Fine China

2013 was Parker's first Christmas. We asked for typical Christmas gifts for her- clothes, formula, diapers and wipes, etc. She got lots of precious toys, as well.  However, there was one Christmas gift that stood out from the rest: a set of fine china. It's the most beautiful set of china I've ever seen. A creamy white porcelain with scalloped edges trimmed in platinum. It's breathtaking.

So who would get a set of China for a baby, you ask? My grandparents. They found the set and loved it and since I already had a set (also from them), they decided to gift it to Parker, an almost-ten-month-old. Now, their logic was sound, albeit a little morbid. They wanted to give it to her for me to save for when she got married. My grandfather was 75 when she was born, and chances are, they might not be around for her wedding (which will be in at least 30 years if her daddy has any say). So for now, my daughter's china sits carefully displayed in the cabinet in my kitchen.

I lov…
