully still remember that their Dad and I are their home.
And we aren’t against reminding them of that.
I realize that there is so much more to me than all of this…but one of the most important things about me is that I’ve always felt called to my home. To take care of my people…and the best way I know to do that is to feed them well.
So please, knock on the door and come in for dinner.
“that house…was a perfect house, whether you like food, or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness.”
