Do you ever take a moment to think about what your purpose is? What is your why? What is the impact you want to leave behind? I have always known that I wanted to help others, but it was not until about two years ago that I really understood the importance of my why. Family. See, I didn’t have a close family growing up. I do not come from a happily ever after family. Every family has their ups and downs. I learned family does not only have to be blood. Family can be friends who are there for you through thick and thin- the ones who you would do anything for. Loved ones who are your ride or dies. Now that’s family.
The relationship I have with my mom's parents (pictured above) is something I am eternally grateful for. Some of my fondest memories growing up was going to visit my grandma and grandpa in Palm Springs. My sister and I always looked forward to their delicious cooking. It wasn't until I was older that I realized the impact they had on me. Now don't get me wrong, their food was to die for, but that was not what I loved about being there. When I look back on those times, what stands out to me is the quality time I got to spend with the people I love while creating those incredible meals.
One day, I want to have a large family of my own to add on to the family I have made over the years. My family will have memories of us all being together, having fun and laughing. We will drink some fabulous wine among great company, and to top it all off, enjoy some damn good food.
Serving Memories focuses on combining quality time with loved ones while having everyone participate in the process of making that damn good food.
Sometimes, it's nice to take a step back and live in the moment. It is important to cherish the memories we make because those will live on forever. Let us go back in time- step away from your phone and turn off the tv. Gather around the dinner table and bring the family back together again.
With that being said, welcome home to Serving Memories.
