The Warmth and Comfort of a Candle

This series is dedicated to the simple rituals we all have. The ones that make our day better most likely unknowingly so. Whether that's reading a newspaper at breakfast on a Sunday or taking the dog for a walk before work. I want to celebrate these small yet significant rituals that we take for granted every day.

For me, the glow, the sound of the crackle, the smell, the warmth, the light, all the things of a lit candle give me a wonderful feeling of comfort. I feel like I get transported to another world, or have succumbed to the magnificent powers of an old storybook full of history, magic, romance, drama, fantasy, and wonderment. Some days a candle is all I need at the end of the day to soothe my soul.

Remember that morning rituals are important to starting your day off right, but an evening ritual is where the magic happens to rid yourself of all the stress that has built up throughout the day.
