A Lavender Story

June 13, 2018
I've been to the Highland Springs Inn & Ranch before, but it was years ago for a lookbook shoot where our model had to run through lavender fields while wearing a bridal gown in 100-degree weather haha. I've always wanted to visit those lavender fields again, and I was so excited when news of a Lavender Festival popped up on my feed. 

I ended up going last weekend and was so happy to be back! The fields aren't blooming as much as I thought they'd be, but they're still pretty to walk through and photograph (everyone was trying to get an epic Instagram photo haha). And in addition to the fields, there were workshops, live music, demonstrations, and even an organic marketplace set up throughout the property. If you go, definitely check out the food area. I saw a bunch of people walking around with lavender lemonade and all sorts of other lavender-flavored goodies!

The Toronto Islands

June 7, 2018
So on my first day in Toronto, I decided to hop on a ferry and venture over to the Toronto Islands. As soon as we docked, I made a beeline for the bike rental shop. I just love riding bicycles, especially when I'm visiting somewhere new. It was so much fun to pass through all of the different parks, beaches, boardwalks, and cute neighborhoods that make up the islands. Plus my little bike excursion was definitely a welcome break from the busyness of the city. I spent a good two hours exploring the 15 islands that make up the Toronto Islands (they're all connected by bridges and pathways) and it was honestly one of the highlights of my trip!

St. Lawrence Market

June 2, 2018
Exactly one week ago I found myself in the city of Toronto for the very first time. My game plan was to spend the day exploring as much as I could on foot, but first I needed food. Cue St. Lawrence Market and its 100+ vendors selling all sorts of fresh fruits and veggies, baked goods, premium meats, cheeses, and more! It very much reminded me of Grand Central Market over in DTLA. St. Lawrence Market was the perfect place to start off my morning and I ended up purchasing more than a few pastries (and souvenirs!) for the road.
