I've recently come to the realization that brunch is my favorite meal of the day. I thought I was a breakfast person, but truth be told, I don't really enjoy eating in the mornings. I will, however, make a full breakfast spread at 2pm, and fully enjoy it, and wonder why I don't make breakfast more often. 

So yeah, brunch gets me. Breakfast is like your strict (but loving) mom: healthy and well-balanced, with the intention of fueling your day. Brunch is like your favorite aunt: less-healthy but still fairly balanced, with champagne poured in your orange juice. 

In my opinion, the only thing that makes brunch better than it already is, is a view. That's where Canoe comes in. They have what is arguably the best backyard of any restaurant in Atlanta. It's situated along the Chattahoochie River, and they have lawn chairs all around for people to sit, sip, and chat. Lots of people wandered around after they ate and just soaked up the sun. I can only imagine how great the vibe is during the fall!

I'm fresh out of post ideas today, but I felt like plopping this photo right here as motivation to do something with this backyard. The weeds are so overgrown that even the dog doesn't want to lay around in it.

Don't you love when a place lives up to its name? Such is the case with Tasty's in Downtown Fernandina Beach. Out of almost 200 reviews, the place had 4.5 stars on Yelp, which means I had to try it.
