California Dreaming

I have been day dreaming about the 8-year anniversary trip Brandon and I took traveling up the coast of California. We wanted to take a trip to celebrate, but both of our schedules have been so hectic that a tropical destination was not in the cards. We decided to take advantage of the gorgeous stops along the coast of California. This fun beach look was from our time in Santa Barbara.

We grabbed some brunch at the most adorable little restaurant and bakery, Jeannine’s Restaurant and Bakery. I had the lemon poppy seed pancakes which were insanely delicious! Anytime I see a lemon pastry on a menu the decision has been made for me – I must try it! The pancakes were perfectly fluffy and the butter served with them was infused with the most amazing fresh lemon flavor. Brandon got their french toast which was made of thickly cut brioche bread and was covered with perfectly ripe fruit. With freshly made coffees- DUH!

After breakfast we headed down state street to the beach. There was a cute little event where people were selling handmade jewelry, art , and other nick nacks. I love coming across these little events and finding unique pieces that I might not have otherwise found.

We browsed for a while and went to lounge on the beach and take about a million photos of palm trees. I am slightly obsessed with palm trees and take what is probably (Who am I kidding – Definitely) a completely ridiculous amount of photos of them. Anyone else feel the same way??
