One Section of the Buffet...

Whenever I take down our holiday decorations, I get the chance to take a good long look at all of the treasures on the ledge of my buffet.  In one corner alone, I can see my brand spanking new gluttony dictionary,  a graceful grappa bottle I brought home from Italy, the bottle from a Micky's Leif and I split in our first Chicago apartment eighteen years ago (message in a bottle style: it contains all of the letters Emma mailed us from camp-), the hay bouquet from the dish "Chicken Thigh, Liver, Truffle and Hay" we enjoyed at One Sister Underground housed in a vase I took from my grandma's house that is labeled in her distinctive handwriting, "From Ireland Trip," and the  corner of the photo of my mom walking Emma down the aisle at my brother's wedding. Our buffet ledge is one of my favorite things in our whole house.
