be mine, valentine. [vol.2]

Don't you just love long weekends? We sure do. Both Heather and I also love travel and fun getaways. So what's even better is a long weekend+valentines day+a lovely little getaway! Here are a few trips to consider over the long holiday weekend - sure enough to fit the mood for anyone.

Grab your hunny and head for the sun. The Palm Springs Ace Hotel is the ultra hip, happening place. According to the Los Angeles Times, The Ace is, "a fun, affordable retreat that is a bit urban, a bit like a camp-out.” Sounds like a fun time!

Most of us could use some R&R with our loved one. Nothing more perfect than a drive up highway 101 towards northern California - where the trees meet the coast. A darling little quaint town tucked off the beaten path, you'll find Cambria. No better a place to stay then one of the dozens of adorable bed and breakfasts. Take a hike, spend time reading a new book, and a candle light dinner is in order once your reach your destination!

If you're ready for an adventure, pack those bags, find an inexpensive flight on Travel Zoo and head for Sandpoint, Idaho! There you will find one of the most gorgeous mountain villages in the world. Sweitzer Mountain is the Switzerland of the states. Breathtaking scenery with lots of snow! Bundle up with your snow bunny and hit the slopes or sit in the lodge fireside sipping hot cocoa.

If it's too much to leave town, stay local! We are so blessed by the abundance of completely awesome hotels here in California. San Diego has many boutique hotels, and some for a great price! We've fallen in love with the L'Auberge hotel in Del Mar. This is an ideal spa and vacation destination for anyone around the world! So if you're local, take advantage of all that we have to offer here! The hotel is laid back and elegant, with that southern California beach charm. Sit on the patio and enjoy cocktails at sunset.
