Feeding America

Growing up, food was central to our family. The act of preparing & receiving a meal, even a simple one, was an act of affection. Gatherings still center around a table full of home cooked dishes. But it wasn't always that simple. Though my parents both worked diligently, we also experienced scarcity.

Holiday Candle Trends for 2019-2020

When it comes to autumn & winter home fragrance, lighting a candle makes perfect sense. A tiny bit of heat from the candle helps to warm up fragrance notes, while a flicker of light adds cozy ambience. Sugar & spice & everything nice. Traditional spices like cinnamon & clove are likely the first thoughts that come to mind when thinking about classic holiday scents. There is something nostalgic about combinations like Orange & Clove or Chai & Cinnamon. They work great in kitchen spaces because holiday meals tend to be heavier & windows stay closed.
