Having a nice meal after a long work day is good for the soul. Whether that meal involves ordering take-out or cooking, sitting and enjoying the moment and reflecting on the day is a ritual I know so many of us enjoy immensely. But setting the table can also be an added stress and take time. If I know we are going to be home a tad later than usual, I like to quickly set the table before we head out the door in the morning. I find it energizes me a bit, thinking of the relaxing supper that awaits when we get back home. All that is left to do when we return is to light the candles and away we go.
