I’ve been wanting to visit a local lavender farm for years, so we finally made the trip out! There were two farms I wanted to see in Michigan – Lavender Hill Farm in Boyne City, and Lavender Hill Farm of Niles. I believe this one is a bit smaller, but super cute and quaint! We hopped on a back country road to get there, and pulled up to an adorable little house with a front yard of lavender. As soon as you entered the driveway, the air smelled so good.
We went inside to ask “How do we cut our own lavender?” and a super nice lady gave us a pair of scissors and said, “Head on out!”. There were several different kinds to choose from, but honestly, I just loved them all. I ended up making the smallest little batch, not realizing that I could have cut enough to fill up a twist-tie. So I ended up buying some lavender water too – it smells so heavenly!
The last time I wore this lavender dress on the blog was in 2010… so 5 years ago. Isn’t that crazy?! I’m baffled I’ve been blogging for that long. It will be six years in September. Eep! Time sure does fly. I love that blogging inspires me to visit new places, this lavender farm included. I seriously love adventures, and I’m not sure if I would have truly known that if I hadn’t started Selective Potential.
So, life is good! Today, Eric and I are celebrating 3 months until our wedding by going to a movie in the park, and grabbing tacos from the local food trucks. I’ll be back with more adventures next weekend from staycation – a new lighthouse, and the only cave in the lower peninsula of Michigan. See you guys then! Have a super fun weekend. xo
