My first baby girl was born with a cleft lip and palate. I think the shock of her birth really forced me to reflect on what was important in my life, at the time I was traveling the world as a TV producer and on-air host for a television show called "Footnote". Navy, my daughter, turned my world upside down in a really beautiful way. Her birth forced me to pause and be still with her as we worked through her treatment, surgery, and ultimately her healing. In the process, I slowly found candles again. Something I had loved as a child, the art of candle making. It was a great way to center myself, re-align with my own spiritual journey, and make something safe and beautiful for my family.
Slowly I began to make them for friends and a close friend encouraged me to try selling them. That was nine years ago and we are now in small curated boutiques all across the country. Staying small batch, hand poured and close to our origin we are slowly growing our brand and meeting new folks who believe in safe, natural products for their homes that also bring an element of style to their modernly curated spaces.
Our main mission is to create beautifully imperfect handmade products for the modern home. Our second mission is to create a space of collaboration and an independent work ethic for a team of incredible women seeking to work differently.
I realized that to find a balance of work and play and care and love was the ultimate goal. I had created that for myself with this tiny brand and as we started to grow, I looked towards others that think with a similar perspective. Women who have these beautiful dreams and lives and in this little space we encourage each other. We collaborate and push each other and we laugh. We laugh a lot.
I feel very grateful to be living this simple perfect dream and sharing it with those around me who also find beauty in small curated dreams.
Thanks for being a part of this story with us! I love hearing all of your stories as you share with me the memories our candles evoke within you! So many hugs my dears
