blog-5387 blog-5390 blog-5397 blog-5401blog-5382We were finding sanctuary at home this past weekend.  Slowed down, enjoyed time with our boys, and took lots of deep, calming breaths.  Meals are becoming a ritual, and I love it.

Set the kitchen table with the clean placemats, candles, the nice pewter water jug.   Roasted a chicken and vegetables with the last rosemary and lavender I cut from my yard in Virginia as the movers packed up this very same kitchen table.  (Maybe the first little yellow crocus will be up soon in that yard, I wonder.)  I tried a new recipe for cauliflower  – it is amazing.  All the while helped by the sweetest little kitchen companion.
