I have been rather absent from my writing lately, but with good reason. I mean, we are decorating fools these days! Busy hanging garland, busy hanging greens, busy hanging, hanging, and more hanging!!! The house looks gorgeous and I'm rather excited to open it up for all to see. It's been a lot of work and alot of fun. I'll have lots of pictures to share as soon as the tour is officially over, so even though things may be slow around here in the next few days, I'll pick back up next week with lots of new posts...and pictures!
But for today I wanted to do something special for one of my readers and friends.
One of my good friends from the Marine Corps, Brittany, emailed me a few days ago and asked if I'd be interested in giving away one of her new scentsy items. She's trying to build her business, so of course I obliged!
If you havent heard of scentsy, it's like the newest, greatest business. Compare it to PartyLite or Pampered Chef. It's a huge craze right now! Visit www.scentsy.com to find out more!
So here's what you need to do for a chance to win a great prize:
Simply leave a comment telling me what you're favorite "memory smell" is and why.
For instance, I can smell this certain body spritz and immediately flash back to my first pregnancy with Nora. Daniel can wear a certain cologne and I feel like the first night he kissed my forehead. I can smell a candle and remember a certain meal that I made or the smell of a restaurant that haunts me because of an embarrassing situation. I can smell my Nanny's sweatshirt and it stops time. I literally jump back into her embrace.
My favorite holiday smell is anything warm, like apple pie or baked cookies. Although last year my friend Janene bought me a candle called, "sleigh bells" and it's delicious!
I will announce the winner this Thursday, December 3rd. You have 3 days, so think about your favorite smell and do share! Can't wait to hear from you!
