As I went through the apartment getting everything ready for the movers, I was struck by how these wedding gifts have become touchstones of our life together. Wineglasses, serving dishes, a blue-and-white quilt, a coffeemaker—these are the things that have made our house a home. As I held them, I held our past and our future—tangible evidence of moments both ordinary (Sunday morning pancakes on the griddle) and exceptional (toasting a big promotion in the Waterford Champagne flutes). Each of them is infused with the love of those who gave them to us. Eight years ago, we wrote the thank-you notes, heartfelt appreciations for beautiful things. But it has taken time to truly understand how much we have been given.
