It all started when I was watching a podcast about passion and the journey of finding what you love to do. The person asked “if you could do anything in the world right now, what would it be?” I thought about it and realized how much I love baking. It encouraged me to explore what I loved about it. I realized the thing I love about baking is the process. The pouring, mixing, and melting. More importantly, it’s a constant lesson in the beauty of patience. What’s more beautiful than making something with love and giving that gift to someone else? That’s how I fell into my purpose and landed into Lepa Candle Co.
The name Lepa is from my husband’s Serbian culture. It means beautiful. Lepa spoke to me because there is beauty in everything. You just have to look.
