Celebrating Gracious Moments
"To invite a person into your house is to take charge of his happiness
so long as he is under your roof."
The ancient Roman philosopher Seneca
set a table of humble yet delicious foods before his friends
"When shall we live if not now?"
Do not wait for that longed-for
someday to savor the blessings of Celebration.
The house need not be perfectly decorated or tidy...
need not match...
the foods do not have to be grand or expensive.
All that is necessary to pleasantly enjoy the company of family and friends is to...
This affection will be made visible
in thoughtfully prepared foods presented in a warm and inviting setting.
