Simple Pleasure - Lighting my Candle

simple pleasure
Happy Thursday to everyone, today I am participating in Simple Pleasures with Dayle @ A Collection of This and That. I hope you will  check out the simple pleasures that others are sharing.

candle Today my Simple Pleasure is my Pumpkin Spice Candle burning in my kitchen/family room. The aromas stemming from it feel the senses with warmth and coziness.
I love the way the candle changes the mood in the house, as well as mine,something as simple as a candle can slow me.
So what is your simple pleasure today?

  1. I too love the smells of candles this time of year. Soothing I guess is the word! Joining you at Dayle's.

  2. I enjoy candles to Cindy, especially in the fall and Christmas. And you are so right, they do make us slow down and relax. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Scented candles are a big emotional boost to me. I like them to reflect the season. In the fall, I pull out pumpkin spice too!! In fact, I was noticing that my trusty one is getting a little short.

    I love the smell, and I stand in COMPLETE agreement that it's a simple pleasure.

    (Cinnamon and spice is pretty good too)
