A Warm Welcome

Our book club enjoyed a special treat last week when we were welcomed into a member's home for our fall meeting. Our host, Teri Phillips, is an interior decorator and party planner. Stepping into her beautiful home, several of us said we felt like we were on a mini-vacation.

Teri created such a welcoming atmosphere for our dinner and discussion.

We had a smaller group for this meeting due to scheduling conflicts, but the more intimate dinner was a welcome change of pace. We all lingered around Teri's kitchen table for a relaxed discussion of our fall selection, The Silent Gift by Michael Landon, Jr., and Cindy Kelley.

Thank you, Teri, for giving us such a warm welcome. And just so you know, next time I visit I'm packing an overnight bag!

"To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations -- such is a pleasure beyond compare." -- Kenko Yoshida
