Summer 2017 Vacation Blog | 5 Things that Turned a Simple & Affordable Vacation into the Best Time of my Life!

This past week my family and I did a quick 5 hour drive to San Diego, CA and surprisingly it was better than the more elaborate vacations I've had in the past; here's why! 

(1) THE PEOPLE- What made this vacation so great was the fact that I got some quality time with my family. Adrian (my boyfriend) and I are often both so busy with work, it was great to get some time away to relax and show our five year old that the world is so much bigger than just Phoenix, AZ and that there is so much to do and see! 
(2) THE MINDSET-  A lot of my previous vacations my mind would still be at home worried about work or school. This vacation I was determined to kick back and relax. so I cut out all of the bulls****. I packed only the essentials and we hit the road! We made sure to finish up anything work related before we left. And it worked! I found my self laughing more than I have in awhile and not worrying about the small stuff. 
(3) THE HOTEL- We stayed at the beautiful Dana at Mission Bay which is surprisingly a Best Western Hotel it's part of the Best Western premier collection. We always try to stay at Best Western's because any of the points you earn with their rewards program never expire and they have such a great range of options. From a super cheap motel for a business trip to hotels for resort style vacations they seriously seem to offer it all! 
(4) THE FOOD- The beauty of San Diego is there is hundreds of delicious restaurants waiting to be discovered on yelp! This trip we had so much good food! Here's some of our favorites: 
The Mission Cafe

The Menu

La Playa Taco Shop

(5)THE ACTIVITIES-  This trip we made sure to only plan one major thing and go with the flow for the rest of the vacation. So we planned to take our 5 year old to Sea World one day and just hangout at the beach on the rest of the days! Sea World was amazing it was his first time there and our first time since we were kids! We also visited Mission Beach and my favorite beach of all Ocean Beach.

     WHAT WE'VE LEARNEDDuring this trip Adrian and I had time to not only relax but to evaluate our life.We got rejuvenated and inspired to pursue our passions in life ,head on.We're both working towards growing our businesses and eventually being able to work for ourselves and work from home full time. So thanks for tuning in and helping our dreams get one step closer to reality! Comment below your favorite vacation spot and tell us what your lifelong dream is and always remember "every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them."
