Is it weird how excited I am to finally have my fine china?
Well, I am!
I think it is partly to do with having it at one time, but keeping it stored in my in-laws house; then returning it in New Jersey so we wouldn't have to move it; and now finally going back to purchase it since our store credit was burning a hole in my pocket!
It has been a long process, but well worth it. Now that the dishes are washed and put away, I can now think about having a dinner party. I don't know how many people are even interested in one, but I have always looked forward to having one with close friends and/or family. The idea of sitting around the table, relaxed, with good conversation, food, and a beautiful setting has always appealed to me. I love cooking and trying new recipes, so sharing that love just naturally follows.
