59 Candles, 59 Things – Part Nineteen

Twenty Seventh thing: Candles make me happy.  And relaxed.  The glow of candles makes my home cozy. I love their soft lighting and calming fragrance.

Before retiring, I would frequently come downstairs in the morning, feed the cats, make a cup of tea and then retreat to the living room.  After lighting several candles and then covering up with a soft blanket (to be followed by snuggling cats), it made being up before sunrise peaceful and was a lovely way to start the day. It’s even better now that I’m retired! (just ask the cats)

Spence and I burn candles most evenings, especially in the winter when they provide our only light other than the blazing fireplace.

I love to give candles as gifts as well as receive them.  Just recently, my lifelong BFF gave me this amazing candle for my birthday.

Another favorite of mine is this three wick candle:

Stay tuned for part Twenty as I continue to commemorate my 59th year of life by sharing 59 Things that make me happy!
