Last Friday, just before the party, I went outside to light the votive candles that were lining our front walk to welcome the guests. I took my camera with me to see if I could capture a good picture of them. (I couldn’t.) But as I turned to go in, I was struck with how cozy the house looked…clean and nicely lit…looking its party best.
And then I realized that I wasn’t the only one doing the looking.
