“Throughout history, people of all different cultures and religions have paused before a meal in order to express gratitude for the nourishment food provides. This practice not only leads to a more present and enjoyable eating experience, but also helps us appreciate the great communal effort that goes into growing, harvesting, and preparing each ingredient. “ - Wanderlust
This rings true to the collaboration for our November project. This year has brought so many great relationships and work that we are truly grateful for. We pause, reflect and give thanks for it all.
As the change in seasons brings with it what can be an overwhelming and stressful time of entertaining - we are inspired by the words and images by Julie Pinter Adams in her book Wabi-Sabi Welcome: Learning to Embrace the Imperfect and Entertain with Thoughtfulness and Ease: “Practicing wabi-sabi means learning that impermanence is part of what makes things intriguing and appealing, and embracing dying as a necessary part of life. When we allow living things to fade in full view, we welcome loveliness in transience. Living things are always changing, and those changes can be truly extraordinary.”
There is great beauty and comfort in simplicity. In un-fussiness and quiet. Sharing time and sharing food. Wishing everyone a peaceful and plentiful Thanksgiving - so glad we can share what we love with you. Cheers!
