good company

blueberry pancakes to come
On the menu this morning: fresh blueberry pancakes, apple-smoked bacon and strawberries.

Wherever we do end up, I vow to have more brunches and dinner parties and people over for no reason at all. I love setting the table just right, turning up the tunes and making a meal that makes me proud. I love looking around the table and seeing the faces of people I adore. I love eating, talking and laughing until our bellies slightly ache and we are content.

Someday, I want to have the house where everyone knows they can stop by any time, where you are always welcome to stay for dinner and where you want  to stay long after dinner is through.

The term “housewarming” never made more sense to me. There is always a light and warmth lingering in our home long after the company has gone.
