I had a sweet glass of carrot/apple juice this morning. The tin boxes on the top of the stove are full of loose tea my dear friends have gifted to me over the years. I like to share them as friends stop in for a visit here and there.
I recently pulled out our juicer that is normally kept underneath the counter and put the toaster away. You know, less processed carbs and more fresh fruits and veggies. As you can see, the parts are drying from actually being used this morning... My mother-in-law purchased this for us and I have really enjoyed having a quality juicer around the past several years.
A fridge says so much about people. We have recent photos of family and friends to remind us each day for whom to give thanks. There are a couple of drawings from the girls on the lower half. The magazine page is a picture of a mother helping her son to bake, and it has the quote I referenced above. We are currently fighting for a dream to be free from "jobs." We are building a business that will allow both Shane and I to be home full-time, all day, everyday, to raise our children together. This picture represents that time together as a family. The books on the top are my favorite cookbooks. I am a comfort food queen and "Kitchen Keepsakes" is full of classic recipes. I also like the Ball canning book. Oh, I love to see a shelf of beautiful foods "put away" in colorful jars for the colder months. Very satisfying to do it yourself!
