“Reluctant” is a great way to describe my attitude about entertaining. I could probably use this book.

I would simply love to have this book. You’d think at my age I would be able to “entertain” – but I am still a bit of a Nervous Nellie about it. I can’t wait to read it!

This would be a nice one to have, to get past that first step towards beginning to entertain.

Reply

Mary January 18, 2013 at 3:03 pm

What a great title!! Though I’d love to give this to a few friends, I wouldn’t want them to be insulted. Very few people entertain in my circle of friends and I’m not sure why, though at least one blames it on her husband not being social.
Looking forward to reading and applying the advice!
