At first glance all you see is cereal.
But beneath is the wood that holds our family together. The solid wood table that we gather around 3x a day.
Finally, a big hearty meal.
But it’s not about what’s on the tables it’s about those around the table. I know my kids are going to grow up way too fast and I don’t want to miss the journey.
Joanna Gaines inspired me, during one of her episodes, when she talked about the importance of a good table. A table you love. Not only is it a center piece to your house, it’s also where you’ll be spending a big portion of your day. Hosting friends. Bonding with your family. Eating. Creating art. Making memories.
So, when we moved into the new house, I challenged myself to not just buy a table but wait until I absolutely loved it.
It would mark the start of a new chapter in our lives. New house (October), new baby (December), new table (May), new memories (timeless).
I found this Wayfair Crown Point 7 Piece Dining Set and fell in love. But to test it, I picked 10 other tables, opened them all up in separate tabs and let my husband choose. Low and behold he settled on the same one!! The dark color was perfect for our dining room (which has an open floor plan with the kitchen), the leaf is built in (so we don’t have to find a place to store it, older houses are notorious for very limited storage), the chair backs are bold and yet simple (which we both loved), and it was just the right size (for both our family and hosting friends).
I’m excited about all the memories that are gonna unfold around this table.
And the memories we have already made. The spilled milk. The art. The laughter. The Chinese take-out. And the cereal.

P.S. We also snagged these Wayfair Saddle Bar Stools while we were shopping, they slip perfectly under our island. My family hangs out in the kitchen way more now, my husband sits and chats, while my toddler sits on the stools and helps me cook.
