I was turning thirty-something and was virtually positive I would dwell in my misery, while my then boyfriend (now fiance) tried to cheer me up by cooking me one of his delicious meals… not this year… nope. My prediction was way off, and my guy snapped me right out of my self loathing with a romantic surprise after all…

It was a peaceful, romantic Los Angeles/Catalina swap. And we will do it again. We have taken many LA day trips, but so far this was my favorite. Next time we may go to Catalina’s more rustic village, Two Harbors, population 300 or so. Most visitors go to Avalon, but if you love quiet, Two Harbors is an option. On the west side of the Island theres a little surf spot my guy wants to try. So much to do discover on Catalina Island. I can’t wait to go Back!

The first thing is to allow yourself plenty of time in advance for the planning stages. We like to have up to 3 weeks to a month lead time so we are not surprised by last-minute unknowns. We set up a schedule, that is, segments of time where we can get the details arranged without our honored target being suspicious. When having enough time away from the party’s honoree is not possible, you will have to activate some fellow operatives to carry out some of the tasks for you. Anticipation is the key here. Looking for trouble spots that might come up and handling those in the beginning makes the whole process go smoothly. Choose your fellow conspirators, like the CIA might, for their expertise or ability to handle specific party needs.
