There is a scene I love in the movie Father of the Bride (1991 version) where Steve Martin sees his wife walking down the stairs and he's remembering their wedding day. He says, "I'll probably never remember what Nina wore that day, but I'll always remember the way she looked." I love that and I often remember that line when I see our table post-dinner-party:
Ten, fifteen years from now I'll probably forget what we ate. But I'll always remember the good friends and good conversation. And the Guitar Hero that was played afterward.
Eat, drink, and enjoy the moment.
Note: For the record, here is what we ate -
Appetizer: Salami with Cucumbers
Dessert: Kathryn's fantastic Lemon Cake
