Joe and I had the pleasure of hosting two wonderful women from Japan this past weekend. We are definitely becoming quite the host masters this is what we have /have had on tap...

September 30-31: Josh and Beth from Orange County
October 11-14: Kiyomi and Mitsui from Japan
October 19: Joe's Mom and Sister
October 24 & 25: My Mom and Dad
October 31-November 3: Niki and Ryan from San Diego

I have to admit that as we were preparing for the month, the number of visitors that we had lined up seemed extremely daunting. I am definitely someone who needs her down time and alone time. But much to my surprise, I have been loving playing host and hostess with Joe!

I think it really helps that Joe is so wonderful with people and genuinely loves having company and showing people a good time. When I am alone, I get so stressed out about making sure that everything goes perfectly, but with Joe by my side I just feel so much more relaxed. I love that he loves entertaining!

So, we had a blast with Kiyomi and Mitsui--two high school music teachers from Japan. We showed them around the city and ate lots of yummy food. It was a blast getting to share our culture and getting to hear their thoughts and see their reactions to everything we did and saw.
