I recently received a comment from Amy that went like this:
I "reluctantly" entertained this weekend. My house wasn't perfect, but I (and hubby) realized it wasn't about my HOUSE, it was about the COMPANY, and the FRIENDS, and FOOD, and FUN, and suddenly, I felt like hugging you. Thanks for all you share to give us the confidence to reluctantly entertain!!

Do you dream?
What hospitality situation have YOU dreamed of doing, but have yet to make a reality?
Would you take a minute to share your hospitality dreams with me and 4RE readers?
My dream is to have more time to have friends over for dinner. I don't really dream of huge elaborate parties.
I like intimate settings where I'm able to help others get out of isolation and back into connection!
Oh, and Amy, here's a hug from me to you! Would you like to come to dinner?
I love giving hugs, and right now I'm so tickled that Amy pushed past her fears of not having the perfect house. I don't know Amy, but I mean it that I'd have her over for dinner in a heartbeat!
