Spontaneity makes life great. The freedom to invite friends over on a whim, with no plan in mind, is the best! I can’t imagine life without casual, impromptu gatherings. Or friends that visit when the house is wrecked and there’s nothing except leftovers.
Then there are times when I’m looking for something more intentional. A move towards thoughtful conversation. A moment of connection nestled into the regular, hum-drum rhythms of the week.
That’s when I start planning a dinner party.
