If you know me well enough, you know that I love to entertain!  Always have.  I love a full house, love to try out new recipes, love an excuse to buy fresh flowers.  Once I became a wife, I fell in love with entertaining even more.  Now that I've got my own home and we got all these great serving pieces, it just seems natural.  Add in the fact that I've succumbed to the stereotype that entertaining is just one characteristic of being a good wife (this took no persuading...I gladly took it on :). 

On the weekends when we have friends over, we consider this as an occasion to open a bottle of wine to share over dinner.  We all know I'm a sucker for making (and remembering!) memories, so I started taking a sharpie and writing the names and date down on the cork (Megan & Samuel bring Baby Grant over to visit, Penny Lane's first birthday, date night with the husband, etc).  And I keep all the corks in a glass jug.  I love that I have these memories kept in our home. 

Some of the corks I've kept.

The glass jugs used to keep the corks.
