There must be something in my DNA that is wired to hostess. I just love to plan, prep for and carry out a entertaining a houseful of guests.
The more…the merrier, I say!
Guests are welcome for a brief coffee, a long evening, a weekend….shoot, we have had folks live for us for months at a time!
I learned a lot from my mom about hostessing. Mom modeled how to have a hospitable spirit. She was organized, flexible with the plans changing, focused on folks feeling valued and loved with “their” special meals and she put the wishes of others in front of her own.
You see, there is a big difference between being an “entertainer” in your home and being “hospitable.”
