Our Story

Our Story


We have been married for over 30 years, have 4 amazing married daughters, have created and run spa businesses in NYC and DC being driven by our values - Learning/Imagination/Friendship and Excellence (LIFE).   Encouraging a slower-paced LIFE curve, our focus lately, has been on thousands of little lavender plants that we planted on our family farm in west Michigan, and engaging friends in beautiful, multi-sensory experiences. We are blessed, to be a blessing!

With grateful hearts we gravitate toward rescuing at-risk kids, who need to be reminded that “they are loved and not alone”, and our mission statement reflects this - “To be an engine to support kids at risk worldwide.” For each and every Xander Bunny you purchase, we donate one to a child in foster care. 💜

Lavender Life Company & Little Buds Co. started out of with these experiences in mind - to offer products that “hug” and remind us all how much we are loved.

Together, we strive to:

Promote nurturing environments.Lead in the joy of discovery.Introduce a simpler- softer lifestyle.Make new friends along the way.

With that said, of course we offer a complete satisfaction guarantee on all of our products.  We can’t wait to hear from you as you too, are hugged.
