It was a simple fare. I made white bean chili in the crock part early in the day,
set the table, and went on with what else I had to do that day.
I found an old garland of berries that I wound around my favorite canning jars filled with votives.
Simple, comfortable with a touch of elegance.
Earlier in the day I took a break to do a mirror image ... still enjoying our new "on trial but maybe staying" dining room. The antique mirror has been handed down in our family through many generations.
Candlelight, no matter how simple, seems to draw us in. We stayed around the table for hours, laughing, talking, sharing concerns, and lastly, praying together. A good time, and the clean-up was easy!
