Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays……..because I’m a total hopeless romantic.
It comes so soon after Christmas, that Paul and I decided to celebrate every year with inexpensive, cheesy gifts and fun experiences.
This year, I’m giving him a bucket with ribbon around it. Inside, I’ve written on slips of paper all of the things he’s mentioned wanting to do or accomplish in the future, such as: have another baby, put $ in different stocks, travel to Europe for our 5 year anniversary, start a company with me, etc.
On the top of the pail, I’ve written “Our Bucket List” and will slip money into it every week.
In the future, I’ll write the date in sharpie as we accomplish something together. It’s simple, but it’s a way to show I support his dreams and goals and I’m on his team for life. You can make (or buy) one similar here.
This year, I hope Paul gets me a new journal and more soy candles from The Peaceful Porch. It’s quickly become one of my favorite places to buy soy candles for our home.
Here are the benefits of burning soy candles
- no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it’s less likely to trigger allergies.
- no petrol-carbon soot like we would get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
- lasts 50% longer than a paraffin candle, because the soy wax burns cooler.
These candles smell incredible….
My favorite scent is the Strawberry Creme………..I could EAT it, it smells so good. To the men out there who read my blog, purchase this set here as a gift for Valentine’s Day asap!
There’s not a woman in the world who doesn’t love a candle that is safe for the home, smells amazing, and looks beautiful.
I’m loving the scents: Peppermint and Hippie Chick right now, but The Peaceful Porch shop has 21 different scents to choose from.
