I'm Going Back to Cali...Cali...Cali...

Ladies most DEFINITELY Love Cool James! Wow...what a blast from the past.

Unfortunately, this post has nothing to do with LL's late 80's hit though...sorry.

Part of the new responsiblities that came with my promotion is that I would be taking over some of our smaller meetings throughout the year - while our Senior Director of Meetings would focus on the larger meetings. I found out today that I'm being thrown into the fire and will be managing my first solo meeting this month...and it's in Newport Beach, CA (Orange County) - which is only a hop, skip and a jump from LA!

This isn't only exciting because of the opportunity that it presents for me to prove myself, but also because I can extend my stay and take a mini vacation on my company's dime (well...the airfare atleast...but that's all I need with all the friends that I have in LA). I immediately called my dearest friend in LA (her family graciously and lovingly "adopted" me while I was living in LA so she is like a sister to me) to tell her the good news. She'll be in town (and will host me during my stay) that weekend and I CANNOT wait to see her! I plan on coming home SUPER exhausted with all that I have running through my mind to pack into that weekend. Although what will probably end up happening is that her aunt will cook (throw down, rather), we'll drink wine, reminisce on old times and laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh...cause that's what we do!

With all of the misery that I endured while I lived there, it is amazing that I can be THIS excited to go back...and I'm glad that I am! Thank you Journey...THANK YOU!
