When I say life changed, I am not kidding. My little company grew much bigger faster than I could ever have imagined, and I was so lucky that these angels were right there to take the load. "The Warehouse" as it came to be called was always bustling with activity, people, food, laughter, and yes, we actually got the work done too. Such a magnetic, happy place folks would drop by on their days off to hang out and help. There are so many stories about this time of excitement...from shipping candles to Italy, Iceland, and Japan; selling candles directly to Michael Jackson for a party; the press all over the nation exploding. But those memories don't even "hold a candle" to my memories of the people who worked with me and the family we became. Brian, Chris, Stacey, and Mark you were my rocks. I will always be grateful that you were there with me.
