My brother and his girlfriend gave me this candle before my move to CO. I'm not sure how much it smells like my home state of PA, but it smells good nonetheless, and the sentiment is priceless.

I love all kinds of scents-candles, lotions, perfume, all the good smelling things-but my favorite is the sweet cheeks on my dogs. It is the best for smooching and sniffing. If you are a dog lover you totally know what I‘m talking about. #bedhairdontcare #dogsoflitsy #mork #gratitude30 #scent
Gleeps! 😳😳 I‘m falling behind on my #Gratitude30 posts! Yesterday was devoted to #Scent, and though I have a discriminating sense of smell (I can name almost anything, even when blindfolded!), I cannot be around perfumey scents. But nature‘s perfume—that‘s another story altogether! I gave this lily bulb to a friend almost 20 years ago, and it still survives! This is pic he took last spring to show me how it persists. Lovely scent!
While my candle collection comes nowhere near my book collection, I have quite a lot of candles. Floral scents really bother me, so my go to candle #Scent tends to be some sort of food. My house often smells like baking! #Gratitude30
Pictured are two candles recently gifted to me. Love the scent of both of these!
My oldest son was a varsity wrestler in high school. If you've ever lived with a wrestler, you know exactly how horrible the shoes, the other equipment--and the wrestler himself-- smelled after an intense workout. We had to roll down the car windows (in the winter!) on the way home from the gym. Today, though, he's graduated and flying helicopters in the Marines. It's funny how you can miss even a bad #scent when it's gone.
