Thomas and Ashlee from Extremis by Miami Photographer Tom Clark

Ashlee Anvik and Thomas Wynants think it’s time you get some outdoor furniture.

Thomas, a proud Belgian, met Montana-native Ashlee in the U.S. and soon after they set out to take the Wynants family business to the American market. Extremis designs and manufactures outdoor furniture, or “tools for togetherness.” The company’s approach is “Don’t make anything, unless it is both necessary and useful … and if it is, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful,” a minimalist and eco-friendly philosophy that Tom and myself can fully support.

While we do love our friends, Ashlee and Thomas, we must also love the globalization and interconnectedness taking place every second of every day. The advent of AirBNB made it possible for this connection to happen, combined with our guests ambitious and non-laconic personalities.

They were able to feel at home and a connection soon ensued. We bonded under the umber night sky, eating a dinner of cheeseburgers with a side of vibrant, creamy succotash in the backyard; all while discussing sleek Belgium designed furniture (seriously worth checking out) and of course, world politics.

While people tend to focus their energies on the final product, we must not forget about the initial processes. Here is a photo of three stainless steel mixing bowls, behind them, kitchen utensils; often the first resource in beginning a recipe.

Tom and I believe that it is better to tackle the task in steps rather than an all guns blazing approach. This brings forth better results than the latter. As you can’t make an omelet without cracking an egg, you can’t make passionfruit infused challah bread without pouring in the first teaspoon of yeast.

On social media one usually sees the final product of the meal more so than the actual process. A piece of meat laying on a plate in a deadpan ceremony of iPhone’s cameras and unhinged hashtags. While pages like Tasty and YouTube channels like FoodWishes showcase the processes, why not focus more on the organic steps? The step-by-steps are often the most thrilling and provide a feeling of accomplishment that outshines the quick shot of the $15 smoothie bowl.
