A Fragrant Letter

It's been a great week-end. Date night with hubby, pizza with friends, great mail and endermologie. Simple but pleasurable. I was delighted to receive a letter from Randall, and even more delighted when I opened it and the contents contained the sweet fragrance of lavendar. The aroma drifted upward, signaling my olfactory senses that something good was inside. Yes, indeed. Randall had sent me some real lavendar that he obtained from a lavendar farm in Virginia. It was pure pleasure to all of my senses, causing me to take a deep breath and revel in the aroma of purple flowers. Purple smells divine.

This photo is not representative of how pretty these sprigs are. The color is much more saturated in real life, vibrant with color and fragrance. My lavendar essential oils don't smell this good.

Thank you Randall for thinking of me. You are so thoughtful and it is greatly appreciated.

I thought I'd finally buy a bottle of Aura Cacia's essential lavender oil day before yesterday. The scent did not come close to the lavender Randall shared. The aficionado at the store said his gifts were fresh. Ah, so.

I bought a bottle of lemon instead. Ooh-la! I will grow lavender come a new spring, and sniff lemon oil until then. :)
