We are still in the process of finding a home that can also serve as a B&B. We are closer to making a decision than ever before, but as dear friend, Cristina, suggested, we need to define ourselves and the kind of B&B we want to offer even before we make a final decision on a home purchase.
“It’s all about the vibe,” she explained. Cristina is a designer and branding consultant at SIGNAL.csk Brand Partners whose creative insights make this journey we are on so much more powerful.
“I want people to feel cared for, yet given the space they need to either heal, connect, or create,” the words fell effortlessly from my mouth.
Since my hope is that parents of college students from Mount Saint Mary College will come to stay, I want them to feel the same welcoming and inclusive community we offer their children at The Mount.
Because I was healed emotionally and spiritually at a B&B, I want to offer the same type of space to others who just need to escape for a while.
And as a writer, I hope to offer a retreat atmosphere for other writers who are in search of a pull-away for their work in progress.
The vibe we want to promote dictates the decor, the organization of space, and even the food served for breakfast. I’m learning so much about how to create a space and experience that can make a difference in the lives of others. I will share with you more about what we’re learning as we move forward.
