Snow Day Bed & Breakfast


mothercookingHave you heard of the latest career trend for moms? It’s pretty shocking. Many women are leaving their jobs to become sole proprietors of a full service Bed & Breakfast, otherwise known as never ending snow days, and I am no exception.

Once the high ranking executive at a marketing firm, I have taken a leave of absence as recommended by Mother Nature, to try my hand in the world of hospitality. I dabbled in hospitality twice before and, believe it or not, my guests are repeat customers! You see they also occupied my first Bed & Breakfast – my womb.

Realizing any business must be fully dedicated to customer service, I have accommodated just about any request. Homemade waffles? Sure, and can I add fresh fruit and vanilla whipped cream to that? After all you will need the strength as you lie helpless on the floor while I shove every part of your body into waterproof clothing, boots, hats, gloves, and scarves only to hear you whine about being hot. But it’s okay, it’s a snow day and you are a kid. Fortunately this B&B is located in a charming Virginia mountainside neighborhood that boasts incredible hills for sledding!

Once you return, the fireplace will be roaring and and a steaming bowl of homemade chicken soup will be waiting for you and the fifteen friends you have decided to bring back with you. Which is really no problem, I mean I do have not one, but two dryers, specifically to keep all of your winter clothing dry before returning to the fabulous outdoor agenda we here at the Mom’s Bed & Breakfast have arranged for you.
