Postcard from Carlsbad: Pacific Ocean

Beach in Carlsbad TBEX retreat

A few weeks ago, I head to Carlsbad, California, for a weekend retreat with the staffs of TBEX and NMX. We stayed in a beach house along the Pacific Ocean coast which offered a wonderful view to stir up lots of creativity.  I love quiet mornings looking out at the ocean.

    Carlsbad is very dear to my heart. Glad you enjoyed your time on its beaches and hope you had a chance to check out the Carlsbad Village as well. Lots of great restaurants, wine bars, and boutiques. 🙂

      We made it to several great restaurants and also ordered takeout to eat on the deck. Very relaxing.
