  8. I absolutely loved this article and smiled so many times reading the ones that really hit home for me. I would only add one thing to smell and/our sound: a campfire on a summer night! One of my favorite sounds is the crackle it makes and people laughing so around it. And it’s also one of my favorite smells as well. Reminds me of happy summers!

    1. So happy you enjoyed the article! What a great addition to this list – the smell of a campfire – yes! That could actually be something for all 5 senses once you add roasting marshmallows. Thanks for sharing Nicole!
