After attending a peony workshop at Pharsalia in May, I was anxious to return and signed up for the Lavender Workshop, since I really love it and use the essential oil around the house for so many things. It was in partnership with Sunshine Lavender Farms from North Carolina. I thought it would be nice to learn how to grow it. Also, I knew this would be a great vacation day. Right now, for the first time in a long time, we have no trips scheduled because we don’t have anyone to watch the kids and I just am not up the task of a long trip with non-childproofed everything. So, I am really seeking out opportunities for mini get-aways doing the things I really like to do. I live in the city (a small city surrounded by mountains), but I really love the country.
