even pizza night was special!
Whether it was a Publix cake on special plates at MawMaw's, holidays decorated to the hilt at Grammie's or a dressy dinner party thrown by Mama and Daddy - I grew up soaking in celebrations! The art of hosting and the care and love that gets poured into it was commonplace.
I got so excited to get dressed up and help!
That feeling of gathering to celebrate life's moments big and small is unmatched. I find such joy in carefully setting a table and crafting an experience for guests. Their smiles and laughter say it all!
of why we love the little things
My love for hosting and celebrating only blossomed as I got older. I was the off-beat 21 year old who threw a 1940's inspired cocktail party at my apartment instead of going downtown - complete with fancy dresses, pearls and Benny Goodman!
It's not about things being perfect - the imperfections are where memories are made - but the heart behind it all. Making others feel special and loved is what it's all about. Nurturing and growing our relationships.
