Stop and taste the roses.

This message above was the start of my lunch date with my grandma and I at The Camp in Costa Mesa. I would say it's genius how they put a different message on each parking spot. Our first stop for the day was Native Foods, which is a lovely organic/ vegan/ vegetarian restaurant with an incredible menu. You will definitely get my recommendation to this place.
This is my grandma in heaven with the peanut butter parfait I made her try, because it is oh-so-delicious! We completely shared the same reaction to it.
One of the most gorgeous little creations I have ever laid eyes on with rose petals trickled across a fluffy creme colored frosting. It hardly looks edible, though I can officially say I ate actual roses for the first time this day. I'll admit, I'd rather look at them than eat them though. Definitely an interesting first time experience with this cardamon rose cupcake, and surprisingly delicious. 
After we filled ourselves with organic-deliciousness, and I decided that buying the restaurant's cookbook is a must, we drove a ways down to San Juan Capistrano mission, specifically for the summer course I'm taking.
 The architecture and the gardens there were absolutely stunning. It is bizarre that this was all built two centuries ago.
I actually had my red boater had on earlier in the day, but after my grandma insisted that I looked like I was heading to a derby, I decided to leave it behind in the car to avoid any odd judgments to accompany my her's.
 So the moral of my long, image heavy post is: "eat your vegetables."
