Our family's latest new adventure? Eating dinner by candlelight for an entire week! Prior to this week, we had eaten only 1-2 (at most) meals by candlelight at home...and that was before Squishy came onto the scene.
This week's experiment received an overall thumbs up (although hubby said we need to light a few more candles, because he couldn't always see what he was eating!). Dining by candlelight was a lovely and simple way to change the pace of our evening meal. We slowed down, savored the moments, lingered after eating...instead of moving quickly to cleaning-up tasks or bedtime routines.
Now that our week is up, we're going to shoot for eating by candlelight once a week. Just 'cause we can. :)
As for Squishy, his table manners don't necessarily match the ambiance of eating by candlelight! But somehow we don't mind.
