If you live in the Greensboro area and you haven’t been to The Table in Asheboro, you are most definitely missing out. This little farmhouse style bakery is AMAZING. Need more reasons to convince you to go? Well, here are 4 extremely good ones:
1. The Food
The food here is wonderful. The Table serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I mostly go for breakfast, but have been a couple times for dinner as well and have not once be disappointed. My absolute favorite dish is the Grits and Greens. The grits come topped with sauteed turnip greens, ham, and pimento cheese (see picture below).
2. The Decor
If you’ve ever been to my house, then you know that I’m a bit obsessed with farmhouse/rustic type decor. This restaurant is basically what I want my house to look like. The owner has impeccable taste and I could basically hang out there all day.
3. The Market
Many of the decor items are also for sale in their market. Where the owner finds all of the beautiful items she has for sale is a mystery to me.
4. The Coffee
Have I mentioned before that I’m a bit obsessed with Counter Culture Coffee? Thank goodness The Table serves up Counter Culture because very few coffee shops in the Greensboro area do. They also have almond milk and they make their own syrups. The latte pictured below is with almond milk, Counter Culture espresso, and Maple Bourbon syrup (pictured above and also for sale in the market).
The Table just recently appeared in the November issue of Our State Magazine and lots of people seem to be finding out about this hidden gem. Word on the street is that they will be opening a smaller version in downtown Greensboro in 2016. Fingers crossed that this actually happens and soon!!

Well. Here we are, friends. I'm going to be a homeschooling mom for the 2020-2021 school year. This was not an easy decision. Before I had kids I thought I might homeschool them one day. I quickly changed my mind when I became an actual parent. Even with a background in education (elementary school teacher and librarian), I realized that I didn't want to homeschool and would most likely be sending my kids to public school. Then COVID...
Over the past months, I've learned that I have a lot to learn concerning the history of our country and the issues of systemic racism. I've recognized that I, too, have biases that I was unaware of. Waking up to this reality has felt a little like grieving or at least going through the grief process. It hit me hard in the beginning and I was sad and angry. Then I didn't know what to do with the pain of it and was overwhelmed by it all. And now I'm accepting the fact that I have a lot of work to do and that this is a marathon, not a sprint...
"For me, becoming isn't about arriving somewhere and achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end. I became a mother, but I still have a lot to learn from and give to my children. I became a wife, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and make a life with another person. I have become, by certain measures, a person of power, and yet there are moments still when I feel insecure and unheard. It's all a process, steps...
