DAY 3:
Mother's Day Gift Guide Giveaway
Personalized Yankee Candle

A few years back (okay probably more like 5 years ago... bear with me), I had been laid off from a job in the most shady way.  It was the first time I had ever been let go from a job so I took it very emotionally.  Other than pack my bags and file for unemployment (please believe, I did that first), there was nothing else to do but be patient and see where God was leading me.  During this time, my family was super supportive and lucky for me, it was summer break.  Although, I had a camera at the time, it was rarely being used.  So, I decided to pick it up finally and actually LEARN how to use it by capturing photos of my children.  This hobby became my clutch to get through this rough phase.  Over time, I became better and better and from that came one of my favorite pictures of them to date.

I have this photo EVERYWHERE in my home.  It's in frames, it's been a Christmas photo... I even have it on coasters!  LOL.  So naturally, when Yankee Candle said they would partner for this giveaway I already knew what photo I wanted on the Personalized Candle.  I'm a candle LOVER... have been for a very long time but I never thought about Personalized Candles until I saw the Yankee Candle commercial... the idea is freaking genius!  What's better than getting an amazing smelling candle?  One that's been personalized just for you, that's what.  Not only am I sharing this adorable concept with you in case you want to grab your own here but Yankee Candle is actually giving one away to one of you amazing Moms.  Yep, that means you have a chance to personalize your very own candle should you win!  Pretty cool, right?

  1. That is such a sweet gift. With all the digital photos on our phones people don't really print photos as much as they used to. This is a great way to have a favorite photo wherever you go and it smells amazing. I love candles but I'm scared to light mine half the time because my guys are always ruff-housing and I don't want to start a fire! Lol!
