Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

I draw inspiration from quotes. Always have. I must have read Bartlet's Book of Quotations from cover to cover when I was in my 20s. I have certainly picked it up more often than I have my dictionary or thesaurus. Quotes give me hope when times are tough and when my spirit is down.

This is proving to be difficult holiday season for reasons I cannot mention right now... I had a sad day yesterday and yesterday as I was tweeting with friends this one most perfect quote popped up on my screen. It was so perfect that I re-tweeted it and posted it to my facebook status. I hope you draw inspiration from it too!

"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
It is about learning to dance in the rain."
Vivian Greene











Happy Black Friday my American Friends... if you're out in the craziness
(and rain here in Connecticut) dress sensibly!

Giving Thanks...
