AT on... My House is Your House

Pin it button big

We're giving up our apartment over Labor Day weekend. Our cousin is coming into town with two friends and we're going to be out of town. So, our house is becoming their house.

And we're actually looking forward to giving our place up over the long weekend. We really do mean it when we tell him we want him to make himself at home here.

We're having so much fun cooking up nice things to leave in our apartment to make his stay perfect. We're going to set our City Walks: New York deck out where he can find it (with favorite walks tagged). We have special soaps for the bathroom. We're going to put flowers on the bedside table along with a few good books.

We're going to have a snack and drinks ready in the fridge. And we'll have extra bedding out and waiting should they need it. We've already emailed him a personalized map of the neighborhood, showing favorite local eats, trains, and sights.

It's been so fulfilling preparing for him to take over our apartment for a few days. We're starting to wonder if we're actaully a B&B host at heart. What have you done to make visitors more comfortable or what has your host done for you?
