This week I’m making a Costco run to stock on paper products, plates, plastic cups and cutlery. 🍽 One of my goals for 2020 is to set myself up to say Yes to last minute hospitality.
Friends, this is not my default. I want to have a few days advance notice and time to vacuum before company shows up. But that is usually not real life, especially with a toddler and a baby. So one way I hope to be prepared is to keep a good stock of paper plates, napkins, a new good-smelling candle, and even chips and salsa in the pantry. With all of that within reach, I think I’ll be much more prone to say, “Sure! Come on over!” instead of, “Of shoot, I don’t think today will work.” 😔

What about you? What do you do to set yourself up for success in these areas?
