It is my favorite time of year to cook. The chore of feeding my family, when done in the right frame of mind, is an act of love. Every ingredient, every action, each step of the process from taking out the pans, to lighting candles on the table, to rinsing dishes in the sink, becomes a ritual.
A Ritual is a ceremony, a prescribed series of steps done with reverence and care. How can you make the little, everyday tasks of your home into rituals? How can you invite ceremony into the simple chores of life? Breathe, be mindful, play music, light candles. Make your home your sanctuary.
