A little over a year ago when we moved from Corpus to Victoria, I happened upon a wonderful blog that has kept me coming back each week. It is called 4 Reluctant Entertainers: Real Entertaining for Real People and I love it! She is celebrating her 300th post this week.
I have enjoyed learning so much from Sandy who is an expert in everything involving entertaining, yet when you read her blog she is just a normal girl using simple ideas to make your home an open and inviting place for others to come and be blessed.
I have hesitated so much to entertain over the last year of downsizing into a smaller home now that we are back in Corpus. I only have family and very close girlfriends into my home for entertaining. Sandy has helped me so much in affirming that it doesn't matter your surroundings or the foods on the menu, people will appreciate your heart.
My blog was started about three years ago for a personal family journal, but also to encourage all you "pink carnation" types out there to be the girl God called called you to be, no matter the circumstances of life, your talents or the lies you've believed in your past- to use the gifts God has given you. Sandy helps remind me of that everytime I go by.
