Weekend Recap {Santa Cruz, CA}

my beautiful cousin Julia and I
On Sunday my cousin graduated from college, so my mother, grandmother, the boyfriend and I road-tripped up to Santa Cruz, California to spend the weekend with her...
Outdoor table at the Harbor Cafe
I loved the graphic, cheery tablecloth at breakfast.

Open faced crossaint sandwich with egg, cheese, bacon, and avocado with a side of hash browns. Apparently I have quite the penchant for croissant sandwiches.
But I loved the food that was served on it even more. 

"Cali Bene"- croissant topped with poached eggs, bacon, avocado, and hollandaise sauce with a side of hash browns.

Three generations- my mother, grandmother and I. 

Santa Cruz is so beautiful.

We made friends with ladybugs.

This sign inside one of our dinner restaurants was made completely of twigs. 

And here's a quick preview of tomorrow's outfit post...

My shopping acquisition from the weekend is this vintage tooled leather purse. I had been looking for one for ages! I'm also wearing one of my absolute favorites from my grandmother's jewelry collection, this cocktail ring made of opal and rubies. 

It was so nice to spend the weekend in celebration with my family. Hope your weekend was as lovely as mine!
