A Year of Wishes!

I just had to share a gift my oldest daughter got me for Christmas, and New Year's Eve was the perfect time.  I unwrapped the package to discover it was from Red Envelope (love, love, love).  Upon opening the box this is what I discovered...

A glass plate, a set of tweezers (yes, tweezers!) and instructions...hmmm...After futher inspection, this is what I found...


12 chunky brightly colored candles, each with a silver plate and word of inspiration on the front (health, joy, adventure, fun, peace, wealth, success, comfort, love, balance, luck, longevity).  And, the following instructions:  As your candles burn, each reveals a tiny treasure hidden inside-a keepsake charm to remind you of the power of intentions, dreams and wishes!  How cool is that!!!!!  I am super excited to burn each of them and discover the charm inside, plus each silver piece on the front is a keepsake too!

Wishing each of you a Very Happy New Year, may all your wishes come true!

Oh what a special gift! Of course anything that comes in a Red Envelope box has to be special. But the sentiment of the gift makes it over-the-top.

I'll be checking on you over at Megans.
