I said this would be a blog about friendship as well as food. Well it's time to write a quick little note about that. I have been very blessed over the years to form friendships with some amazing people. Many of them I have met through the three fantastic jobs I've had over the last 15 years. Each one of those jobs has been with people of integrity, passion, and a deep desire to live in a world that is loving and good. From York Eye Associates, to Church of the Apostles, to Lancaster Theological Seminary, I really have been linked to some amazing people in each setting and I am grateful.
I also married into one of the kindest, funniest, best families on the planet. Thank you Youngs and Burchetts for changing my life and being not only family but friends. (Cousins getting tattoos together... really? You all rock!)
So, the best part about living near DC? Hosting our friends as they come to see this amazing city. We explore a new piece of it every time a friend stops by and we feel blessed to have them visit us (messy house and all-- there's a lot of love here). So here are a few quick photos of just SOME of the amazing people in our lives. It certainly isn't everyone who's come to visit, but it's a few of them. And-- I hope if you are in DC and you're one of those people who likes to share a meal with me, my fantastic hubby and my great kids-- (and my amazing ma too!).... that you will (please) come visit. We'll cook for you- or take you out- or just have a blast sitting around goofing off.
Until we are all at the table... with some bread, wine and family...
Much love to you all.
