********************************************

Can I make a confession? 


When it comes to making my home smell amazing, I have a bit of an obsession! I love all things that give my home that 'welcome home' scent! From oil diffusers to sprays and yes, even candles. And we all know that when it comes to candles, nothing can beat Yankee Candles! So, when I found out about their newest collection Homefront Girl®, I was beyond thrilled. Take a look at the fragrances available:

FRAGRANCES –

Give Thanks For Heroes That Never Stop Giving – Fair Winds: A wish for your loved one’s safe journey is reflected in the refreshing scent of a gentle sea breeze.

Gratitude Never Out of Style – Watermelon Splash: This cool Independence Day favorite is a reminder of bold American spirit.

Love My Hero – Coconut Kisses: Warm and sweet, this delicious blend of coconut and caramel is a hint of what awaits when your hero comes home.

Not For Glory, Always For Country – Break of Day: Bright and fresh, like morning dew, it’s like the new hope each day brings.

Support Our Troops – Hidden Leaves: The scent of flowers and sunshine recalls a secret garden of the heart where fond memories of your hero bloom.

Now, if those scents like Coconut Kisses and Hidden Leaves sound familiar to you, that's because they are! The scents themselves are not new. In this new collection, they've taken five classic Yankee Candle fragrances and updated them with an inspiring patriotic look, featuring labels designed by career officer’s wife Gaby Juergens. Pretty cool, right? These are perfect for military families past and present like my own- or anyone who wishes to show support to those that fight for their freedom. But that's not all!




Not only do these candles feature great messages, but they support a great cause! One dollar from each Homefront Girl® candle sold (up to $75,000) will support Homes for Our Troops, a military charity that provides mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans post 9/11, enabling them to rebuild their lives. Here is a little more information on this wonderful organization:

Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI).  These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its founding in 2004, 90 cents of every dollar donated to HFOT has gone directly to our program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.

So, not only do you get a stunning candle that shows your military support in your home- but with your purchase you truly are helping to make a difference in the lives of our servicemen and women. As a (Once a Marine Corps, Always a Marine Corps) wife, this is product and a cause that I am proud to stand behind. Aside from that, they also smell amazing!!

But don't just take my word for it, the collection is available for purchase now at Yankee Candle’s more than 500 retail stores, www.yankeecandle.com and select specialty retailers and gift shops while supplies last.
