If you know me well, you know that I loooove lavender. I love the way it smells, I love the way that it blows in the breeze, I love its heavenly purpleness. My mother-in-love introduced us to the Lavender Festival three years ago, and now it's something I look forward to every June.
It's such a fun, relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
Jesse and I enjoyed their lavender latte and lavender lemonade, we strolled through fields and fields of lavender with Momma B, and loved every minute of our day there.
It's amazing to learn about how many different varieties of lavender there are...to see some old favorites, and find some new ones. I love Hidcote, French, and Melissa, and added Sarah to my list of favorites this year.
It was soothing to walk through the fragrant fields and admire local artists who had set up for the afternoon to paint the beautiful scenery that surrounded them.
Jesse and I also took the opportunity to get some fun maternity pictures...25 weeks along! Thanks, Momma B, for taking these photos! (and thanks to Paris who showed me how to do collages! ♥)
Jesse bought me some culinary lavender, which I am thrilled about. I grew it last year, but I don't have any this year, and with the move coming up, I don't want to plant any and then have to leave it behind. But I AM excited to get to bake with it again, and I'll look forward to getting to share some of my favorite lavender recipes with you!
