Me as a garden nymph at a home scenting event, 2014
I’m not willing to accept that it’s almost fall, because my internal calendar remains convinced that it’s still April 2020. Or maybe April 2025; who knows!

You know by now that I’m a bit of a candle obsessive; even when it’s hot out, I have candles burning. Beyond being something that’s always been a personal habit of mine, it’s just kind of necessary when your home is filled with Child and Dog smells (yummmm).
