I wish you could stop by for coffee this morning.
I have so much to tell you.
I’d throw open the door and tell you how happy I was that you were there and you’d say my messy bun looked amazing and I’d tell you it had paint splatters in it.
And then we’d laugh like we had known each other forever.
Then I’d show you the perfect new nail polish color called Field Fox that I just found that’s not too bold, not too boring with a hint of lilac and a hint of khaki that kind of looks like spring and tell you that I started watching Gilmore Girls again from the beginning and we should pack our bags and move to Stars Hollow. And I’d show you this piece of molding that I just found by the side of the road that looks so full of promise and we’d head to the back porch where I’m in the middle of a fun project and when we walked through the rooms you would sniff…..
….and tell me the house smelled amazing.
And I’d smile and say, “I know….right?”
I wish you were here for coffee so you could smell what I am smelling at this very moment.
It’s making my heart happy.
There’s a hint of fruit layered in with a hint of floral layered in with pineapple layered in with the salty spray of the ocean.
If I close my eyes and take a deep breath, it’s like my yoga pants and paint spattered messy bun fade away and I’m sitting on a beach chair with the ocean in the distance looking totally amazing and super skinny and someone is bringing me drinks on a bamboo platter.

They asked me to partner with them for their new Margaritaville candle line.
I told them I would be honored.
And then I sat and thought about how I could convey the scent to you?
I wish this was smellavision, but I don’t think it’s a thing yet.
So I did the next best thing.
I created a visual for the candles.
A little island oasis on the back porch.
I discussed it with the candles and they told me if they could decorate the back porch, this is what it would look like.
Tropical and sassy and fun and full of all that’s good and right with summer.
There are four scents in the new Margaritaville line.
Lime & Sea Salt – A tropical lime cocktail waiting for that chilled glass with a collar of sea salt.
Pineapple Breeze – Juicy pineapple and tropical blooms pick up a hint of fresh vanilla on the warm island breeze.
Mother Ocean – A breezy scent full of island air and big surf with notes of blue lotus and lavender.
Jamaican Vacation – Ripe tropical fruits, fresh island blooms and a dash of sugar let you know it’s island time—breathe in, enjoy, relax.
All the scents come in pillar candles carved with a little bit of the islands, large square candles, small square candles, the cutest striped tin candles and tea lights.
I think this is my favorite combination.
A little Jamaican Vacation mixed with Pineapple Breeze.
I’m closing my eyes again and heading for the islands.
The screened-in porch has a head start on me….
….it’s time to get my summer on. 🙂
