Who has been loving their Pumpkin Gingerbread candle?! 🎃 We are pretty obsessed with this cozy, sweet, and perfectly pumpkin-y scent! ⠀ ⠀ The blend of sweet pumpkin with the warm gingerbread is a perfect scent that is not only perfect for fall #pumpkinspiceeverything) but it is a great transition into the Christmas season! The gingerbread element gives the pumpkin a unique twist with a nod to Christmas ✨. This is perfect for my budget savvy gals who want to savor their candle through the holidays and get the best of both worlds! ❤️ ⠀ ⠀ p.s. there are only TWO of these guys left in the shop!! 🎃

Y’all! We have been so blown away by you that we need to say a huge THANK YOU 🙌! ⠀ ⠀ We have sold most of the fall collection and only have a few fall candles left in stock! Unfortunately, we won’t be able to restock them so once they sell out, they are gone! If you’ve been thinking about trying them (or getting a back-up stash 😉) this is your chance! ⠀ ⠀ As a small business, it is super scary to step out and do something new. We weren’t sure how this fall launch would go and y’all have made it a huge success! ⠀ ⠀ Thank you so much to each of you who have ordered a candle (or a bunch of candles!), shared our account with your friends, or cheered us on in any way! I am truly so grateful for you and your support 💛.

New headshots, who dis?! Ha! But actually when I look at this, I think a lot has happened in the last four years! Well, two kids is one but also a little bud of a dream has blossomed into a small shrub that shakes with delight in what God has done! - @austinkleon says “do the work you want to see done.” And a decade ago, I wanted to see healthier friendships, solid communities and women actually investing in one another. After some real tough and dry seasons in college, I left deciding to not wait any longer for those friendships to “just happen” but go out there and build them!! - I want friendships to be do-able, not some lofty, flowery idea of friendship but hands-on, simple, everyday habits you use to grow those awesome gal pals. - Let’s continue to figure out faithful friendship together and exemplify Jesus in our love and care for one another.

You know what’s fun? Having friends across generations! And not only is it fun - it’s a great way to learn + gain wisdom from women who have experienced more than you. I love learning from ladies a few steps ahead of me in life - and I like to think they enjoy spending time with me and the fact that I can help them troubleshoot their iPads 😂 But in all seriousness, friendship can and should span all ages - because age is just a number after all!

Pop culture spews this ideal of finding “your person,” the bff that just gets you and is always there for you. But what happens what they can’t be there? What happens when they get married, move for a new job or find a different community group? - This ideal expectation of our friends is a burden they cannot bear. It’s a disappointment we don’t need to “just get over.” So, how do we love our friends without expecting them to be our everything? - It’s not that we love our friends less but we learn to order our loves rightly. We no longer replace the role of Jesus in our lives with our friends. Friends are beautiful gifts but just shadows of the PERFECT FRIEND in Christ. - I don’t know what friendship disappointments you’re carrying today but take them to Jesus. Trust him with your unmet expectations. Ask him to fill your lonely places and meet your needs. Then we can freely invest in friendships, knowing we are fully loved with or without them.

No one ever used her front door they always came in through her carport side door. Straight into her kitchen. ⁣ ⁣ Her house was typically clean but cluttered. And there was never any pretense. She could host a wedding shower and make the best sandwich. You could eat home made cakes and dessert or a Tony’s pizza she cut up with kitchen shears. ⁣ ⁣ I think i inherited my love of all things home from her. #allthingshome #gratitudequotes #gratitudedare #oldermom #grandmasarethebest #40somethingmom #homeandhospitality #cookingwithkids #gingersnaps #scruffyhospitality

thedarlinghomeco. 🍂 PUMPKIN PIE CAKE 🍂
Pumpkin spice season is here and this cake

🍂 PUMPKIN PIE CAKE 🍂 ⠀ ⠀ Pumpkin spice season is here and this cake is seriously the yummiest. The trick is to make sure that you don’t over bake it. It’s so moist (ew, I hate that word...but it’s true 🤷‍♀️) right out of the oven and if you leave it in the refrigerator it gets a pumpkin pie-like texture that is so bomb! 😍 ⠀ ⠀ I’ve been making this almost every week for the past few months 😂. Stephen and I are both obsessed. Sometimes I ditch the frosting and add in some dark chocolate chunks. That’s Stephens favorite. And yes, it makes a terrific breakfast if you were wondering 😉. ⠀ ⠀ If you double the recipe it works great in a sheet pan, perfect for sharing at fall festivities. It’s also gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and can easily be made vegan with an egg substitute and your favorite vegan frosting. Pumpkin spice for everybody! 🎃 You’re definitely going to want to do yourself a favor and save this recipe for your next fall gathering! 😉

If I’m being honest, when I started this business I was terrified! But I knew, that in order to grow, I needed to step outside my comfort zone. Which is why I was genuinely thrilled to receive this amazing feedback from one of our amazing Darling Home Co. friends, @jenscozyhome. “This spiced apple cider and crisp autumn walk scented candle makes whichever room I have it in feel all warm and cozy! I seriously fall in love with each new thing I get from their company!! They've put so much thoughtfulness into their products. I love how it's clean and safe for my family and honestly smells like heaven. 🍁” ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This is what it’s all about!! I am so glad that Jen found a candle that she can feel good about burning this fall. There’s so much joy in what I do and today I am so very thankful 🙌.

clairenmccarter. SEASONS CHANGE.

