But when my grandparents mentioned that they would be willing to give us their china because they are downsizing, I jumped at the opportunity. My family has been eating Thanksgiving and Christmas meals on that china for more than 40 or 50 years.
Matt and I are now the very proud--and privileged owners--of a full set of china. It includes all sizes of plates and bowls and tea cups and serving things.
I just hope we can overcome our clumsiness and keep the whole set in tact for the next 40 or 50 years!
