Keep Calm and Light Up
Unfortunately, sometimes it's hard to recover. Once worked into a frenzy, the adrenalin keeps pumping for a good long time. For instance, all my relatives are now gone, but my kitchen floor is encrusted with a combination of ragu sauce and poundcake crumbs, there's leftovers everywhere that I will never eat, and there appears to be tape attached to the cat. The Brits, in that now sadly ubiquitous poster, say "Keep Calm and Carry On." But I say, light up this Jonathan Adler Earl Grey Tea candle and settle in with some music and a good book for the afternoon instead. Screw the ragu, and let the cat figure out her own body issues. You need a break, and this heavenly, relaxing scent will help, I promise.
You also could pick up some of these candles for New Year's Eve hostess gifts; I think they're just the ticket for dealing with the demise of 2010. Find them at Jonathan Adler and breathe deep.
