I’ve gone on record stating that summer is my favorite time of the year. Happy to report, summer of ’16 –you are living up to the hype. I love the warm(er) weather, long days, and celebrating a notable holiday— my birthday. Granted not an official holiday; in my household it is an emphatic “take-the-day-off-of-work kind of day.”
With Father’s Day and my birthday close this year, I decided that a celebratory pop of champagne and a special trip was a must. From there the idea of venturing to Catalina Island to take advantage of the many birthday perks including a free ferry ride over to the island couldn’t be passed. In sum, our days were spent on the beaches, chowing down on quality seafood, and having just the right amount of alcohol to keep the tune Margaritaville playing in my head.
We kept the staycation going with another couple days in Orange County to mix business with pleasure. My travel crew certainly didn’t mind the extension 😉 .
