La Jolla brunch and new Parzen family member Daisy

Brunch at the Pannikin in La Jolla is a sleepy beach town classic. So yummy…

Bagels and lox, California style.

Parzen family welcomes new member Daisy, a rescue. That’s niece Amalia and brother Tad with Daisy. Amalia gave her her name.

Tracie P and I just had to stop for something sweet on our way back to the beach at Michele Coulon Dessertier, who made our wedding cake.

Did I mention that I LOVE BEING ON VACATION. We’re gonna take a nap now… yum…

Just had to add these photos quickly before we head out for the next adventure: we had a great lunch at Michele Coulon Dessertier, who created our wedding cake earlier this year. Most people think of her café purely for dessert, but her savory menu is FANTASTIC. All of her ingredients sourced for local growers, like the salad above, most of which came from San Diego’s famed Chino Farms.

We try to eat at Michele’s every time we’re in La Jolla.

Every time we visit Michele, it brings back such a great memory of our wedding cake! :-)

Now it’s time to get dressed up and head south…
