smells of Christmas

Okay, I've been reading how memory is highly affected by smells.  So, I'm trying to burn the candles more, bake cookies, make candies, soups and bread - the house smells yummy - well, some of the time - currently, it smells of fresh brewed coffee.  We have an artificial tree, but I do remember the times in my childhood that the house was scented with pine too.  Maybe I will make cinnamon ornaments with the girls (if not this year, next).  I want them to have happy memories of "home" all of their days.  Blessings.

  1. This is so true. A friend of mine gave me a Scentsy pack that smelled like bubble gum (Bazooka bubble gum, actually)- which in our house was a rare treat growing up. It was so strange how that scent brought back feelings of happiness every time I turned on the candle warmer.
