Our Camping Trip at Lopez Lake // Arroyo Grande, CA

My mom and dad recently returned from Flordia after a 6-month stay during which time my dad received a liver transplant. He is doing wonderfully, all things considered. Since my parents weren't sure of anything, planning a vacation ahead of time was out of the question. Because of this, my mom pretty much just looked for whatever was available during Spring break that was 5 or fewer hours away.
She hesitantly booked our site at Lopez Lake in Arroyo Grande, CA. We all love San Luis Obispo County but we'd never heard of Lopez Lake. We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into.

The Best Cappuccino Muffins from Rekindle Caffe // Orange, CA

We love us some coffee, and we definitely order coffee when we go to Rekindle Caffe but we mostly go for the muffins. Specifically their cappuccino muffin. #mouthwatering
This coffee shop is right around the corner from our house so when I was on maternity leave I walked there quite often. I'm not sure when I discovered these muffin but I never turned back. We went through a phase of getting them on our way to church each Sunday and I even used to get them on my lunch break. Totally obsessed.
They have great coffee and lots of food options. You can get a wonderful breakfast, lunch, or snack at any time of day. I have grabbed a cup of coffee and a muffin for breakfast and ordered a bagged lunch to go. They have you covered!
They are extra helpful and friendly and usually throw in an extra something to make whatever you're ordering totally worth your time and money. They also always are willing to swap chips for fresh fruit. At least they always have for me.
