Simple Pleasure of the Week: Dinner by candlelight

This is a simple pleasure I often forget about. Candlelight makes dinners just a bit more special. There's something about dim light, the smell of the candle wax after the flames have been snuffed out, the dark that surrounds you as you sit around a table. It's such a simple task to light candles, but there's something about the act that signifies your meal as an experience. When I was little, we would have candlelight dinners once in a while, always when my mother cooked something special. It's something I'll never forget, and a simple pleasure to enjoy with a loved one, your entire family, or alone as an act of self-love. Happy Weekend!
