This year Earth Hour fell on the weekend I went up to visit Mandi & Julie. It’s kind of one of those things that is kinda silly because people should be spending more quiet nights with out the TV, technology & energy etc but it’s also a reminder that we don’t all do it enough. So although it might be sponsored by big corporations I still like the idea. Obviously, I’d love for everyone to go lights out every night and enjoy some quality time with themselves by candle light with a good book, good friend, good food or fun craft….. but as long as people are thinking about it (even if it’s just a little) that’s a step in the right direction. I spent the entire evening with Mandi & Jay by candle light paired with wine and really thoughtful conversation.. Jay even serenaded us with his guitar (as Rory did for me last year). It was lovely.
