Monday Musings - Candlelight

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.  ~Chinese Proverb

I love candlelight. I love the soft glow it creates. I love the flickering flames and the alluring shadows. I especially love dining by candlelight. It creates a wonderful atmosphere, it makes the food look more delicious and it makes people look prettier. I think wine even tastes better by candlelight.

Wishing you all a wonderful week.

Till next time
