Happy weekend! We’ve been spending the last few days in Santa Cruz. Our summer is short and busy with work and this is the only trip we have planned so we’re making the most of it. We’re staying right on the beach at a popular surf spot (image above from my instagram). It’s not that warm but the pool is super heated and the beach is quiet and peaceful. It’s a short 5 minute walk to the Boardwalk rides too so that’s where we’ll spend the afternoon and evening. At night we listen to the waves crash from the balcony of our hotel room which feels so special.
Then on Sunday I’m headed to Alt Summit in Salt Lake. Will I see you there? I’ll be speaking about brand partnerships, so I’ve been thinking a lot about what best pieces of advice to share (what would you want to know about?). Here are some links to explore, have a great one!
