I love this time of year because it means Thanksgiving, Christmas and elongated visits to my parents’ house. I sleep better, eat better, and yes, even wash better at my parents‘ house. Why? Because my mother makes every guest feel at home, from the living room to the dining room to the bathroom! Yes, even the bathroom. My mother doesn’t have a fancy bathroom, but she has a colorful one that is warm, inviting ,and ready for use. I love that my mother has a frustrated interior designer in her because that means I always get her cast-offs whenever she decides to make a theme change. When I come to visit she sends me home with towel and mat sets that have been replaced by the latest and greatest sets that match her current decorating vision. I win when I stay there and I win when I don’t. Let’s hear it for mom! Woo hoo!
