How do you balance your time between hosting duties and your guests when you entertain?

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching.  I love being with family at the holidays; my only complaint is that the time just goes by so quickly.  There never seems to be enough time to get really caught up with those family members who are visiting from out-of-town.  This year I am going to make a conscious effort to spend some quality time with each of our guests and not get so wrapped up in the hosting details.  After all, those dirty dishes will still be there on Friday, right?   Wish me luck!


Take a look at this amazing home for sale.  Located on Jupiter Island and owned by singer Celine Dion, the home sits on 5 and one-half acres.  The views are fantastic.  The entire estate is being sold turn-key with almost all of its contents.


I have been enjoying reading the blog written by Emily Henderson.  She is an interior designer who won HGTV’s Design Star in 2007.  Her design style is really approachable and her writing style is easy going and fun to read.  Check it out here.

And Happy Thanksgiving to all!
