I am super excited about my upcoming vacation. In June my best friend and I will be going to California. This is amazing for a few reasons. 1, I haven’t been to Cali since I was like 8. My grandfather lived there and we went to visit. 2, my best friend and I have always wanted to take a girls trip. More girls would be nice, but hey…
We just got our plane tickets a few days ago so it’s pretty much set in stone. Initially we were going to go to a retreat called Hio Retreat, but we decided to skip it. If you have never heard of it check it out. It’s an all women’s healing and self-care retreat. We would have had to bring our own tents and I just don’t think it would have been a good idea on a plane. We wanted to keep it simple and stress free. Plus, the retreat was hella expensive.
I will be documenting this trip every step of the way. I plan to blog about it and do a couple of vlogs while we’re there. We will be spending 3 days in LA and 3 days in Palm Springs. And we’re taking a road trip from LA to Palm Springs which I think will be exciting. AND IT WILL BE VLOGGED!!
I also feel like this is a breakthrough for me. I want to make changes in my life, travel more, become a well read black woman and do the things I’ve never done or imagined doing! I am damn near 40 and it is time to live my best life. We only live once so why not live full. Hell, I just might not come back from Cali. Lol!
Yesterday me and the bestie sat down and put a plan together. We got through the first day lol. Mainly because we want to do so much. We decided that we would just explore on the first day. She wants to ride down Rodeo Drive and I am cool with it, but I hardly see the point. We plan to visit Santa Monica Beach and Venice Beach just to scope things out. Then we will check in out hotel and explore more later.
We will also visit the African-American museum and see the Hollywood sign. There are so many things we would like to so with so little time. I am so freaking excited.
Anyone live in Cali? LA or Palm Springs? I’m taking suggestions all day. At least for the next 98 days!
