A Bit About Us

What makes your house a home?
What makes your house a home?

Our lives are busy and full and sometimes we forget to do the small things to help us enjoy them.  We encourage you to bring out your best and use it every day ~ because you deserve it.

So, who are we?  We are avid lovers of food, wine, brew and great friendships.  We believe that we should live our lives out loud and enjoy every aspect of who we are, every day and we are working to bring to you the very best of what our lives can hold.  Great recipes to feed your families and decorating ideas for your home because your haven should be all that you want it to be.

This year, 2015 we are taking you with us on the road, to taste foods and sip fine wines and great brews.  We are showcasing area Chef’s in our “Visiting Chef’s” dinner series and pairing their creations with ambrosial wines, brews and cocktails.  Stay tuned…you won’t want to miss a post!

The 2015 Fall and Holiday season brings new design, decor, recipe, travel  and entertaining ideas to a new level. We look forward to bringing you the best!
