One of my favorite things to do when family and friends arrive at our home, is to greet them with "benvenuto" (meaning welcome in Italian). Our intentions are to make people feel good, and as a Host and Hostess, that is the start of our plan.
We have a quote (author unknown) that is stenciled at the top of one of our living room walls. You may need to enlargen the picture. I took the photo in December, so the lighting in the house was different. The quote does not dominate the room, yet it is pronounced enough to see, and promotes lively conversation. We sincerely mean the feelings that are behind the words. We love when people stay, laugh, eat, enjoy the music, and leave with some wrapped food. We want our guests to feel welcome and warm inside. It is what we do.
Happy Easter and Happy Passover to you. For those of you who celebrate neither, I wish you a beautiful day!
