I’m lucky to have such a great girlfriend who cares about me as much as she does.
I never ask for anything for my birthday or even holidays for that matter, but she manages to make me feel special like no one ever has before. It doesn’t matter if she simply gets me a leatherbound journal or buys a necklace or watch, I’m always left speechless by her thoughtfulness. When I ask her what she wants for our anniversary or her own birthdays, she tells me not to worry. She’ll claim that she doesn’t want anything, but I know better. I would go to the ends of the earth and back to make my partner happy. Aside from reciprocating with beautiful jewelry from time to time, I also buy her candles. She is obsessed with candles, especially expensive candles. I love it when her eyes light up upon receiving a new candle from me. Last week I bought her a sugar cookie scented candle for the holidays. As much as I love the candles too, they don’t come without their disadvantages. The soot starts to collect on indoor surfaces, especially on walls if they’re painted white or with light colors. But worst of all, the soot can get inside your air conditioning system, which recirculates the area around your house and spreads the black powder even further. Everytime it recirculates, it coats the air conditioner’s evaporator coil. Before long, it can lead to cracks within the coil itself. Even if you use a special filter designed to collect soot, you should be mindful when you’re using candles excessively.
