Happy Sunday!

I have so many things planned for this weekend, so I’m going to keep this post short.

From working to going to the farmer’s market to celebrating my grandma’s birthday, it’s definitely a busy weekend. Plus, with family from out of state visiting, I get to play the part of the tour guide, which is always fun.

But before I get all wrapped up in life, I have to share with you this honey strawberry basil toast.

It’s like taking a bite out of summer.

By now, I think you know my obsession with all things brunch.

I’ve mentioned brunch probably a bajillion times now. What’s another few?

And ended up choosing this restaurant sitting on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean.

I’ll share more photos with you later. But I couldn’t resist giving you a little peek.

Have you had it? What did you think of it?
