I’ll take a narrow yard, a smaller garage, subtract a bedroom, and other areas of sacrifice in order to have a kitchen where my entire family fits comfortably and can make memories happen. (And I totally know that those “sacrifices” are not real sacrifices… I feel very blessed and very thankful for every square foot of my house.) I was challenged by in conjunction with their new “Out of the Kitchen” series to reflect on how I value personal relationships in my kitchen.
