Sticky Situation: Hosting Weekend Guests

I just got off the phone with my brother. He and his wife will be joining my fiancé and I at our newly purchased cottage on the lake. This will be our first time hosting big bro and his bride of three years. They usually host all family gatherings and are amazing at it! My sister-in-law is the Canadian Martha Stewart. I feel overwhelmed and stuck. Where do I start?

Situation délicate : recevoir "miss parfaite" au chalet pour le week-end

| Posted 08.28.2012 | Quebec Art De Vivre

Mon conjoint et moi venons d'acheter un chalet sur le bord d'un lac et la belle-famille sera nos premiers invités. Habituellement, on se retrouve toujours chez eux. Ils sont de merveilleux hôtes!
