It’s August 1st! What better way to welcome the month ahead with a quick snap of me and my little guy!
A bit of a rainy start, but I am excited to see what new adventures and opportunities arise over the next 31 days.
About an hour and a half outside of the GTA, you’ll find Laveanne – a beautiful lavender field in Campbellcroft, Ontario.
With free admission for the month of July, you can explore the farm and take in the relaxing aroma around you. This month, you still have time to enjoy a wine sampling, their Lavender Harvest Festival and an aromatherapy workshop.
While we were there, I purchased a dried lavender bouquet (which will last even long after the bouquet is gone by saving the buds in a sachet), and their body lotion.
It’s definitely one of my new favourite places. I look forward to going back! Click here for more information.
Prince Edward County Lavender’s annual Lavender Festival was this weekend. For over a year, I have been trying to plan a trip there, and this Saturday I finally did it.
What I find interesting about PEC Lavender – the owners Rolande and Derek are Yukon natives, who uprooted themselves only a few years ago to follow their lavender dreams in Ontario. As you know, I was in the Yukon earlier this year, and I must admit … it was hard to leave.
Some of the great products you can find at PEC Lavender include body care products, pure essential oils, wands, sachets and plants. During the fest, I picked up lavender goat milk soap and a bouquet of lavender picked from the field. I also sampled lavender chocolate and shortbread. Yummy!
If you’re coming from far out of town, you can always stay at one of their B&Bs. While you’re in Prince Edward County, stop by the farmer’s market and spend a day at Outlet Beach or the Sandbank’s dunes. It’s a provincial park, and will cost almost $20 to get in. But if you bring your beach wear, a volleyball and sunscreen, you’ll have a full day’s worth of fun in a clean and charming environment.
