I celebrated a birthday last week and it didn’t cross my mind to ask for anything other than for Ollie to be home.(which he was!) After some prodding from my husband I finally decided that I would like 3 things for my birthday: Chinese take-out for dinner, a robe, and a new set of simple dishes. (I must be an official adult) We’ve had our current set of everyday dishes for a little over 4 years now and they aren’t holding up like I thought they would. The edges have chipped which makes loading and unloading the dishwasher a cautious process. The thought of new dishes in my new apartment kitchen has gotten me all sorts of excited. I’ve been a long time believer that food looks best on solid white. In fact, I still believe that, but the idea of opening up my cupboards to beautiful colorful dishes sounds delightful. My heart tells me to go for something fun at Anthropologie, but my head tells me to replace my white dishes with something similar from West Elm. If you were in the market for dishes, what would you be drawn to? Until I can make a decision, the great plate debate will continue around here!
