Ayrie = Light. Â The two words are synonymous in my mind these days. Â Not light from a lamp but the purest kind of light… light from a fire for example. Â I have heard about himalayan salt from Khewra Salt Mines in Pakistan and have friends who have sworn that they could feel the positive effects of the Â negative ions present in Himalayan salt providing counterbalances to the positive ions resulting from electronic devices such as televisions and cell phones.
So I thought, why not? Â Even if I don’t feel the benefits I love the soft pink dancing glow that the flames give through the salt. Â I chose a candle holder that fits three tea light candles and we light them before bed each night. Â Shiya points to each flame over and says “One for Mommy, One for Ayrie, and One for Shiya.” Â He does this many times each night and I think we both really love these moments.
