Simplicity of living, if deliberately chosen, implies a compassionate approach to life. It means that we are choosing to live our daily lives with some degree of conscious appreciation of the condition of the rest of the world. ~ Duane Elgin

The evenings where Greg and I are able to go at ease with the flow of the night and enjoy each other's company with dinner and drinks are the moments I truly value. In the comfort of our own home and in our sweats, we celebrated Independence Eve with Halibut and Gluten-Free Orzo Salad. Oh, and of course I had to add a candle right? Yet I cannot help but feel allured by its warmth and coziness. =)
