A Moment in Paradise

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the beach.  Given the choice of where to spend a vacation, I always choose a warm sunny locale.  The salt air, the sun, the sound of the waves, the warm ocean breezes......what's not to love? Just take a look at this picture. I've been going to the beach since before I could walk.
Me and my Dad at Edisto Beach 1966

But ya know, it's not always summer here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.  We do have days that are just too cold to stroll the beach.  So what do I do about that longing for the sounds and smells of the ocean? Turn on some beach music and light up a candle. Yeah, a candle! But not just any candle. It has to have the aroma of a tropical paradise. How does this sound:

                     Caribbean fragrance - A tropical paradise blend of coconut, fresh sliced pineapple with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Or what about this:

                   Sea Salt & Lotus Blossoms - The scent of fresh air, sea salt, ocean mist and aquatic florals come together to create a sexy, modern twist on this fresh & clean fragrance, complete with tender green notes and beachy musks.

Don't those sound intoxicating? So, you may be wondering where you can get your hands on some of these candles. Well I'm going to tell you.  A Moment in Paradise. That's the Etsy shop owned by the one and only Shannon Rose. You see, Shannon has a love of all things tropical too. She offers so many great sounding fragrances, you'll have a hard time choosing! She doesn't have just hand poured candles, but candle melts and air fresheners too. So if you find yourself longing for a tropical escape during the upcoming long winter months, I invite you to go take a look at Shannon's shop.

Light up a candle and set the mood. You'll be glad you did!
