I’ve been growing my own herbs in the window. At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. I’ve never really grown herbs before. They were on an end cap at Lowe’s calling my name with the tiny clip-on chalkboard tags and the little tin buckets….put there for people just like me who go into Lowe’s to buy a light and come out with an herb kit. I wasn’t sure if they would actually grow. Well….actually I wasn’t sure if I would remember to water them. But I did. And they grew. And now I have herbs and I need to think up something to do with them. Some people would use them to cook. I’m not some people….and my grandmother’s best friend was Sarah Lee. So I’m using them to make homemade room scents…..personalized just for me….from herbs and citrus and extracts. When I was younger, we traveled to the New England coastline every summer.

It was always the same. And we would know that another summer had begun. And that we were home. That’s what these room scents smell like to me. Home.
