Evenings in Autumn are my favourite times. After a comforting warm meal it’s a time to wind down, share thoughts about our day with family and take time for ourselves. Welcome to my cozy Autumn Evening routine. I hope you’re all enjoying the season. At sun down I dim the lights and light candles. I…
