My husband, Fabian and I just returned from a quick little weekend getaway to Los Angeles, (mostly) compliments of American Express Member Rewards. We arrived in L.A. on Saturday and were back home in Houston yesterday afternoon. The short two days went by in the blink of an eye, but they were exactly what we needed. We returned home feeling rested, recharged and motivated—let’s make things happen! I enjoyed this trip so much because I’ve traveled to L.A. quite a bit and have fallen in love with the city, but Fabian had never been there, so it was pretty special to show him my favorite places in the city and see him fall in love with it, too. We spent time in my regular stomping grounds of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills and ventured out to beautiful Malibu where we spent most of Sunday afternoon. While we’ve been fortunate to travel to many beautiful places, there’s just something about L.A. that makes me so happy. I joked that it was my “happy place”—the sunshine, palm trees, hills, ocean, delicious food, and abundance of fabulous design speak to my core and I feel right at home. There’s no stress of traveling internationally and things are different enough to be exciting while being familiar enough to feel like it could maybe be home one day.
Do tell—what is your happy place?
