More times that I can count, I’ve asked one of my girlfriends what her favorite food is and with a sheepish smile, she’s asked me if coffee counts. Oh yes, and can she choose something sweet, too?
I write this with my favorite blanket thrown over my shoulders. The days are growing colder and darker and now is the perfect time to make our houses feel cozy. We need to light a candle, put on some good music and then bravely invite a friend and her kids in for a simple visit.
Before having 3 kids in five years, I thought that these visits needed to be fancy. Oh, I was so wrong. I can’t do fancy anymore, you guys. But, I can do real and I’ve found that when you keep it simple, you create an atmosphere that makes people feel like they belong.
