I love hosting guests in our home. Before moving 'to the country' we lived in a small 2 bedroom house that made entertaining quite a challenge. I love being able to give guests their own space in our new home, and we've had so many friends and family members come visit. I feel so blessed!
I keep a file called "Guest Preferences", so I can remember the little things that make individual visitors feel welcome. Then I can remember extra things to pick up at the store, or cooking preferences, or favorite places to visit during their stay.
Here is a sampling of the notes:
Gramma & Papa
Cinnamon raisin bagels
No pesto, seafood or super-spicy foods
Chocolate raspberry or Amaretto coffee
Jake & Jenn
No chicken on bones
Mama B & Papa Tom
Low sugar, low vitamin K
Holly & Jay
Vegetarian (chicken only)
Pete & Joy
Chocolate chip cookies
