I am having a hard time with the fact that September is ending. I held on to the last few days with all my might and even sunbathed at my parents' pool on Friday. Because I have self diagnosed Seasonal Depression, the end of September means fall is coming, which means winter isn't far behind, and then I'm going to be hibernating and grumpy and planning trips to tropical places.
Therefore, when I was at the mall today getting a few specialty items for one of my-favorite-people-in-the-world's bachelorette party, I let the smells of Bath and Body Works lure me in. I cope with the end of summer by embracing all things apple and pumpkin. So no, I didn't need to spend $20 on a candle, but it's Monday, and tomorrow is October, and sometimes retail therapy is a Pumpkin Pecan Waffle three wick candle from Bath and Body Works. (Now, I need to create a recipe inspired by the candle, because it smells YUM!)
