My son knows of two things that he can never go wrong with when buying me gifts for the holidays, or birthdays, or just for me being the best mom. (Ok I went too far with that last one.)

Candles and Lipton’s Island Mango and Peach tea are at the top of the list. I got several of both this year. I realize these are not big ticket items, but they are things I use a lot.  So practical, yes, but who said gifts can’t be pratical .

When I read Ailsa’s challenge this week, I immediately thought of this photo taken a few days ago. Maybe because it was fresh in my mind. Maybe because I just liked it a lot. Maybe because most of the candles came from my son. I guess I have multiple reasons for chosing it.

Take a look, then just for a minute, close your eyes, smile, and breathe.
