Welcome to my first Thursday Thirteen post! I decided to join in on this meme so I could get to know myself again. I could tell you thirteen things about each of my children or my husband at a drop of a hat, but it's not so easy when it comes to myself. This will be a good weekly exercise for me.

Thirteen Things that I Love to Smell
1. Leather
2. Coffee brewing
3. Cinnamon
4. Lemongrass
5. Freshly bathed babies
6. Bread baking
7. Hot apple pie
8. Pine trees
9. Hollyberry
10. Clean laundry
11. Lavendar
12. Ripe peaches
13. Ginger

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

  3. I like 12 of the 13. I would replace the lavender scent with vanilla -- real vanilla.

    When I was a kid I spent a lot of time locked in a closet (like 1.5 years of my life) and the scent of lavender takes me back there. It isn't so much the scent I mind, as the emotions that come with it.

  4. Aaaaw QUILLY!!! (((hugs)))

    I'm so sorry that something that would otherwise be pleasing actually reminds you of something so awful.

    Welcome to TT! My #32 is up. I love the smell of coffee, but I don't drink it. Also love the relaxing scent of lavender.

    Hi Karen, welcome to TT. This is a great first list, and I love your reason for joining. Coffee brewing and bread baking are definitely two scents we smell alot around my house!

  10. Carol Said,

    Some wonderful smells on this aromatic list! I'd add "little." I love how their little heads smell! Not so much their other ends, though.

  11. Great list. Except for #2, which will give me a migraine, I love all the rest of them, too.

    Happy TT and congrats on joining in!
