Huntington Beach in January for work. I love our Orange County properties and this trip gave me the opportunity to stay at Pasea for a week, then head to meetings a few miles south at the Balboa Bay Resort and Newport Beach Country Club. I took full advantage of staying across the street from the beach with a quick run with my account manager from a new advertising/marketing firm, spent some time in restaurants at Pacific City Mall, and just enjoyed time with co-workers and hearing the waves crash on the beach from a distance. I also won an award, so that was cool ... small issue, didn't know I was even nominated for the category, so I wasn't in the room when they were looking for me.
Back in Northern California I spent a day getting all the paperwork together for my tax guy, ran a lot, went to the gym (loving InShape Napa), enjoyed a tasting with Trinitas, learned about what makes Napa so special for wine grapes from the Napa Valley Vintners, and headed to Sacramento to celebrate my grandma's 91st birthday.
