I am a self-described memory hoarder. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll see exactly what I mean. I didn’t start out this way, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve learned to take the time to enjoy life’s simple moments and savor them.
This love of memories is born of my understanding of how much the people in my life mean to me.
It’s this understanding that has led me to live as I would eulogize. I didn’t always have this understanding, but I wish I did.
What does live as you eulogize mean? It means you don’t wait until it’s too late to live the life you want or say the things you feel. I don’t wait to tell my loved ones how much I love them. I don’t wait until tomorrow to start chasing my dreams. This is how Fifth & Cherry came to be.
I think the kitchen is the center of life. It’s where friends and family share the simple joy of being around each other and make the memories that last a lifetime. Here’s why memories around food are so powerful. I also think life is short and moves way too quickly.
This is why Tanya and I started Fifth & Cherry. Our cutting boards are high-quality conduits to some of your fondest memories.
Social media is supposed to connect us, but in reality, we've never felt more isolated. We're missing those moments of real connection in our lives, the ones we share intimately with the people most important to us.
Every time you use an F&C cutting board you’ll be transported back to the first time your future wife cooked lasagna for you, the meal you shared when you celebrated your first anniversary or the time over dinner she told you that she’s having a boy.
Food brings us together and F&C lets you keep those memories alive forever...just the way it should be. I’d love to know some of your best memories created while cooking. Please drop us a line or comment below!!
