I think there is something utterly lovely about the fact that life began in a garden. I love hands in soil, dirt in my nails, fresh flowers to be picked and food to be grown…it’s the most soul fulfilling to reap what you’ve labored over.
2. Sweet Tea
There’s nothing that brings my southern heart home like a tall glass of ice cold sweet tea. From weddings to graduations to family dinners and romantic evenings this drink has seen me through it all. It’s a memory with every sip.
It’s a truly beautiful thing to capture a moment, hold it still in one frame. It’s a kisses memory, a mother’s smile, an adventure explored, a feat conquered and I absolutely love collecting them.
To me they are an adventure yet to be had, a destination to explore, a culture to taste and a story to read. Every ingredient on every page is like reading someone else’s history, someone else’s passion and story. I have too many cookbooks to count and could spend hours reading them.
There’s nothing more love than being surrounded by people you love in an environment you created. I cherish the details that go into having someone over, the imagining for hundreds to sit at your perfectly set table. Hosting a get together, throwing a party or having a dinner. I can’t think of any better way to celebrate life.
