Candlelight   |   February 12, 2016

IMG_3075Several months ago John was inspired to start a new tradition in our home. Why should we make candle lit dinners only for extraordinary occasions when anytime you get to sit together at the table with the ones you love it is a special occasion? So John decided we will sit down to a candle lit dinner more often in the evenings and take time to remember what really is important, who is really important, and instead of fretting over any problems and annoyances of the day it reminds us to be grateful for the real blessing that we got another day together.

IMG_3044Carlie has really gotten into the idea of candles and she reminds us that we need to light our candles if she is sitting at the table and we haven’t lit them yet.  She and Donny also enjoying taking turns with blowing the candles out after the meal is over. At this age, watching the flame disappear with a little breath is just magical to them.
