At our house the smells of the seasons accent our home. For the children it’s Cinnamon Apple lingering in the air. I love to watch them come inside and pause for a brief moment and then inhale deeply to take it all in. My husband prefers the smell of a pine forest. He doesn’t exaggerate the warm fuzzy the scent inspires but he walks through the house and comments on how wonderful the house smells.
I love watching my family be transported to a place or memory triggered by a scent. I love the chatter of those moments and the knowledge that by lighting our candle, we’re creating new memories.
For the first time in ten years, I’m going home for the holidays. I feel so blessed. We’ve spent holidays without my siblings and their families far too long. Fabreze knows deep down we all want to go home this holiday season. If you want to go home, or know someone who does, head on over to the Febreze’s Facebook page for a chance to win $10,000. Just share your story about a loved one who can’t make it home this holiday season and how they need a little happiness this year.
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Febreze. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
