I wrote a post yesterday but it felt a little off for me. I’ve taken the post down and I’m trying something different. Same photo, new words…
My dear friend gifted me this set of votive candles years ago. Every Christmas season, I set them out (because they’re sweet) (and they remind me of her) but I never burn them. As I set them out the other day, I told myself that I will indeed burn them this year. I will enjoy them (and then… replacement candles!).
I do this sometimes. Love something so much that I hesitate to use it. I want to save it, don’t want to “spoil it”. But I wonder if something gets lost then…in that precious handling of things.
I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life.

Here’s to enjoying the things and people that bring joy into our days.
I’ll burn these candles this Christmas season.
And I’ll think of my sweet friend. And I’ll think of you too.
Here’s to loving, but not holding too tightly. Here’s to making life beautiful.
sending a little love your way, m
