MEMORY KEEPING PROMPT | DINNERWARE


As our good friend, Matthew McConaughey, says, "All white, all white, all white." Nicole is all about neutrals. Her home and closet are filled with them. Open up her cabinets, and there's no exception. The girl loves her whites. 

While the lack of color may seem plain and boring, she's got great stories about them. The china on the top rows were handed down from her Aunt. She tells us their story, and how special they are to her. The cow-shaped creamer dish reminds her of a dinner party she threw. She made breakfast dishes and remembers how much everyone enjoyed watching the milk flow from the cow's mouth. The beer mugs were given to her husband from his dad. Most days, chocolate milk can be found in them, but they're pieces he'll never part with. The copper mugs? She's reminded of one of her good friends who gifted them to her on her wedding day. With every memory, we understand more and more the importance of documenting your story. 

What about you? What does your dinnerware look like? Is there a special story associated with it? Where did you get them? Were they handed down, gifted to you, or even thrifted? Snap a photo or two or three of your dinnerware. Because, friends, your story matters.
