Danielle of There's a Book, started this meme/feature weeks ago and I've been meaning to participate ever since. This week, I finally am!
The idea behind this is to get to know each other better personally. Each week, she poses a question that you answer on your own blog then link up on her blog with the Mr. Linky. This week's question:
What is your favorite smell and why? Does it bring back memories?
I have a gazillion favorite smells, so I'm trying to narrow down to just two here. First, I love the smell of the mountains. See how I picked one that includes a ton of smells? But mostly, the mountains smell like pine trees, then just trees in general, and wild plant life, and fresh clean air, and dirt (that spongy soft mountain kind) and sometimes rain. It's the best. We have a favorite camping spot we go to every year and when people ask me what I do when we go, I always answer, "sit and breathe."
I also love the smell of baking. See how this also includes a ton of smells? Favorite baking smells that come to mind are chocolate chip cookies, bread (or rolls), anything cinnamon, banana bread, etc. Even our orthodontist's office catches the importance of this smell. They bake cookies all day long, which they give to patients (and their moms) as they leave... and so when you walk in you smell cookies and not that yucky doctor office smell. Somebody knew what they were doing!
