It's an obsession.

I don't think there is a better smell than lavender. I'm serious, I'm in love with it. My relationship with lavender was an uncommitted one at first. Like that guy who's your friend and you know you have every reason to like him, but every OTHER girl likes him so you don't wanna be a cliche. But then you let your guard down for a SECOND and fall absolutely, head over heels in love.
That's how I feel about lavender.

I like the real stuff. The essential oil and products made with the essential oil. However, occasionally I find a "fake" fragrance I like (like French Lavender Scentsy that's discontinued for some reason...) but for the most part, it's the real stuff that gets me. I would bathe in lavender if I could.

I bought a lavender plant at a farmer's market in Utah. Sometimes I go outside just to sniff it.

I think, come September 5th, I'm going to have a lavender themed birthday party to ring in my 25th year of life.

There was a 5K in Utah on Saturday that was through a lavender field. If I didn't love my friends Liz and Jacob so stinking much I would have skipped their wedding to run the most relaxing race of my life. But Liz and Jacob only get married once, and there's always next year for the lavender 5K.



  1. Carrie...some time you need to come to Boise and attend this: ...I just went on Saturday (my 4th time)'s amazing!

  2. GAH! Why did all the lavender festivals have to be this last weekend?! Next year! On my life I will go next year!

  3. Hey Carrie!! Yep, Im working on more deer plushies now actually :) I have a pink and white one lined up to make after I'm one with this one. If you want more details you can email me :)



I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
