Deana Mah’s family moved so frequently that she ended up attending 23 different schools between kindergarten and graduating high school. Needless to say, this nomadic lifestyle made it difficult for Deana to ever achieve a genuine sense of place in her life. That is, except for the one place she always felt most comfortable, the safe haven of her grandmother’s kitchen. “The minute I walked in the door, I just felt like I was home,” Deana says. “It was warm and welcoming and there was always something delicious in the kitchen. It was the heart of the home and that was where we all gathered.”
In Deana’s ever-changing world, her grandmother’s house was the one constant she could rely on. It was her comfort zone. And as she grew up, the importance of having somewhere to feel comfortable stuck with Deana. She remembers buying her first home at 24. It was a tiny Mill Village home, but it was hers. The meaning of having her own place to finally call home was not lost on Deana. Fast-forward to present day, and Deana’s desire to maintain that sense of comfort and closeness in her own large, blended family – she and her husband, Gary, have 6 kids between them – is stronger than ever.
