Special Occasions

I love candles... especially this time of year because my favorite scents are "harvest" in nature. I.e. pumpkin, nutmeg, spice and cinnamon. I found this one down in the cabinet and lit it up early. By the time Steel's game came online, the whole house smelled like a pumpkin pie. Perfect for the first real day of cooler weather for the season. One of the things I've tried to do as I've gotten older is to not save anything for a "special occasion." Every day is a special occasion and as much as possible, I try to use things, experience things and appreciate things while I have the chance. This is still a work in progress for me. I still have certain candles that I won't burn... but by saving them, they slowly lose their scent and then they'll be no good at all. Candles really remind me of this desired philosophy for me. Like I said... A work in progress.
