I’m SO glad my wedding pictures showed up in my mailbox yesterday. I was planning on sharing a cocktail recipe with you today but I’m still tweaking it. I swear I didn’t change my posts around because I was so excited to share pictures with you…I swear! ;)

why register for china

why i registered for china

Like many, I initially scoffed at the idea of registering for china. Why would I want people to spend over $100 on a single place setting? Who uses china in this day and age? Where am I going to put it? (hello tiny apartment) When would I ever use it? It seemed over the top.
