When I (Laci) had a day-long workshop scheduled to be held early in the morning in Santa Monica, I knew that it would be a challenge to make it into the city from our home without encountering hours worth of traffic. Hmm, I thought…what if I just stayed right there the night before, and made it a little “Mama beach getaway?” I roped in a friend who was also headed to the same workshop, and we started searching online for the perfect place for a girl’s night.
