Favorite Things Friday...

Today is Friday once again so I thought I'd share my favoite SMELLS with you today:
Lavender is one of my top five favorite smells. I love it so much. In fact, my favorite Glade plug-in scent is Laveder Vaniilla. I also think lavender is beautiful out in nature. I think life would be very sad without the beautiful smell of lavender. This particular smell also makes me feel so clean and refreshed.
Vanilla is my very favorite smell in the world. I love it to pieces. I especially love smelling it in baked goods. My mom makes a delicious dessert that my family devours every time she bakes it. Her Sour Cream Pound Cake has vanilla in it and I love how it smells, but I think I love how the uncooked batter tastes even more! The smell of vanilla just makes me giddy. I thouroughly enjoy this smell during all seasons, but especially during the holidays. It reminds me what home smells like. I guess that is because it is also my mom's favorite scent that she places near the front door. Smelling vanilla is heavenly.
Cinnamon smells delightful to me as well, especially in the fall when temperatures are changing and leaves start turning glorious colors. I adore to wake up and smell cinnamon. I feel warmly hugged when I eat or drink anything with this spice in it. Another thing I really enjoy is Cinnamon toast in the mornings. I could smell cinnamon all day long and be so happy and contented.
I also really enjoy the Bird of Paradise scent from Circle E candles. I could burn that scent around the clock. So there you go. What are some of your favorite smells? I hope your Friday is wonderful.

Okay Lauren, you are right, we are kindred spirits! My favorite candle of ALL times is Birds of Paradise. I LOVE when I walk in my house and can smell it. I wish it ALWAYS smelled that way! :) Though, if I know company is on the way, I will always try to light it up for a little bit before...if I have one! I also love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla! I love when it is fall and I have cinnamon smells coming from the in pumpkin bread or something like that! Your mom's cake sounds delicious! The other smell of dearly love is coffee the Circle E Cappuccino Delight and I should get a discount from Circle E as we are a pretty good testimony on their products! :) Love you girl!
