I don't entertain as often as I would like to. Everyone has a busy life these days; balancing work, school, family, errands, and home projects leaves very little time to have guests over for dinner or to stay for a weekend. And in all honesty, when plans are made and it actually comes down to it, I panic every time I have guests coming over. What if someone notices the dust on the bookshelf? Did I forget to put my shoes away? Is it obvious that I ran around cleaning everything and that I don't actually live this way? At that point it's time to take a deep breath and remind myself that no one is judging me. Guests are friends and family: they're happy to be invited into your home, and they are not judging you.
