Taking a trip without the kids? Riddled with guilt and anxiety the minute I leave the door, and I know I'm not the only one. In addition to taking one of the boys soft toys with me, I never take a trip without one of our mini travel candles. It gives me comfort and reminds me of home when I know I can't be with the boys. They're also a gorgeous (cost-effective!) addition to any gift when you're trying to pad out a present ... Travel Candle ... add to basket. Thank me later.
