Candle Swap Success Story!

I recently participated in my first online swap even hosted by Dawn's Disaster and Unorganized Chaos.  It was a candle swap! How cool is that! Candles are awesome. I remember when I was a kid my mom had all these candles she would never light because they were just too pretty. I'm kind of the opposite when it comes to candles. I like to use and abuse them (when I was a young child I used to eat them; sorry, Mom), so they never last very long.

I also really liked the idea of connecting with another blogger over a mutual gift exchange. My partner in the exchange was Jaime with Mom's Test Kitchen.

Honestly, my first thought on getting paired with Jaime was, isn't there a celebrity chef with this name. Yeah, but it is a British guy, not a sweet southern lady, so not the same person . . .I think. . .However, Jaime is a bit of a Chef in her own right so that works out. You should check out all the recipes she has on her blog. So that is awesome too and now I have so many new things to make for dinner!

Hmm. . .so, awesome recipes and a new blogger friend. There was something else I was going to talk about here . . .what was it. . .Oh! Candles!

My gorgeous new happy candle has been trying to find a proper home. I had it in the middle of my dining room table for awhile then it moved to my happy window sill where I keep things that make me happy, and it is now on my nightstand.

Pretty

Look at her glow!
You know they have videos on youtube totally devoted to watching candles burn. I guess for people who are extremely pyrophobic but still enjoy candlelight.

So thank you, Jaime, for my new candle!
