Good bread and wine are two things I have grown to love over the years. As I become older, I appreciate more and more the simplicity of gathering around the table with friends or family to break bread and drink wine. My roommate Nikki, who knows how much I adore spending time in the kitchen, gave me this book for my birthday and I finally had the time to read it over Spring Break. In the book, Shauna recalls why her favorite place among all others is being around a table with those she loves. She shares stories—both high and low—about her life and how many things were healed, celebrated and cherished while sitting around the table. She talks about her struggles with pregnancy, her European travels with family, being an author on book tours, and how at the end of the day, all she craves is sharing a meal with people around the table.
