A Candlelit Evening!

Hey friends! I am so sorry to have been neglecting you! I have to confess that I have been super busy lately. Tonight I had grand plans of organizing, editing photos for my sister and hopefully doing something crafty to share with you guys! And then I was informed that the power to our house was going to be shut off so that Michael and Dad could run the electrical in the basement. They did not know which breaker ran which cords because the dufus previous owner did not label them properly. So to be safe...they had to shut it all down and work by flashlight. Obviously this meant no computer and no crafting!

I decided to use this as an excuse to light all of our pretty but hardly ever used candles in the living room. I think I may have to do this more often! Isn't it beautiful?
Yeah. Tonight I have nothing fun or creative to share with you. But I am feeling really relaxed. It felt good to slow down and unplug. And to enjoy some quiet time with no technology.
Turn off your computer and your TV. (Ok I know...just shut the laptop. You don't have to turn it off) light some candles and just stop for a minute. You will be glad you did. Promise.


  1. OK, well I am halfway there! I have all the lights off, kids are in bed, hubby is still at work, and I am sitting here on my laptop with all of my candles lit, enjoying a much deserved glass of wine! I could not agree with you more about the mood it sets, and if I turned off my laptop I wouldn't be able to read great blogs like your own!

  2. Really nice sometimes to just kick back and relax. Will be happy for you when your basement is finished and you can put your special touch on it!

  3. I have an award for you on my blog, would love for you to stop by and check it out.

  4. That looks so nice and peaceful! wow, peaceful.

  5. What a peaceful evening! This is a very belated thank you note but we wanted you to know that we appreciate you linking up to Inspiration Friday last week! :-)
