In the evenings, I like to change the mood of our house, to quiet things a bit and help everyone begin to relax.
I rarely use over head lighting anyway, but in the evenings I never do - unless there are games being played. I like to turn end table lamps on, have my accent lighting on, and light my candles and oil lamps.
It makes the sink area an appealing space.
The atmosphere becomes relaxed - last night we were watching a tv series online - not sure if we are going to like it or not but the premise is intriguing. One day the power is on, the next is it off, for over 15 years. But it seems as if the situation was man made and could be reversed.
I love making my home a warm, relaxing place for my family. A place to gather after our busy, work filled days, to provide a place of shelter, a place where they have the security of knowing that they are loved and delighted in and wanted.
This morning it is raining, and I have girls to take to work, and some product information to take to our marketing guy who is doing amazing things with our website. If you want to be able to see the difference go to www.fabfashionpa.com to see the way we inherited the site. Then in about a week and a half we should be ready to launch the new site. It is so different and amazing! I am excited about it!
Do you take the time to prepare for the evening, slowing things down, changing the atmosphere in your home? I'd love to hear what you do.
