The Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel holds special significance to Joe and I. Joe started working there as the overnight cook when we were dating. I started working there as a front desk agent during the first year of our marriage. We grew closer together when I worked there, we were able to actually spend time together with coordinated days off. We made really amazing friends there, it grew to be a type of mini family...the Ritz Carlton employees really embraced our growing family. Many of our Ritz friends have moved on and are now scattered all over the U.S and abroad, some are still there, nevertheless they all, and the the hotel, mean so much to us.
During the 1st part of our trip we were privileged to be able to spend a glorious night at our former hotel. We had a beautiful room with a ocean view. We ate like kings, feasting on a 7+ course meal made specially by our dear friends. We swam in the pool, relaxed in the jacuzzi. Jade & I even trekked down the steep hill to salt creek beach and played in the sand. It was truly a wonderful day & evening....I wish we could of stayed there longer. It is safe to stay that Laguna and the Ritz will always feel like home.
