Plans for a dinner party

I am very excited to be hosting the first of many dinner parties at my new abode. Hurray! I'm looking forward to a lovely evening of conversation, nostalgia and close friends. My menu currently includes: Gnocchi in a pesto sauce accompanied by a spinach salad. Dessert will be the carrot cake that I just made a few minutes ago. I am debating the appetizer situation. Possibly bruschetta. Maybe just some olives and other antipasto sides. Oh I don't know. I know I'm fretting over these details and that by the end of tomorrow night, when the dishes are put away and the wine bottle is empty, these details probably won't matter. But they are things that will make the evening special. And that is what matters.
