From early morning nods and grunts as the sleepy kids drag themselves to the breakfast table, to a mid morning coffee sat in solitude while everyone else is out; to a jam=packed dinner table full of the days stories.

To those moments where tough conversations are had, tears are shed and laughs are shared, homework done, board games played and phones flashing under the table. When kids are reared and the house has once again become quiet, every time you will look at this space, laughter will ring out and bring you right back to all these precious memories.

Cherish your kitchen table.
