I love the idea of a B&B. A cozy cottage in a remote locale known for its antique shops, writer's colonies, and artisan chocolatiers. Charming out the wazoo! But then you are seated at breakfast with a chatty couple who cling to you like the locally pulled salt water taffy in your back molar. Frankly, I prefer my charming to warmly welcome and quietly invite me to sit a spell and just be and be. Salon Delphinium creates that atmosphere for me and I often daydream about charging my boarders (aka, my children) an outrageous rate for bed and breakfast.
