Welcome to the Chino House!
My name is Alison and the days that are marked vacation on my calendar in bright colored Sharpie are my favorite.
But I really try to enjoy all the days.
I write about the weeks I get to spend wandering the world, the yummy treats I turn out in my kitchen and the books I curl up with at night. Along the way, sometimes I talk about my husband, my kids and their books, my faith, or even occasionally, fashion.
I love Jesus. I love my family. And I love to be outside.
A few things that are heaven to me: campfires, my camp chair, crisp mountain air, my zero degree sleeping bag, yoga, the deck of a cruise ship, fresh greens, homemade bread, a good book and a little bit of quiet, my kitchen, my mother’s kitchen, cast iron, freshly shelled pecans and the sound of kids laughing and playing outside.
