My g.f. often complains we don't do anything she wants. But this Sunday we are going to Ojai for the lavender festival--sounds very exciting, for her.
I usually tire of Ojai in less then an afternoon but with the lavender element I'm hoping to make it an extra hour. Ojai creates a fatigue I only feel at Lord & Taylors, my grandmothers and Santa Barbara. I get so tired I even lose my appetite. Too much quiet and old people I guess.
I may not be excited to be going but if it sounds good to you check out http://www.lavenderfestival.net/
They're also having this fun lavender themed dinner; it's sold out however--maybe next year.
