I’ve only stayed at a Ritz-Carlton once before and I was literally counting down the days until I left for Miami because I was SO excited to stay at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach. What makes Ritz-Carlton different from all other hotels? The service, touches of luxury, and stunning views on the property make each Ritz-Carlton incredibly unique. I felt like a queen with my 10th floor balcony room with gorgeous views of the pool and beach. My room was spacious, comfortable, bright and beautiful. The bathroom was literally marble from floor to ceiling with a huge bath tub, beautiful shower, water closet, and double vanity.
Each morning I ate breakfast on the outdoor patio and on my last day, I was able to enjoy some much needed R&R by the pool. In complete honesty, when I was sitting pool side, looking at the beautiful palm trees while listening to Andy Grammer, I just started crying. I spent so many years hiding in a cubicle listening to Andy Grammer telling me to keep my head up. I prayed that one day I could be happy again; that I could live a life of passion, purpose, and authenticity as I had learned about in my leadership class during the UNH MBA program. I spent years dreaming about the life that I am living now and the impact that I could have on others.
During my time in Miami, I met Jessie for the first time, and I could not ask for a more amazing team member. And at our event, we brought a room full of women together who otherwise would have never crossed paths. I recorded a podcast with Adela Guerra in front of an audience of women who left feeling inspired and hopefully, a little more fearless in pursuit of their own dreams. After the podcast, we went on the terrace outside and watched the most magical sunset over the city of Miami.
I will never forget this special trip and the memories that I made with SC Sisters during Swim Week and the memories that I made at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach. I promise you that their hotels are worth the splurge because your mindset is completely transformed while you are there.
