Though I'm very loyal to Indiana, Georgia holds a special place in my heart. I've had a long, long obsession with Atlanta, and now that I've spent two summers there, I'm even more fond of the state.

And, once I found out about Paddywax candles, I had even more of a reason to love it. The amazing candles, created by Gretchen Hollingsworth, originated in Atlanta and make adorable gifts. They are perfect house warmers or I'm-thinking-of-you's.

I especially like the Journey of the Bee line, but they're all fabulous.

Besides, I don't just love Indiana, I love all of the midwest. And Hollingsworth got the idea when she was living in Chicago, so I can kind of claim it.
