Here we are at Sunday, my friends. Did you have a good week? Is it rainy and gray where you are? That’s what it’s like here, dreary for three days now, and it reminds me of when I lived in Seattle. It’s not non-stop rain and sloshing through puddles; it’s just gray and misty an awful lot. After a while, it wears on you, especially if you’re not from that area–if you grow up equating sunshine to good moods and good days. But the dreariness is the only drag about Seattle, because the city is just about perfect in every other way.
But enough about the weather. One thing I’ve been meaning to ask you: What’s your take on Yankee Candles? Worth the price or what? Because Daniel and I are now kinda, sorta…those people who may or may not go all the way to the Yankee Candle Store and, uh, smell every candle. It started so innocently though. We thought a candle might help off-set the unholy stench of roasted broccoli in our apartment. And now we’re in over our heads with a $25-candle-habit.
Tell me what’s new!
