Into the Mess: Bread and Wine - Shauna Niequist
Good bread and wine are two things I have grown to love over the years. As I become older, I appreciate more and more the simplicity of gathering around the table with friends or family to break bread and drink wine. My roommate Nikki, who knows how much I adore spending time in the kitchen, gave me this book for my birthday and I finally had the time to read it over Spring Break. In the book, Shauna recalls why her favorite place among all others is being around a table with those she loves. She shares stories—both high and low—about her life and how many things were healed, celebrated and cherished while sitting around the table. She talks about her struggles with pregnancy, her European travels with family, being an author on book tours, and how at the end of the day, all she craves is sharing a meal with people around the table.
I read her first book, Cold Tangerines, after graduating college and fell win love with her authentic story-telling. Years later, during a time of transition, Bittersweet spoke to my life in a completely different way. I love this. As you may imagine, there are certain fitness types that I have trouble connecting with. Like…most of them.
