Everyday Contentment - #3



Take a moment to embrace contentment, to learn to love the everyday things that we tend to overlook or take for granted. 

Candles!

I have a crazy love for candles in any shape, size, color, texture, scent.

Candles

My house is littered with candles, every room has at least one (except for the kids bedrooms).

It's something so simple, something that is so easily overlooked, but yet, I find such contentment in lighting a candle.

Candles

In sitting near the warm glow.  

It brings peace to my heart in a way.

So true! I love evenings only lit by candle light. It doesn't happen to often here now with little ones, but when they are asleep, it's one of my favorite things to do. I'm actually planning on getting a few candles for my outside are today.
