  • It’s really about simplicity, and it also goes for the food. Food is simple and homemade. You eat the old-fashioned stuff that has been made for generations.
  • All those small moments in between the big moments are just as important and precious. Feelings of connection, presence, simplicity, and joy are what enriches our lives at a deeper level.
