Heading Home via IFA

Thanks to the willingness of my employer to support my development, I'm heading home to San Diego next weekend to attend the International Franchise Association's (IFA) Annual Conference.

I'll be attending training to begin my education as a, uh, um, Certified Franchise Executive, OK.

What's even more exciting than the fact that there's no snow is that my family lives there and I'm staying over for a week's vacation. I can't wait to enjoy the kids, the parents (separately, of course), Grandpa Bernie, the grandkids, the beach, Rubios Fish Tacos and Filippi's Pizza.

The photo was taken last summer just before visiting a tourmaline mine north of San Diego with the little ones. Gotta love so cal!
