Summer..........I love Summer. I always feel the need to pack everything in. I've been in the mood to entertain..........Lord only knows why.........since my house is a disaster.
Sandy's site 4 Reluctant Entertainers, is the reason. It's her fault that I'm in the mood to invite thousands of people over.........well maybe just 10. She makes it look so easy and I love her style. She actually lives in Oregon too! Boy I tell ya, these NW gals are talented.......must be all the fresh air. (simmer down girls......not that gals in your area aren't talented too) I'll be breathing some of the same fresh air sometime this month as I roam around her the Southern section of Oregon when I visit her neck of the woods.
As I was saying.........I love her style. If she was just a bit closer..........heck if all of you were closer.
This woman has more passion than Danielle Steel. She exudes passion for her life, her husband and her children. In fact, her and her husband co-wrote a book on marriage. She shares a lot of tips throughout her blog on simple ways to connect to your spouse. She also shares SO MANY tips on entertaining. Sandy has come up with her 10 commandments of entertaining. I am actually starting to think I could pull something off..........even with my messy house.
I am loving her outdoor space. I could easily relax there, couldn't you?
Cute and simple ideas to create a welcoming environment is her specialty. She also keeps a budget in mind..........love that.Great recipes all throughout her site. And great ideas on what to serve. That's where I really get stuck......what do you serve people when they come over? Sandy to the rescue!This woman throws SO many get togethers for her children and their friends. Any excuse or reason to throw a party. I hope her children know how lucky they are.........I'm sure they do. I have a feeling she's the fun mom on the block.The real reason I am featuring Sandy is for her red door! You know I go weak in the knees for a red door! Do you have a red door? If so, I want to see it!Summer is the perfect time to gather a few friends and host a party..........or if that word scares you, call it a get together. If you visit the 4 Reluctant Entertainers, you will be more than ready......or you'll at least fool yourself into thinking you may actually be able to pull this off. Go for it!
