Scratch & Sniff

Tuesday's Think Kit prompt - "Scents have the power to take us all kinds of places. What smell takes you somewhere else? Where'd you go?"

Smells are important. Especially the smell of blueberry muffins on Christmas morning that wafted through my home growing up. It's a rather innocuous smell but one that's really left an imprint on me.

This smell is so engrained in my being. Mom somehow finds time to make a couple dozen boxed blueberry muffins to take to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Ford Christmas, all while doing the things great moms do on Christmas morning. This took decades of conditioning and because of that, whenever I smell blueberry muffins I'm no longer completely here. I'm partially there.

I'm blogging this month as part of Smallbox Design's community project Think Kit (  It's my 3rd or 4th year doing it and it's real entertaining for me, and sometimes my audience.

I'll be blogging from my phone, more times than not this Think Kit. Please excuse typos or editing lapses because this screen is apparently still too small for those sorts of things.
