My love of photography began somewhere back in high school with a Kodak 110 camera. It later evolved to newer cameras and cell phone cameras, as my passion for sharing visual images grew. I sometimes wonder if I inherited “the photography gene” from my father. He was known to enjoy playing with the camera and even developed his own film, back in the late 50’s.
Today’s image was taken just prior to reading the Photography 101 assignment for the day. So I was tickled when I saw the photo I already took would work for our warmth assignment! You see, I am an Airbnb host, and I’m someone who is always on the lookout for ways to make my guests feel special and warm. Some of the ways I do that are:
- Doing my best to greet each guest, and give them a brief tour of my home. During that time I often find out things about them, that help me know good things to suggest to make their stay special.
- I also found these really cool glasses at Cost Plus World Market. They have chalk paint on them, which allows me to personalize them for each guest. This not only makes them feel welcome, but it also encourages them to be responsible for their glass, which is eco-friendly.
- I found these very snuggly cotton robes at IKEA that allow guests to feel warm and pampered after their bath or shower.
- I subscribed to Plum Deluxe’s tea of the month club, where each month I get a unique hand-crafted organic tea sent to me to share with my guests. Yesterday I went to my mailbox to see we got Black Magic: Vanilla Rose Tea…talk about yummy!
I think it’s the little touches that go a long way, and personal touches, are icing on the cake!
What is one way you wowed someone and made them feel warm inside?
