One thing I’ve learned to love about living in Richmond: it is very centrally located.
Another thing: we have a guest bedroom.
Between the two, a third: company.
Love, love, love company.
Let me take you on a tour of our establishment. In case you happen to be passing through Richmond (it is very centrally located–you can pass through it on your way to almost anywhere, did I mention that?).
If you’re the first to reserve, you’ll be staying here (unless you are superceded by our parents):
This is a very comfortable place to stay. We know. We tried it out. Pillow top mattress courtesy of our pastor and his wife. Not to mention all the furniture. We have an extremely generous pastor.
The quilt is my favorite thing in the room, except for the wedding pictures and the tea sets. An Indonesian woman made it. Her family cut her off when she converted to Christianity. This is how she supports herself. Her work is incredible.
Let me know if you want one. They are extremely reasonably priced. Like $130.
The room comes with its own bathroom just down the hall. You only have to share if we are double booked.
(This is this week’s menu. Seeing as it’s a holiday weekend, it’s looking like a very good week for company. A college friend and her husband are flying in tomorrow from Flagstaff and staying until Sunday. Anna and Nathaniel will be here Saturday and Sunday. Tim’s parents might come Sunday and Monday. All of Tim’s local extended family is scheduled for supper on Thursday. Sunday afternoon is a church wide picnic. Wheeeeeeeeeeee!)
So, if you are passing through Richmond (or planning a trip here), I just want to say this: please come see us. We would love, love, love to have you!!
