A Happy Hello from Sister Candle Wickes!
” I started to yen, so I counted to ten and I started to yen again-” July Garland, Meet Me In St. Louis
I am Sister Candle Wickes, Fully Professed and Loving It!
What does it mean (to me) to be a Sister: Being a Sister means being able to be beautiful but more importantly, it means being a crucial part of community. I’m coming with my white face, my big, beautiful wimple and my multi-colored cheeks to bring you blessings with glitter, bingo for good causes, and an amazing recipe for a hot and juicy apple pie.
What Are You Watching Right Now: Why Women Kill Season 2, Binging with Babish cooking videos, Golden Girls, and Oceans 8 – my favorite heist movie.
What would you tell your younger self if you could: I’d tell my little votive of a self that found family will mean more to you than ever as you get older. That the family you make and choose, the people who have your heart and your honesty, are treasures that will show you worlds you could only dream of. Also, learn to make cookies from scratch! They taste better that way.
Where would you like to go on vacation: I wanna go to Disneyland!
Sheroes: Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Mary Berry, Julia Child, Rachel Maddow, Malala Yousafzai, Ellen Greene, Alan Cumming (honorary)
The Three Words That Describe Candle: Delicious, Joyful, Retro Fabulous
