Looking on The Brightside….we have a WINNER!

It is without a doubt, our honor to have read all the inspiring and thoughtful comments from The Brightside Project (http://www.thebrightsideproject.com/) on answering our question…

What scent reminds you of your childhood and why?

After much careful consideration and trips down memory lane ourselves, we are pleased to share the following answer….

Linnea's Lights, a company that is named after a long Swedish lineage and fabulous women named Linnea (or the shortened version Lynn)…is rooted in history and the power of family relationships. Just reading this passage brought back sweet, delicate memories of spending time outside riding bikes, catching fireflies, tending to the garden (while sampling a fresh tomato or two), smelling the lily of the valleys in bloom and the aroma of freshly baked strawberry-rhubarb pie coming from the kitchen.
The real reason why this passage is a winner is how the scent of memory that one's own child evokes is awe-inspiring and just plain beautiful!
The tenderness of loving another human in the present moment while remembering such delicious memories of the past is one that puts a smile to our faces.

So, here's to looking at the brightside always and taking notice of the things that truly matter…our children, our family, nature and the beauty they all bring to our lives!

P.S. In case you were wondering, we don't forsee adding "kid sweat" anytime to our list of scents, but if we certainly hope that each scent we lovingly craft, evokes a special memory of two of your very own….
