The Sister missionaries came over tonight with one of their investigators. Not only did I love their visit because it reminded me so much of my time in Brazil, but I loved it for another reason as well.
Before they left, Sister Wadsworth said, "Ooh. I love your bathroom. It smells like Christmas!"
I had to chuckle. She must have been referring to the cinnamon scentsy warmer in the bathroom which I always keep on when we are expecting visitors. I have to admit, I am obsessed with good smells. And there is just something welcoming about walking into a place that is filled with a delightful aroma.
My husband, Kyle, thinks I am crazy whenever I want to buy yet another scented candle, or in those moments when I have both scentsy warmers and an additional scented candle lit in our little microscropic Manhattan apartment all at the same time.
But now, I think I have a stronger argument the next Kyle even raises a brow at my candle-buying obsession. All I will have to do is say, "hmm. Smells like Christmas." Who wouldn't want their home to smell like Christmas and inevitably evoke all those wonderful sentiments?!
Way to go Sister Wadsworth. Way to go.
