My perfect time to relax with a candle is on a cool breeze summer night. Being outdoors in my backyard sitting on my patio chair with my feet up on the other chair. Drinking a tall glass of ice tea or lemonade. Having my favorite candle on the table while enjoying looking up at the billions of twinkling stars. Feeling the fresh air cooling my body down from the hot summer day.
When I go to a store I would make the point to stop and smell the of candles on display. When I am tempted to buy a candle it would be hard for me to just pick one. I could spend hours just smelling all the candles. I love getting lost with all the smells. My kids would get tired of waiting for me that they would direct to where we need to go instead of me seeing and smelling all the candles. Sometimes they would let me go to the store by myself which made me happy because that would give more time to smell the candles.
