Today we are launching our blog. I've been sitting on this idea for a couple years, but every time I sat in front of the computer....BLANK. What do I write about? Are we cool enough to have a blog? How do we drive traffic here? Yadda, yadda, yadda. The answer: Don't put so much pressure on myself.
We have a large extended family (YES, YOU!) and new friends coming in everyday. El Primero Hotel grew to be amazing organically, as will this corner of our website. So, in the words of the great Austin Powers, "Allow myself to introduce...myself." If you love puns or corny jokes, we would get along smashingly!.
FAVOURITE ACTOR: CHARLIE CHAPLIN
GO-TO EATS: WAFFLES + FLAPJACKS, TOPPED WITH STRAWBERRIES + WHIPPED CREAM
IF I HAD A SUPER POWER: CREATING AN ENDLESS SUPPLY FRESH, CLEAN WATER FOR THE WORLD
FUN OUTSIDE OF THE HOTEL: SWING DANCING, VINTAGE SHOPPING, TRYING NEW VEGAN SPOTS, PHOTOGRAPHY + FAMILY TIME
GUILTY PLEASURE: BLASTING, SINGING + DANCING TO 90's + EARLY 2000's POP MUSIC IN PAJAMAS
I'm Katie, the favourite second-born daughter of owners, Pie and Sol Roque. I'm a Chula Vista native, along with my sisters Karen, Lisa and Lorie. You've probably met one of us at some point or seen the family photo at the front desk -which pops displays with such pride. I'm a simple gal with a love for decades past and a heavy background in guest services. I guess you can say this hotel and I were meant to be.
This blog will be unfocused. It will have family, friends, history and adventures in Chula Vista and San Diego County. Possibly a recipe or DIY, but I don't want to set the bar too high. Cheers to being random, A-typical and having fun!
xx! -Katie Lee
