That'll be us!
the day this photo
was taken stands out in
my mind because it was
so darned much fun.
There were costumes

in formalwear) and

At one point, the
photographer told Larry,
"Act like you like her."
And Larry said, "If we
get any closer, you're
going to have to
leave the room."

Ok, that's what we look like in New Orleans, anyway...
In case you haven't noticed throughout this website and during any phone or email conversations you and I may have had, a sense of humor is mandatory here. Not optional. (Really. See silly woman in plastic tiara below.) Bring your toothbrush. Bring your suitcase. Bring your funny bone. Your sense of humor. Maybe some Witty Repartee. That's about all you'll need.
BREAKFAST: AN EPICUREAN ADVENTURE
There are not many things I'd rather do than cook your breakfast. When we go out for dinner, I'm searching the appetizer and dessert menus for inspiration. I have as much fun looking for recipes to adapt as other people do finding seashells on the beach. It's a treasure hunt! Once, while vacationing in Florida, my sister took me to a charming little Italian coffee shop. I wasn't wearing my reading glasses (yeah ok I'm old, so what) and even at arm's length, I was still trying to make out the little menu. The menu said 'breakfast' and then had the Italian word right next to it. Instead of realizing that 'colazione' was just the translation, I squinted at the menu and said, "Wow! Hey! They have breakfast calzones! I wonder what those are like!" Ok, ok, they didn't have any breakfast calzones, but my sister and I spent the rest of the day coming up with possibilities, and then experimented on our unsuspecting families the following day. That's MY idea of a great vacation. (The winner, by the way, is puff pastry filled with a combination of ricotta, parmesan, fresh basil, diced plum tomatoes, and scrambled eggs, with a parmesan cream sauce on the side.)
My training in the kitchen began about fifteen minutes into B&B ownership. Fourteen years, a collection of two hundred cookbooks (and counting) and lots of fabulous foodie trips later (cooking classes in New Orleans, at the Country Inn Cooking School in Virginia, and behind-the-scenes experiences in several dozen B&Bs across the country) yield a wealth of ideas that we can bring to the table. And, there's that true love of cooking and creating beautiful, delicious food!
My Other Hat is a Tiara.
Thought I was kidding about the tiara, didn't you.
Hey, I'm not Queen of the Kitchen for nothing.
And Wedding Fairygodmother. You oughta see my magic wand. That's right. I have one.
(And yes, that IS a polyester mink apron, eat your heart out.)
If you're planning a wedding, I'm your gal. You
can read all about it on the wedding website (MaggieValleyWeddings.com)
or you can just send me an email message
and I'll answer whatever questions you have about getting married here.
You thought my firstname.lastname@example.org email address was long?
Check this one out:
Good grief. I probably should've thought that through before setting up the website. But still, I do get tickled about being qualified for either.
about the magic wand, either.
How cool is that??!
THE WEDDING FAERIES
Since I call myself the Wedding Fairygodmother, and can't quite create that much magic alone, I really need Wedding Faeries.
Other family team members...
Speaking of back-up faeries, here's my favorite - Jamie! Jamie is a Most Wonderful Daughter-in-Law. (After being corrected many times by folks who tell me, "No, mine is the most wonderful daughter-in-law," I've changed her title from The most to A most, just to keep the peace. Even though I was right. And she is. She's also a great cook and an excellent wedding faerie. And a wonderful daughter-in-law.
Here we are in action: Sandee, Letitia, and Jamie
What would a wonderful daughter-in-law be, without a wonderful son? Here's Nick. Nick was the innkeeper here for three years, giving me a chance to focus on weddings and, well (moms will understand) to hang out with Nick. He's a talented chef and I learned a good deal while he was here. You may be served his Eggs Nicholas during your stay!
Ashley interned with us for several years, and has left us for
college in Tennessee. (Although she does pop in
now and then!) Sarah (pictured on right) and Tony
were guests here, then they were engaged here, and then
they were married here, and then they moved here!
How fun is that, to choose your neighbors? :)
