On Being a Houseguest

As I traveled this year for the CYOP Road Trip, I began to realize the joy involved in being a good houseguest.

Before I get to that, can I make a confession? We don't often have houseguests in our space. Our home is open-concept almost to a fault. There is zero privacy. And while that works for me and my husband (and the occasional solo guest for short stays) just fine, it can make things a little more difficult when we have couples stay or guests who need a place to crash for longer than a few days. It also means I am completely in awe of those who have houseguests on a regular basis. 

So, when friends I'd never met in real life, family members and near strangers offered up a place to stay during my travels, I knew I wanted to try and be the best possible houseguest I could be.

I learned a few things along the way and I'm thrilled to be over on Clementine Daily this week to share my top five suggestions for being a solid houseguest—regardless of the circumstances surrounding any particular visit. As the holidays approach, I plan on using my own tips a time or two as well!
