I went to a conference in January and one of the things that I took away from it was that I needed to make ordinary moments in our life special. It's not something I'm really good at but I vowed to get better.
One of the things I do now a almost every meal, especially dinner is lite candles before we eat. We always sit together at the table as a family but It's never been made a special occasion unless it was a holiday.
Now I light candles and turn some of the lights off to make dinner special.
The kids love it and D always asks to blow out the candles when were done.
I hope the kids remember that that mom tried to make uneventful moments eventful.
I actually enjoy it and it seems to settle us down and blocks out the world as we enjoy each other and our food.
I took a few pictures tonight...
The beautiful flowers are from my hubby. Love him tons!!!
