paradise

I’m sorry that I’ve been completely MIA…

A few weeks ago, my editor at the magazine asked if I would be interested in going on a press trip to visit The Hilton Oceanfront Carlsbad Resort. Um, did she even have to ask? Yes.

All I can say is, if you’re ever in the San Diego area, stay here. The details will be in our next issue so I won’t say much more than that. Between tours, spa treatments, and activities, it was a jam-packed three days and I loved every minute. Oh, and there were was food…lots of food. Let’s just say that we ate [and drank] very, very well and were spoiled by extremely talented and creative chefs.

I took roughly five-zillion photos, here’s handful…

Thank you to The Hilton Carlsbad and JPR for organizing such a beautiful trip, to my editor for giving me the opportunity to attend, and to everyone that has been there to support me in all of my recent endeavors. I finally feel like I’m in the right place.

Here’s to a few days in paradise…
