The little things that say welcome

My sister-in-law has a vacation home on a river in Eastern Washington. I adore hanging out with her. She is a wonderful wonderful hostess. She has a room for us away from the others with a bathroom near. There are fresh towels stacked neatly on the bed-a little nod that says welcome. With the fresh linens, a pretty candle and plenty of reading material on the night stands we feel ready to relax and enjoy. Those little things mean so much to me. (The fabulous wine collection and late nights help as well!)
So I take my lessons from her.
