Well as it always does,
summer is flying by. We've been lucky these last couple months as the weather really has been beautiful. I have put my energy towards indulging in everything that these sunny days have to offer, bbq's, time by the lake, festivals, and concerts, and time with family + friends. We have some upcoming trips planned that I'm excited to share afterwards but in the next couple of weeks I'm looking forward to getting back in to a routine and hopefully finishing some home projects that have been on my list for months. I look forward to sharing all of this this and more!
I took a ride down the lake
to attend a Lavender Festival that was happening this past weekend. I was curious what it'd be like and it was just something fun and different to explore. It was a cool set-up at a really pretty farmhouse overlooking the lake. There were all different vendors set up throughout the property and you could grab a pair of scissors and cut your own lavender bunch to bring home for $5. Drying the lavender was the recommended use as it can last up to years this way. The process takes about 2-4 weeks total and after that you can incorporate it into your decor or use it for a fun DIY project. The herb gives us a really nice scent and is said to relieve stress, promote relaxation, and even soothe a headache. This stuff may come in handy :)
