Are you ready for mother’s day? Since my mother passed away, I try my best to let all the women in my life know how important they are to me. Somehow, I’m never prepared though. I’m always running around on the Saturday before Mother’s Day trying to find the perfect gift for my mother-in-law, my husband’s grandma and all my sister-in-laws. This year, they made my life easy. They have all told me they want candles, lots of candles. It really is the perfect gift! I use them to help me relax and to take me back to a places that I love: vacations, our garden, my childhood house. My mother made our house smell amazing. She always had candles and fresh flowers. The combination is heaven. I try to keep my house as fresh smelling as my mother’s. Makes me happy to be reminded of her everyday.
