A busy holiday weekend full of food, love, and the celebration of a new marriage!!

Trying to stay ahead of the chaos of the season by tackling it in small increments.  My holiday cards were done in November,  I have bought a few gifts, have some ideas, and can hopefully pace myself right thru the month.

A few weeks before we hosted J's 2nd birthday at the house, I came across this article emphasizing the difference between entertaining and hospitality.  It really stuck.  In entertaining, the focus tends to be on perfection - setting the perfect table, having a spotless house.  In hospitality, the focus is on making guests feel welcome and comfortable.  As the author breaks it down she says, in entertaining the focus is on one's self.  In hospitality, it is on others.
