  1. Hello Sara! I came across your blog about living at home with your parents. I found it to be really refreshing and inspiring. Although I do not live with my parents anymore, I do find myself connected to what you wrote about family and trying to keep your head up.

    I’ve been married to my best friend, the love of my life and the only one that really gets me, for almost 15 wonderful years. For the last 10 years, I’ve been a stay at home dad to my amazing son, Cameron. During those 10 years, I would stay at home during the day, Monday through Friday, and then wait tables Wed through Sunday. I’ve always felt that I had to contribute some way, never really realizing that being a stay at home day is contributing to our lives.

    Now, my son is almost 10 years old and I’m 42 years old. I’ve had work experience designing web pages (self taught) but feel that industry isn’t for me anymore. So I started to go with what I really liked to do when I was growing up – and that is wood-working.

    Today, I’ve managed to start my own wood-working business from my garage. It’s called Luminous Silhouettes and friends, family and people I’ve never met are saying great things about it.

    I wanted to say all of this because you have inspired me to work harder and love life more and yes, even get closer to my parents.

    Thanks Sara and keep up the great work. You are a very sincere and excellent writer.

    And the great pictures? Yours too? Well done, Sara!
    Your blog is the perfect mix of text and taste. All all my cook books are in a container somewhere on the ocean, but now I’ve decided I don’t need them… will just follow your lead, and cook what you cook. Your bobotie sounds better than mine, anyway, and I don’t want to have to try converting ingredients and measurements now I’m in Florida-mode.

    Many thanks and good luck
