When we bought our house, we wanted it be a sanctuary for our family but also any guests. We’d also been wondering if we had the capacity to someday open our home as foster parents. I’d be involved in the foster care community for years as a volunteer in the margin hours of raising the boys and building this platform. We knew this would really be our first opportunity to explore foster care realistically as previously we were moving every year or so. We knew this home would be our forever home, and we wanted it to be a place that made strangers and friends alike feel truly welcome.

Since then, we’ve gone to host countless visitors and friends. Practicing hospitality is something that has been engrained in me, and something I hope my boys inherit. Since moving on, we did go on to become foster parents. We know that unlike the friends we invite, foster children can arrive with little more notice than a phone call. Which is why we prioritize keeping our guest bedroom AND guest bathroom clean and inviting at all times.

Welcoming is key. Thoughtful details can calm sweet little nerves in a new place.

I have a cart I snagged on clearance some time ago, I keep it filled with brand new white wash cloths, nice smelling soaps, new toothbrushes and toothpaste, granola bars, fresh fruits. Sometimes I swap those items out with things like: paper/ pencil, books, a soft new blanket, extra towels.

I want them to feel thought of, like their needs will always be met in our home. I love to add extra toilet paper to the bottom of the cart! To keep things cost effective, I love to get a few packages of Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender Scented Tube, 12 Family Rolls and Angel Soft® with Fresh Linen Scented Tube, 12 Family Rolls  at Family Dollar. It really feels like a 2 for 1 for the budget, because you get the quality of Angel So but also a scent experience in your bathroom. They come in  two scents – Lavender and Linen – so that you can choose the scent that works best for your family.

With the scented tubes, guests can even choose which scent like they better! The scent is added to the cardboard tube to give off a light, pleasant scent in the bathroom for you, your family, and guests. They are the ideal balance of softness, strength and value .

Having a choice like this, can give them a small feeling of control. For me, I prefer theAngel Soft® with Fresh Lavender Scented Tube. It’s so inviting to me. It’s funny, my husband isn’t so much a lavender fan, so he would actually choose the Angel Soft® with Fresh Linen Scented Tube. He has always preferred a more classic, crisp scent. Which scent would your prefer, or are you (like us) a house divided?
