Let me tell you a little story about a German foreign exchange student named Christian and a very naive young girl named April…
This very naive young lady was in her high school years when suddenly one day she met a young man in the cafeteria who wanted to carry her books for her… she didn’t really like the idea of people doing things for her so she promptly told him no thank you and tried to be on her way. What she didn’t know was that this young man was for whatever reason, smitten with her and he wasn’t going to take no for an answer, so a tug of war between the two began with him pulling her books one way and a very flustered young lady pulling her books back and demanding that they be released at once.
What this young woman didn’t recognize was that, her young suiter was trying to do a gentlemanly thing and she was insulting him beyond belief. He was very flustered and tried ever so hard to gain her attention, but she refused to acknowledge his existence. Not because she was being mean on purpose.. it was just because she didn’t recognize his attention for what it was. Until one day she came home from school and was surprised by a knock on the door.
A flower delivery man had been sent to her house with not one, but TWO dozen red roses in a beautiful glass vase. She was slightly unnerved and still not mature enough to know how to handle this kind of attention so she marched into her school guidance counselor office the next day and demanded that this harassment by Christian be dealt with. The guidance counselor stifled his laugh and said..
“Don’t you think that maybe he just likes you?”
Yes that young and very naive woman was myself and years later I wonder how Christian is doing. And I know it was because of those roses that I will always remember this young man. I never even thanked him for his sweet gestures and I hope my naivity didn’t scar him. Where ever you are Christian I hope life has been kind to you.
Moral of this story!

My Candle Is Here!!!
See that beautiful picture above? THAT is the candle that I have wanted since I first set eyes on Fragrant Jewels! I finally caved in and bought one for myself. There is one scent that I favor above all others and it is the beautiful smell of heirloom roses. Rose Oil manages to capture it’s scent beautifully and I used to have a small bottle of it that a family member gave to me as a birthday present. Ever since then I am drawn to anything that has this scent infused into it. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my very own rose scented candle! And Here it is!!
I ordered it on May 30, 2015 and I received it on June 4th, 2015! The Delivery Time Was Very Acceptable!
