Keep the Cocktails Simple, Check Your Instagram Feed, Outsource, Crash Clean Only The Rooms That Matter, Have a Few Fallback Conversation Starters Up Your Sleeve, Do Whatever You Can Ahead of Time, and (maybe most important) Remember: No One is Expecting You To Be Jackie Kennedy.

I’m always surprised by how I love every article you write. Somehow it’s always fresh and I really like your writing style. I don’t tend to cook from cookbooks often but I’ve bought both of yours just to read! I think I own about 8 cookbooks total so that’s kind of a big deal 😉
