Hey friend! I’m Mackenzi and I am sincerely happy you’ve found your way to my internet front porch! Here is where I invite you to pour yourself a cup of something delicious, and chat with me about all things home + life around the family table.

One of my favorite things to do in our home is to make wholesome and delicious food for the people I love because it never ceases to amaze me the way that good food brings people together.

When I was 16, well before the days of Pinterest and Instagram, my mom and I would peruse the pages of Country Living Magazine together. I would clip out pictures that inspired me to create a beautiful home for my family, and my mom would save them in a manilla envelop. That envelop resides in the secretary desk right next to my side of the bed, and it’s amazing to me that the feel of those aged and torn pictures is the same feel of the home I’ve been crafting the last 10 years outside my hometown.

Whether you’re here looking to for ways to make your life in the home beautiful or functional, or simply stumbled here to figure out what’s for dinner, I am sincerely glad you stopped in. I update my blog weekly with posts that I hope you find to be hopeful and helpful as you discover how to cultivate winsome rhythms of duty and delight in your kitchen and home.
