I sent my sister a copy of Bella Grace magazine.
She is going through a difficult phase in life, and I just wanted her to have something beautiful to hold. Something that would speak kindness to her.
After placing the order, another magazine caught my eye. I have an intense love for smells, so candles and soaps are a high priority in this beautiful life. I’ve always bought them from local vendors at the Farmer’s Markets, but recently, I’ve had this yearning to try my hand at making them myself. Well….
My excuse for not making them myself was, I would spend a fortune on the container for the candle. They would have to be blingy and beautiful, and it would take forever to decide. When I saw the cover of Willow and Sage my excuse was no longer valid.
It’s literally a hulled out lemon half!
In Texas we can buy lemons for .25 cents each!
Mr. Smith taught me about excuses. All of the reasons I gave him for not trying my hand at candle making were merely excuses. He encourages me to do anything that makes my heart happy. He knows if I’m happy, the people around me will be too.
My daughter loves the way our home smells. She walked in yesterday and yelled, “This house smells like fall!” I just smiled, and thought, “Just you wait darling…Just you wait. Willow and Sage is on the way.” They have a magazine for making soap too.
