But now she is mad at me, because I exchanged the gift. (Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works, the scent was not my style, but I loved the gesture. I did get pineapple orchid and wild honeysuckle instead.) I don't know how to make it up to her, because we had discussed this very subject (exchanging, me being picky about gifts, yes, I am a jerk) in October, before her birthday. I told her in advance about my pickiness, but I guess I am truly a rude person, and for that I apologize, but still love her and her thoughtfulness. And right now, my house smells awesome!!
And while I was there, I picked up a pineapple shaped pineapple orchid candle which is divine. And this one is pink, because the top of the white one I was carrying to the front to purchase flew off and shattered. Nuts.
