Brunch Debut

View More: I love brunch. I have to admit, the guest got the full brunt of my excitement and appreciation of brunch food.  The menu offered a great variety and was filling to say the least.

The table was filled with rich conversation.  It brings joy to me when I see people connect, laugh, and savor the moment. Wholesome food has a way of bringing people together. We all know how special of these moments around a meal. We often come to the point are hearts are yearning for nourishment for our bodies and our souls.  So why do we as a culture not take the time to deal with both?

I can only speak for myself, but it is when I get so caught up in work, email, errands, meetings, and the day-to-day grind that I feel so emptied and selfish. I encourage you to create opportunities to be present. Have co-workers over, asking the neighbors in for the first time, or just sitting down at the table with everyone in your household for a family dinner.  Step away from the busy.
