I know we all turn into our mothers eventually. I had one of those moments the other day.
Ben and I went over to Macy’s to work on our registry. While in the china section, which is conveniently also the registry section, I noticed the very very large display of Lenox Holly holiday china. And I wanted to put it on my registry. All of it.
For as long as I can remember, my mom has had what we would call a robust collection of the Lenox Holly china. And it sits in display cabinets all holiday season. And then we use it for Christmas dinner. I think she has a place setting for like 12 or something. AND a setting in the plastic version for my niece. (BTW Mom, I checked. They didn’t have the plastic version so we could pick up a second set.) And now I find myself wanting a set for holiday dinners. Not that I’m going to be hosting any type of Christmas dinner anytime soon….
