There are some families in which dining together means looking at the tops of members heads as their attention is buried in their phones while others are hidden behind newspapers or magazines.
There is a time and a place for those things, and it’s not the dinner table. Dining together is an experience to be savored in much the same way as a good meal is. It’s a time to bond as a unit and to share with each other.
Families that take the time — and we admit that is not always easy — to dine together around a traditional table and chairs are closer and happier. They know what is going on in everyone’s life, and it’s important to make an effort to do this because although they are a family, they also spend plenty of time apart chasing personal interests and goals.
Being together with your loved ones, comfortably seated on your French dining furniture is the perfect recipe for the quality time that we hear being lamented nearly daily in the media.
When the day is done, and the table is set, who better to break bread and share stories with than the ones you love the most?
