Confessions of an Innkeeper:
My name is Michelle and I love pie. Apple pie, chocolate pie, peanut butter pie, butter beer pie – the options are endless. November is officially the best pie month of the year, when no one considers multiple pieces of multiple varieties of pie to be a bad thing. Elastic waistbands and cozy hoodies allow you the extra room to eat pie with abandon and it’s a beautiful thing. Until January, when the world scrambles into resolution and get healthy mode and your biggest regret becomes the bad life choices you made when celebrating November Pie.
November 22, 1980 provided the long-awaited answer to one of life’s crucial questions; “Who shot J.R.?” That date will forever remind me of the Thanksgiving that my Grandma came to visit and insisted on dinner in front of the tv with complete and utter silence in the house. I didn’t understand the urgency then, but having now lived through many season finale cliffhangers, I totally get it. IBB staff often debates important plot topics of our favorite shows while we work our way through daily housekeeping.
