Hubs and I are used to having an “open door policy” when it comes to our home, but that’s not really embraced too much here at college. We love it when people feel comfortable just to pop in for a cuppa or a glass of wine (sometimes even out of a bottle instead of a bag!) and a chat. Granted, sometimes we don’t have time, but we like to think we can make time for our friends where possible.
When I grow up, (ie when we move out of College. lol.) I’m going to really encourage the “pop-in” and hope that people take up the offer. I like that feeling of community and spending quality time with people. I mean, we see people from College every day, but it’s not really quality time, unless we are intentional about it.
I know some people aren’t a fan of other people just dropping in on them, and granted, when you have kids, meal times probably aren’t the best time for a visit 🙂
But all that is ahead of us! We look forward to you popping in to our home some time!
