Ladies and gentlemen, we have a dining room table! We also have an amazing cornbread, cranberry and apple stuffing that was definitely worthy of the inaugural meal at our new table.
One of the most exciting things about moving into a house with more space was the prospect of comfortably hosting dinner parties with friends and family. I am not going to say that we ever let a small house stop us from cramming our previous home in the name of a good party, but I anxiously awaited the day to seat friends and family around a large dinner table for a comfy and tasty meal.
As we unpacked our boxes and started to get the lay of our new land, Allen decided that he wanted to build our dining room table. I instantly agreed and immediately began to romanticize how this table would hold and cherish our family history. Our friends and family would gather around this table to share amazing food, beautiful stories, and endless laughter for holidays, birthdays, dinner parties, sleepovers, and more for years and years to come. This table that would proudly be passed down from generation to generation.
I could not wait to get started…. I should clarify…. I could not wait for Allen to get started!
