Every fall I look for a nice autumnal scented candle to get me in the mood for the season. This year, I perused the Yankee Candle catalog, trying to decide which scent might be the perfect one. Sometimes its hard to tell from the clever names they give them, like "Red Apple Wreath" and "Red Berry and Cider", and I'm never sure until I get them whether I'll be happy with the choice. This year I really hit the jackpot with a candle called "Autumn Wreath". It's perfect. When I get in the house in the afternoon I light it up and in no time at all the house is filled with the most glorious aroma that says "home sweet home" to me. It's just the way I want my house to smell when someone walks in the back door - like coming in to a home where there is love and good food in abundance! This one does the trick.
Fortunately, I went beyond my better judgement this year and I bought two of them. It's a risky thing to do because if I wasn't pleased with it I would have had to give the second one away, but now I know I'm set until the holidays. Who'd 'a tho't that t simple thing like a candle would bring so much joy anyway? Sometimes it truly is the simple things in life that mean the most.