Being on the east coast and getting to see the season

SEASONS CHANGE. Being on the east coast and getting to see the seasons change before my eyes reminds me that seasons change in our relationships - our relationships with friends, partners, family, and ourselves. For a longggg time, I didn’t understand that friendships went through seasons. I was always hurt when a friend moved on in their life without me - I always took it personally. I didn’t understand that friendships change over time; I wanted them to stay the same + to be comfortable FOR ME. Over time, I’m learning that friendships change. The people I’m close to now aren’t the same people who I was close to 10 years ago. I’ve added to my list of friends and held onto some friends and said see ya later to some others. We can’t force the seasons to stop changing and we can’t force our friendships to remain the same (as much as we might want to). And take a lesson from my mess ups: don’t burn the whole thing down when a friendship changes and you’re upset in the moment. You never know if/when you’ll end up back in each other’s lives. And you don’t want to be like me who will need to ask for forgiveness and apologize countless times for not gracefully letting a friendship shift, end, or change. Let’s just say I’m a little stubborn! How have you seen your friendships change?

The balloons read: YOU’RE CELEBRATED HERE! If two roads diverged in the woods of female friendship; one path would lead us to acknowledge the talents/gifts of others and the other path would lead us to disqualify those gifts. I know women talk about competition a lot but we do so because we may need to fight the voices of comparison DAILY. So, it’s important to say it again: . 1. Find your security in Christ. You are worthy, valued and loved. God looks at you as an instrument for His good purposes. 2. You are a part of a larger community and in God’s economy, no one person is more important or more valuable than another. Everyone is useful, everyone is needed. 3. You want other women to pursue their gifts and excel in their calling for the glory of God and the good of this world. . Let’s celebrate 🎉 the good work of God in our community of women. Let’s “outdo one another in showing honor” (Rom. 12:10). Let’s serve “her over there” by only allowing words to come out of our mouths that build her up according to her need (see Ephesians 4:29). . Whatever you need to do today: apologize for tearing her down, share her latest accomplishment or get in the Word so you can love your sister in deed and in truth...get it done! Let’s celebrate the GIFT of female friends👭 !

I know it’s Monday but I think some #fridayintroductions are in order. There are so many new friends hanging out with us and I am so glad that you are here! I wish you could come over and sit in my living room with a hot mug filled with something delicious or have a fall baking party while we get to know each other. But since it’s the internet we can just pretend. ⠀ ⠀ My name is Jackie and I live in small-town Texas with my hubby 🧔🏻 and Winston, our doodle 🐶. We create dreamy, clean-burning, coconut wax candles for homemakers like you! A sweet friend on here (@herlittlevillage 😉) gave me the nickname “candle queen” and I have to say I am here for that 🙋‍♀️. Except y’all are the real queens for caring about what you bring into your homes and looking for clean products! 👏 ⠀ ⠀ Three random fall-themed facts about me: 🍁 I’ve been on a Gilmore Girls kick recently and I’m kind of sad that I don’t live in Stars Hollow. I think I need to plan a fall road trip to find a real-life version of it and move there because Stars Hollow in the fall is what dreams are made of 😍. ⠀ 🍁 I turn up the A/C in my house so I can wear sweaters. ⠀ 🍁 I’m an October baby and I’m pretty sure that I asked to go apple picking every year for my birthday in elementary school 🍎. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I want to get to know you too! What are you loving this fall? 💗

At a time when loneliness extends to all corners of our communities, how will we prioritize and pursue our friends? . 📝 Write down three names and beside each name, write down something you’ve done recently to love them intentionally. Has it been awhile? Do you know how they best feel loved? Reach out and reconnect this week 😘 📸 @thesprucecreative

What does Anne’s October smell like? ⠀ ⠀ Dewy maple leaves 🍁 , crisp red apple 🍎 , fresh pines 🌲, spicy clove, and the warmth of golden sunshine ☀️. Anne’s October feels like a crisp autumn walk through the maple trees of Prince Edward Island with hot apple cider in hand. This candle is infused with lemon, turpentine, and cedar-leaf essential oils. ⠀ ⠀ I have to say- I went back and forth on the name of this candle. I wasn’t sure if people would get the reference. I have been so surprised that this has been the most popular candle this week! How fun! Are you an Anne of Green Gables fan? Was it from the books, the movie, or the TV show?? So much nostalgia 😍.
