What do you remember?

I received a great comment from one of my anonymous guests, who profoundly said "When you invite someone to your home they will mostly likely remember the food and conversation you shared. We pour our hearts into making someone's experience a pleasant one through our cleaning and cooking. It in turn invites our guests to open their minds and hearts to us."

I couldn't have said it better myself. My end goal of inviting someone into my home is to see a glimpse of who they; to be peppered by their knowledge and graced by a glance of their heart. If it is true that food and conversation are most remembered, I'd imagine that conversation outlives the food.
I’d like to encourage my followers to share their most memorable conversation as a guest or a host!


  1. I have to admit, I usually don't remember the food or the drinks (usually cuz alcohol can clutter the memor), but I always remember the laughter and the joy of being with great company. When a host/hostess put their hearts into it, it truly shows and the guest that receives such an invitation is also truly blessed.

  2. The many times I have been invited to my friends house to eat is the food and the conversation. I have been cooking for many years and I know the time and love some people put into their cooking. Lupe
