Dessa's Cranberries & Pine threw strong and jolly. Plump and tart cranberries simmering on the stove with a couple cinnamon sticks and an evergreen swag as the table centerpiece. Sugared spruce is paired with spiced cranberry wonderfully. Repurchase. I need to remember this one for next year.
Lasting Scent Candles Sugar Berry Clove melted in my bedroom for several hours yesterday with a strong throw and a delicious scent. A cinnamon and clove and nutmeg spice bonanza with tart and sweet cranberries to balance the spice. I really enjoy the authenticity of the cranberries. Not candy like or artificial in any way. Repurchase and already did.
Lasting Scent Candles Holiday Splendor threw medium to medium-strong in the large living area and kitchen. A classic Christmas scent of spiced apples and balsam. I am pretty sure a lot of vendors carry this type of traditional holiday scent. I always find these comforting. Repurchase.
I have been sick the past several days. Nothing too major. Sore throat, coughing, runny nose, the usual suspects. But add it to holiday stressors and monthly full moon woes and I am a right basket case. We celebrated Christmas with Adam's parents and aunt this past weekend and it was really nice and low key. However, last night was my Pop-Pop's side of the family party and we were hosting and I was just not feeling well. I think I had an anxiety attack about an hour before and shut myself away and had a good bawl. All I craved were my two rice filled heating pads, Advil, pj's, and my bed. But I had a tiny house full of people and no where to run. I had two sweet cousins who reached out and helped me when they could see I was faltering. More and more I see that some amazing friends can be found in family. In the end it all worked out. Today I will put on some Christmas music, stay in my pj's, and wrap the rest of the gifts. Read some of my book. Get some blogging done. Keep the Advil close to hand.
What are you doing this week? Are you good at putting on a hostess face when ill? Or do you fail miserably like me?
