Memories are evoked by sights, sounds, but mostly for me by the scents around me. I can recall memories based on a smell…like my mom baking, the smell of bacon coming upstairs while on vacation at my Granny’s, wet trees in the forest….I think you get the point. I love the smell of a clean home or something baking in the oven or even onions sauteing on the stove top.
I’ve learned over the years that keeping my kitchen (and guest bathroom) company ready has taken a lot of the stress out of my life. When a friend calls and wants to drop by…the house is picked up already, so I just switch on my little Hooty Hoo (yes, we named him)….and my guests are welcomed to a clean kitchen and a lovely aroma of vanilla or hazelnut or ginger lime. Keeping your entry way or the first room your guests see clean is such an easy and simple task and it makes all the difference.
I love inviting people into my home and being a hostess. It’s one thing I think I’m actually pretty decent at and it is such a blessing to be able to make others feel welcome and comfortable in my home. It’s not always about the cooking, but about creating an welcoming atmosphere. It’s about warming your heart and home so that you can spread that warmth to others.
I want to create an atmosphere of warmth in my home. A place where the kids feel safe and create memories. A place where family and friends feel welcome and at home. I used to burn candles all the time, but with young kids and an old cat who likes to get into trouble an open flame was not a safe option for my home. So I decided to give these Scent Pod Warmers from Gold Canyon a try. My friend is a consultant and hooked me up with this adorable owl warmer and a bunch of pods.
Add a scent warmer to help create a warm heart & home. What I love most is that I can easily change the scent pods to match the season or whatever is going on. The pods come in resealable plastic containers making them super easy to swap out a moments notice. This is quite possibly my favorite feature. I think the first month or two, I switched pods every day just for fun. There are 16 warmer options to match your decor (and of course sports balls for all you sports families) and dozens of scents to pick from…no matter what your scent-style is. The other cool feature is that the warmers come with a adjustable on/off switch. Turn on your warmer and select whether you want to stay on for 4,8, or 12 hours or until you turn it off. I love to turn it on before we leave the house, so that the house is filled with amazing smells when we get home.
