Welcome! Welcome!

February 11, 2011 in Life

So here we are! Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to look around. Well, What’cha think? We still are working on the final touches, but what you see here will hopefully be the place you come to when you need to find your voice, a ‘home base’ of sorts. This truly has been a labor of love for us. So we thought it fitting to launch on the day that embodies love. Valentines Day.

Because really, when it comes down to it, this site is about love, my friends. Initially, the love that your restaurant man or woman has for what he/she does. If they are a chef, the emotional investment he/she puts into making food that others devour and crave would be constituted as a commitment to love. Then, when you meet, and begin your relationship, it’s about falling in love, yes? The ups and downs that come with being with your loved one, no matter what they do – bring depth and contrast, discovery and fulfillment to the journey your on. Kinda makes the ride worth while, wouldn’t you say?

Ask yourself, if the journey of your relationship didn’t have its twists and turns, situations to maneuver around, would you be as invested? For so many of us, it’s the ride that really makes seeking the destination THAT much more enjoyable. (ROAD TRIP!) If you’re here, we think it’s safe to say you find excitement in having an exciting life. Being with a Chef, or anyone in this industry is not always easy, we know this. But what does that say about you, that you are here, attempting to find success, and connect with others who are in the same boat as you? To us, it’s the common thread that connects us and makes being successful in this relationship. PERPETUAL DRIVE, PASSION, (and yes) LOVE for ourselves and for the one we’re with.
Look around, what common threads do you see between us all?

We’re here is to recognize these strengths in each other, and more importantly, in ourselves. We’re programmed from a young age to look OUTSIDE of ourselves for the answers. Well, we at Married to a Chef are here to SHOW you that the answers to what brought you here today – LIE WITHIN.

And it is our mission to reconnect with the tools you already have but rarely use (if ever!) To use both the gifts and challenges of being married to (or dating) someone within the restaurant industry to be a platform to jump into the pool that is YOU.

So to end, yes It is Valentines Day. A day when most of the world is out celebrating with the one they love. Red hearts and flowers. (A proverbial 24 hour festival of LOVE!) We ask you to DECLARE that today, this day of love, be the first day that you CHOOSE to redirect that love for your other half, BACK toward that love that you have for yourself; to recognize the strength you have within.

And we’re not going anywhere. We’re going to be there, every step of the way!

Happy Valentines Day!
