Kim’s Whims

Someone has to do the dirty work!

It should be you—not your guests—

so make sure you have extra garbage bags,

toilet paper and tissues on hand

at your home or venue.


Take a relaxing bath and get

dressed early so that you will have

a few extra minutes to sit and relax

before your guests arrive.
