Hey friends,

This week on Real Talk with Rachael I was honored to sit down with Jen Schmidt of the popular blog, Beauty & Bedlam.

Jen wrote the book “Just Open the Door” and a few of things we chatted about were:

  • How she got started 10 years ago as a blogger (and what she wished she had known)
  • The heart behind her book
  • Serving vs entertaining
  • Practical tips for hospitality, especially for busy women
  • Creative ideas for those who don’t have a large home
  • Ideas for food to serve, especially since so many people have food allergies
  • How to make sure people don’t feel left out

This episode was medicine to my soul since this topic has always been overwhelming to me. I pray it blesses you and takes the pressure off inviting people into your home!
