Simple pleasures are not so easily appreciated these days, I find. We have become way to complicated in our daily lives, and far too sophisticated in our needs, wants and desires. The 8th Annual Lavender Festival, Highland Springs, California, addresses this phenomena in an amazingly satisfying way for me. There is nothing like wandering through rows of lavender shrubs, listening to classical music while sipping on an icy lavender lemonade to sooth my soul and ground my spirit.

Deliciously creative meals are available for purchase from various vendors, and then I get to sit at a picnic table in front of a stage where performers offer classical music, country songs or Irish Dancing depending on the day, to be entertained while I eat this organically produced lunch.
On a hay ride with a history lesson is where I'll be while the lunch is digesting. Can't wait for tomorrow - heck, I'm already feeling like a little kid again!
