Hospitality is an important piece of life that we should all be savoring, and teaching our kids about.
A month ago I hosted a small dinner party with 7 adults when, just when I thought things were going “perfectly,” the fire alarm went off. You should have seen my husband and me rushing around, fanning the smoke detector, opening every window and door, yelling at the dog … yes! I let something burn in the oven. I looked up and saw my guests’ faces staring at me; it was rather humorous! We went on to enjoy an incredible evening, but I will admit, it did take me out of my “entertaining mode,” for a short amount of time.
Oh, and Tsh just announced all of the contributors to Simple Mom blog for 2012. Check out this post on who the writer’s would invite to “their ultimate dinner party.”
