Especially in the summer, so this is the night I tried to stop it.
It was a combination of uneventful birthdays and too many anniversaries that got ignored, that made me what to really remember this year,
I spent a few days collecting my favourite vintage glasses and plates, wanting every moment to be enchanting and memorable.
Added hundreds of sparkling lights, and lots of creamy white candles.
Fresh apple branches and flowers.
Threw in a few of my favourite people.
Lots of amazing food.
A small rain storm to get people excited.
And suddenly time stood still.
It was in the silly moments that happen when people who don’t know each other find common ground, or when old friends are reunited. I realized that it takes a little time and commitment to make time stand still. It doesn’t have to be a fancy party, just a reminder or a plan to change up your mundane routine, and try something new.
For me, it’s lots of little things that come together to make a memory that seems to stop time.
