a sweet early christmas surprise

It’s not every day that you walk into your house to see your table fully set with adorable dinnerware.

I guess today was my lucky day!

Unbeknownst to me, a group of ladies from our church blessed me by surprising me with an eight-person setting with some charming Christmas dinnerware. They even collaborated with Jonny to ensure the surprise went off without a hitch.

They left a sweet note with the dishes, explaining that it’s our church’s tradition to give pastor’s wives a pretty set of holiday dishes. They did some digging + discovered my penchant for owls, so they ordered me ‘Holiday Hoot‘ from Rachael Ray’s line. I couldn’t have picked a better set myself! I’ve never had special Christmas dishes before, and these are lovely. I know we’ll use this set for years to come, and no matter where we are, it will always bring sweet memories of our time here.

I’m so thankful to belong to such a sweet + thoughtful community.

Now, who wants to come over for dinner?

About Kayla

I'm a full-time journalist turned work-at-home writer. I'm hitched to a shaggy-haired pastor and we're smitten with two wild + crazy boys: Joseph (3), who joined our family via international adoption, and Asher (1), who came the old-fashioned way. I drink strong coffee, I like pretty things, and I believe there's beauty in the broken. I hope Many Sparrows will encourage you to find worth and live a story worth sharing. When I’m not changing diapers and sweeping Cheerios, I’m tickling the ivory keys of my old school MacBook as a freelance writer and editor. And when I’m not doing that, I’m sneaking into the living room in the wee hours of the night to blog about all of the things. (Primarily faith, family, style, adoption, design, and happy thoughts.)
