Few settings are as hospitable as hosting a gathering in nature’s great outdoors. I just love the feeling we get from our wrap-around-deck that let’s us take in the top of all our quaking aspens. The sound the wind makes through them makes me giddy, especially when we’re sharing appetizers on our deck with friends.

But before we get up here, our guests arrive all around the same time with their potluck dish in hand, a bottle of wine in the other—and usually a small gift in a bag hanging on their arm. I certainly don’t expect it, but does make me feel special. I know this might sound strange, but I love these moments because they bring with them this awkward moment when you’re trying to find a free hand to give a hug! These hugs say some of my favorite words,

Come in, put your things down, grab a glass of wine, and let’s visit!
