I recently heard someone say that August is like the Sunday Funday of Summer. As painful as it is for me to admit that it’s is coming to an end, I have to say that I agree. The days seem to be flying by so I’m doing everything I can to make sure that each moment is packed with activities and quality time spent with friends. No Summer scaries for me! 

One thing that I haven’t done enough of is picnicking. There’s something about food, friends, and sunshine that makes me feel 100% content. However, packing everything into a basket, trekking all the way to the Public Garden, and then dealing with the birds and pesky animals makes me stressed. Instead, I met up with Britt at her new apartment for an afternoon chill session complete with healthy snacks, sips and conversation. Best part? We set everything up on her rooftop! No squirrels or ducks stealing my food – yes! 

Let me preface the rest of this post by saying that I am no expert chef. However, I was pretty proud of myself when my suggestion of watermelon on top of avocado toast squares ended up being my favorite on our menu. Whats more is that it’s super easy to make and it also pairs perfectly with IZZE’s Sparkling Peach!
