You can read here about CANDLE HOARDER if you haven't already.
Everyone probably already knows this, like, "Duh, Faith!" I am lazy about trimming the wicks of my candles to 1/4" thick. I've recently been attempting to be more disciplined about it and it's paying off. If you don't do it already, please start. This is more of a reminder for my own need than anything else. Candles, I never get enough of you. Ah! I want more and more every moment! I come home and boom, within seconds my home is aflame in all its glory. That is, after I've trimmed down my candle wicks to their appropriate lengths. Discipline, the master of all things.
