Mads and I went to IKEA yesterday in search of several smalls things for the house. (Of course, I had a list!) My mom and dad are coming to Denmark three weeks from this Friday, so we want to get everything ready for their arrival. IKEA is a great place to find house things that are good and cheap, but yesterday, IKEA became my new favorite place... because I found something I have wanted since I moved to Denmark. Something I used EVERYDAY in America. Something I was "addicted to". Something everyone told me you cannot find in Denmark.
SCENTED CANDLES! When we came home, Mads and Albert went on a walk, and I immediately lit them all! When they came back, he said, "It smells like your apartment in Texas in here. I had forgotten how much I like this smell!" VANILLA HAS COME TO HARALDSGADE 1, and I am one happy woman!
