Lavender Fields

Last Friday my boyfriend and I toured a local winery, that's almost directly in our backyard! What makes it so lovely is that it is landscaped with fields of lavender. The warm sunny weather with the low hum of bees reminded me of Provence, France.

The sprawling grounds of Matanzas Creek Winery are lovely. Intimate nooks of shade complete with tables and seating dot the grounds and make you never want to leave. It was a warm day when we visited, and the scent of lavender reminded me of the south of France. The distant laughter of wine-tasters mixed in with the scented breeze was perfection. No better way to spend a Friday! I cannot wait to return with my picnic basket and purchase a bottle of their fruit kissed Chardonnay.

Fun fact: I'm allergic to bees. Also: I don't have an EpiPen. I should probably get on that.


  1. Pretty pictures! The color of the dress is absolutely gorgeous and I love the outfit!
    Have a great day! Love, Lisette

  2. Beautiful pictures. And you're looking adorable, as always.

  3. I love your outfit! Yes, an epipen would be a great idea, probably. :) Glad you didn't get stung by an errant bee. :P

    I wonder if those lavenders were 'Provence', because that would make total sense.

  4. Great photos! Love your shoes!


  5. It is absolutely gorgeous! Love your dress Amber and the back is amazing. Do you know I have the same allergy? My eyes swell. Also if I'm in the sun too long without sunscreen, eye and hat protection.

  6. Beautiful photos.




  7. Beautiful photos! Love your dress! So sweet!
