I think I’ve made it pretty clear that there are SO many thing I love about the holiday season, but undoubtedly one of them is the scents of Christmas time. Last year, for our first Christmas in Chicago, on my walk to our grocery store, there was a hotel. The decorations they put out on the sidewalk smelled just like the boxes of ornaments that my mom takes out every year to decorate our tree – a true scent of Christmas! I loved smelling it and thinking of all my amazing Christmas memories with my family. Since we moved to a new neighborhood this past summer, I was kind of sad I would no longer walk past that hotel and smell the scent of their holiday decorations. But…guess what?! A bar right at the end of our street has decorations out that smell exactly the same! Imagine my surprise when I walked past and smelled it for the first time! It was meant to be!
So, after that random tangent – this season is filled with scents that are tied to great memories and that are just so fun to fill your house with. This season only comes once a year, after all, so you have to take advantage of them when you can (am I the only one who thinks the Christmas season is too short?!).
