It has been so busy around here this past week. Actually it hasn't seemed to let up much since we got back from Anaheim, CA, where we attneded the Professional Association of Inkeepers International Conference.
We had a lot of fun meeting fellow innkeepers and learning how to be even better at what we do. We even carved out some time to visit with Mickey and his crew. One of the big highlights was learing that we were accepted as members in Select Registry. This is an organization that represents the top 4oo or so very best bed & breakfasts in all of North America. Not only were we accepted, we are the FIRST and ONLY B&B to be selected in the city of Baltimore! It was my goal when we became the owners of our inn to become a member within three years, and we did it in 9 months! Yay for us!
We had plenty of preparations to do for the Women's Board of the Johns Hopkins Hospital's Great Taste '08. the subtitle was Luxury Living & Hidden Treasures, A Tour of Homes in Baltimor's Inner Harbor, Federal Hill & Otterbein.
We were very happy and proud to be a part of this fun event on Thursday, though having between 250 and 300 women tour our place and nibble on cookies and sip on our strawberry basil lemonade was a bit overwhelming. Many of these fine women took a copy of the Select Registry Guide Book with them as our gift.
This weekend we are thrilled to be hosting the entire inn full of family members of a beautiful couple who are exchaning their wedding vows on Sunday.
Thanks for reading my first post and thanks to all of the women (and a few gentlemen) that attended the home tour!
