We are having a big party today because Al is in town and Zach is returning from Mexico. I try so hard not to stress about parties.
Here are my rules:
*Fresh flowers make the house look great, an old trick but it works.
*Cats in the basement. Too many people stress all of them except Rozzy.
*I try to hug each person, look them in the eye and listen. When I host a party, I am so busy I feel like I didn't get to talk to anyone.
*Take lots of photos.
I treasure my childhood family party photos with my aunts and uncles who are now in Heaven.
*Say YES! please, when people ask to help or bring a dish.
*Relax, it is a party ……….
*No fussing about the weather. If it pours, then this tiny house will burst with people for a bit…..
Wish you were all here with us!
