A Day at the Lavender Festival!

If you have ever read my About page you may remember that one day I want to have a farm! So this place was basically a dream come true!Β Having never heard or seen anything about the 123 Farm, I had no idea what to expect. But it blew me away, complete with a lavender breeze!

Located in Cherry Valley, CA., I first heard of this farm from my Grandma who lives near by! Last year I went to a wedding at the flower fields in Carlsbad. I told her about how beautiful it was & she mentioned some lavender fields that were near her house I should check out.

For my first, but certainly not last time at The 123 Farm, I went to the Lavender Festival to celebrate some family birthdays!

About 45 minuets away from a trip I planed to Solvang, CA, I decided to hit the trail on my way home. Little did I know what IΒ was in store for!
