Nathalie and I finally held a housewarming party. In order not to make guests feel obligated to bring a housewarming gift, we called our party a "Wine Tasting and House Touring Event," which created an air of sophistication. I also think it helped to keep out the riff-raff.

Various friends and colleagues showed up at our house, each bringing along a bottle of their favorite wine to share with the others. A jazz mix played in the background, my friends mingled with Nathalie's friends, food was abundant, and Nathalie's 16 month old niece Sophia grabbed everybody's attention with her overflowing cuteness.
