A Calming Evening Atmosphere

Saw this quote and had to share, as this is something my mother has practiced for a long time, although usually after dinner. ...The secret to a peaceful evening atmosphere? Candles and music.

"I learned from my mother to always light candles at the dinner table and put music on every evening, whether we had a piece of toast or a banquet fare for our dinner. It calmed down the children and soothed all of our souls. Even when my children were little, they were drawn to the beauty of flickering candles and rich music. Bringing them pleasure also brought me fulfillment." ~ Sally Clarkson
