La Valencia Hotel Sponsored Munchkin First Trip to La Jolla!
I spend so much of my life running. Running from one place to another. From meetings to events and everywhere in between.
To be honest, I kind of feel more comfortable running than standing still.
A road trip is like my kryptonite. I have to just sit. Of course, if I’m lucky enough to be in an Uber or chauffeured by this hunk …
Although the problem with running is sometimes you run out. We all break sometimes. We all find ourselves in moments when we just need to stop.
I was certainly getting there … Umm for the past 7 months …
So when these two beautiful women invited munchkin, Rick and I to an event at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, I was all yeses and happy dances!
When you get invited for a complimentary stay at a celeb, blogger or media event, you can get a little nervous if you’re a tiny bit introverted like me because you never know what you are going to get!
Fortunately, I have always been pretty blessed in that department!
Isn’t it absolutely epic!?
Meet Mark Dibella, the hotel’s 8th managing director (…in 90 years. Yes, let that sit a little!). With the turnover in jobs these days, I can only imagine how great it is working at La Valencia Hotel — especially with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. Umm cubicle or ocean views …?
In all seriousness though, isn’t that memorial beautiful? It is the reason this stunning hotel earned her nickname, the Pink Lady!
and my very own kissing booth!
No, it was more like … “Rachel has the best room at the hotel, let’s go check it out.”
Haha! But that’s okay! I’ll take what I can get! Hahah.
While everyone raved about how fabulous their rooms were, there are two rooms at the hotel called the Sky Tower Suites, and those are the absolute best!
They use to be one epic restaurant upstairs with the most break-taking views. Now, they host VIP guests in their one bedroom suites.
It truly was a perfect romantic getaway!
Complete with presents and sweet cards from the staff,
A Dr Seuss tree
A camera crew
And lots of love with my baby!
I highly recommend La Jolla and (obviously) the La Valencia Hotel.
Thank you so much for all the fabulous brands who made our trip so epic!
