Summer is almost half over (which I CANNOT believe), and if you’re like me, it went by way too fast. With most of my trips happening in the fall, here are some ways to really enjoy your summer to the fullest:
1. Eat ice cream. And lots of it! I love celebrating all the fun foodie holidays that happen, and with National Ice Cream day last week, it was the perfect excuse. Throw an ice cream, eat a pint before that show you’re watching, however you prefer really!
What’s in my cone, you ask? Moose Tracks ice cream original flavor is the way to go. I got the original flavor which was super nostalgic with the perfect vanilla base mixed with chocolate!
2. Spend lots and lots of time soaking up the sun (with lots of sunscreen and a good book in hand of course). The beach, the pool, the park… enjoy that natural Vit D!
3. Go to a local winery or brewery. A lot of the times they’re super picturesque and a the wineries are a breath of fresh air. Yes I do like my grapes!
By this time you should know that anywhere I go, I try to find a good coffee shop. To me that doesn’t always necessarily mean the very best coffee, but a good combination between #InteriorGoals and delicious caffeinated beverages.
Having lived in Temecula for several years, I can tell you that the one thing that was always missing there was a good coffee shop. You know, a place with good latte art and instaworthy photos.. (*cough* not Starbucks).
Ever since I found out that Augies and A La Minute were joining up and sharing a space in the historical buildings of Vail Ranch, I could absolutely not wait. But wait I had to, as it seemed to take forever to open up! Every detail from the hand-painted signs outside to the super cute interior is just perfect.
I mean, ice cream and coffee in one place is really a genius idea. I love the fact that they borrow items from each other to add to the menu. To name one, the affogato featuring Augie’s coffee with A La Minute’s ice cream.
This salted caramel ice cream was so creamy and delicious. I have yet to try other flavors because I love this one SO DARN MUCH!
Anyways, that being said…you’ll know where to find me next time I’m in town!
Til next time…
