Why did you decide to start a business?

What is your favorite client story?
I had a male customer tell me that when he comes home and his wife is burning my candles it creates a mood and experience for them; that really means a lot to me because I value marriage and to know that my candles are playing a part in happy marriages brings me great joy!
