This past week, we had our little blogging community over for a meal. Twelve around the table, to be exact.

I love these Teal Birch Tree
Salad Plates
I found at Pier 1. They are so “Sunriver-ish,” with birch trees (we have birch and aspens), which we have on the side of our house.

Our tiny home … we really shouldn’t have. Our kids were all home, we just said goodbye to a guest who was visiting for 3 days, my husband had just walked in the door from traveling, we have a puppy (time, space, chaos – ha). We enjoyed Noble Pig wine, check out their varieties!

Our house is small, and often chaotic. But that didn’t stop us …

Putting worries aside, hospitality is not about perfection.

Friends, I really did let go of my worries about the weekend, and specifically this night in our home (hosting food bloggers is a little intimidating), and decided to go with the flow. (Succulants from our local Whole Foods in Bend, OR. They are only $10 each!)

I often still get a little anxious with hosting, even after all these years. But I’ve done it enough to just let it all fall into place, and really concentrate on my guests.

With so many of us, I asked my friend Kristin and her mom, Barb, and my daughter Abby to help out!

What a relief that was (it’s okay to ask for help!), so I could concentrate on my guests.

I always look forward to the times around our table–to digging a little deeper, talking, laughing, enjoying food, and catching up with people!

The beauty around us, relationships, investing in others.

A very sweet time, my husband Paul updated us on his hard work, something very dear to our hearts.
