One of my very favorite people called me a few months back and told me that her family was about to celebrate a very special birthday. Her entire family would be in town and they were planning a little staycation at La Costa Resort. It doesn’t get much better than a stay-cation at La Costa, especially when you are surrounded by the ones you love. She wanted to take advantage of having everyone together and get some family pictures taken. As I told Carrie, after meeting her family, I now know where she gets her sweet spirit and all around “awesomeness”. They were all so wonderful and patient and kind, and I just kind of started to feel like I was on vacation with them while I was there.
