I have always loved candles. Growing up, my family frequently ate dinner by candlelight at the table, fooling me into thinking that romantic ambiance is the norm for dinnertime. And when I was little I loved going around the house lighting candles when the power went out; it made me feel like we were in Little House on the Prairie or something like that. Now, I mainly light candles during bedtime. The one I have now (and my favorite) is this French Lavender Yankee Candle. Unfortunately the scent has been discontinued, but this weekend I found several of them at T.J. Maxx! I was tempted to buy them all to stockpile them, but I stopped myself at two. I light it an hour before I go to sleep, and read my book while enjoying the soothing lavender smell. I swear that it helps me fall asleep, and the scent lingers for hours, leaving my entire bedroom smelling just heavenly. Maybe this post will convince Yankee Candle to bring this scent back!

P.S. For those of you who are allergic to scented candles, or simply don't like them, I suggest trying these battery-operated candles. Their flickering is quite realistic, and you can still get that "mood lighting" you're looking for. Plus, since there's no wax to actually burn, these candles will last forever!
